Diaper Cake Deluxe craft



* If the sex of the baby is known, you can purchase printed diapers for a boy or girl.


  1. Cut 48 feet of the narrow ribbon into one-foot lengths. Decide whether you want the printed decoration on the diaper to show on the cake. If you do, roll each diaper from the fold outwards, keeping the decoration on the outside. If not, roll with the decoration on the inside. Tie each rolled diaper with a length of narrow ribbon.
  2. Create the top tier by filling the baby bottle with the candy. Stand five or six diapers around the bottle and tie them tightly around the bottle with a length of narrow ribbon.
  3. Create the middle tier with about 15 diapers. Tie tightly together with the narrow ribbon.
  4. Create the bottom, and largest tier, using about 27 diapers. To make the tying simpler, first tie an inner circle of diapers together. Then stand the final row of diapers around this circle and tie once again.
  5. Place the largest cake tier on the cardboard round. Using several pieces of adhesive tape on the underside of the diapers, tack them to the platter. Don't use so much tape that the diapers will tear when the mother disassembles it. Place the second tier on top of the base and attach with tape to the lower tier. Place the smallest tier on top and attach as you did the other tiers.
  6. Tuck the various baby accessories inside the ribbon, all around the cake. Make sure they fit snugly, and tie with more ribbon if necessary to keep them from falling off. Finish the cake with the one-inch ribbon wrapped around each tier to help secure the accessories and provide a finishing touch.
