  • There are two basic designs. You can roll each one into small rolls, using safety pins to hold them in the rolled up shape. Then wrap the ribbon around them to hold together. The other design is easier and you just roll one diaper up, and then layer them around each other in a spiral, pinning them on. Everything else you just use for decoration.

    I made both of the above. For the girl's cake I took small silk flowers and poked them in around like a real cake. With the boy's cake I hung paci's from ribbons. To keep the layers from toppling over, I used a thin dowel rod (you can get them in the craft section at walmart) and snipped it shorter. I stuck it down inside to hold them together rather than taping them.

  • I've made a few and it was really easy! I didn't roll the diapers as shown in the cakes above, I spun them around and I think it looks better that way... If you need help send me a PM.
