Diaper Cake

I am co-hosting a baby shower for a friend at work tomorrow. Last night, I decided to try and make a diaper cake. I think it came out pretty cute for my first one! Her theme is elephants, green and gray. The cake board base I covered in fabric. The flowers are washcloths rolled up to look like flowers secured with baby safety pins and a zipper flower too! I hope you enjoy my video, it was a fun one to make!

Recipe:
cake board
fabric to cover board
tape
59 diapers size 1 (this is the amount and size I used:  bottom tier - 34, middle tier - 18, top tier - 7)
package of rubber bands or clear hair bands
(2) 8 oz. baby bottles (optional, I didn't use)
ribbon
baby toys / gifts
cake topper




The invitation I designed in Photoshop and then added some "scrapping" to it :)

I love the diaper cake - it's nice to see a colorful one, since they're traditionally all white!
