Monkey Garden Diaper Cake
Front Of Monkey Garden Diaper Cake
This is my very first attempt at a diaper cake. It came out very colorful, bright and nice. I am very proud of myself (and so is my husband). My daughter couldn't believe that I made this and she said she was very impressed. Some customers at work seen it and now I have two orders to make. I got the idea from a magazine but they used receiving blankets. I went on Google and found your site which gave me the idea of using diapers. They used this as the centerpiece. The mother-to-be was so excited as she started undoing the cake to see all the little surprises in there.
This is a three-tier cake. I used a large bottle of baby lotion for the first two tiers and a 4-oz baby bottle for the last tier. I used approx. 23-25 diapers, rolled up and held with rubber bands for the first tier, covered by a baby blanket. The second tier I used about 16-18 rolled up diapers (they are size 1). That was covered with a receiving blanket. The third tier I used three onesies and three pants.
I wrapped ribbon around the first two tiers which I sewed flowers and butterflies on them. The third tier I used baby headbands. The cake was set on a stryofoam based which I covered with a baby flannel print and a border. I put baby necessities thru-out the cake (slippers, rattles, shoes, rubber bands for baby's hair, etc.) I pinned a monkey blankie to the top of the cake. I also surrounded the cake with lollipop washcloths that I made.
Thank you for this site.
