Giraffe and Safari Diaper Cakes For A Safari Baby Shower Theme


I started by rolling size 2 diapers and securing them with rubber bands. I then began to build the 3-tier giraffe cake around a bottle of champagne for the center core. I arranged the rolled diapers in circles around the bottle, 3 circles for the lower tier, and 2 circles for the middle tier.

Then I wrapped four (unrolled) diapers around the top of the bottle to fill out the middle of the top tier and added 1 circle of rolled diapers around the outside of the top tier. I used 1-1/2 inch ribbon on the bottom and layered 7/8 inch giraffe print ribbon over it as I wrapped each layer. I staggered the seams and added a wooden giraffe cut-out to cover the seam. In the top tier I added a plastic utensil set, a thermometer and a few other trinkets and then covered all of the layers with crinkle paper. I topped it all off with a Gentle Sounds Giraffe that has a mother's heartbeat (from the womb) and 4 other soothing sounds.

I then made 3 other 1-tier diaper cakes with zebra, tiger and leopard print ribbon & stuffed animals to go along with the Safari animal baby shower theme.

So cute Tambra! Thank you for sharing your adorable diaper cake photos with us! I love all of the cute ribbon you used. It matched your theme perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing!
