Purple and Silver Elegant Diaper Cake

These are pictures of a diaper cake gift that I made for my cousin's baby shower. She was having a little girl so I knew that everything would be purple because purple is my cousin's favorite color. Silver was used as a contrasting color.

From Bottom to Top (a short description of the layers)
Bottom Box: Contains a thick blanket and receiving blankets.
"Doily" Layer: A customized (by me) purple, lavender, and silver tutu with lavender ribbon and purple flowers
Diaper: Cynthia Rowley Special Edition Pampers in purple held tied by a matching purple ribbon
Box: Onesies and matching bibs
Diaper: Same as before
Topper: Rose hairclip and card with envelope made from leftover wrapping paper

The first thing I did (after purchasing the items for the cake) was wrap any gifts that are to be placed in the boxes. In this instance, I wanted to use square boxes. Next I hunted down round cake pans so I could place the diapers into. I used the wrapped boxes as guides to determine the sizes I would need. I rolled each diaper and secured the roll with a rubber band. I placed the diapers into the pan in evenly around the perimeter of the pan and then continued to fill the center of the pan with more diapers. Once I had finished this step, I took ribbon and wrapped the diapers to hold the overall cylindrical shape. I removed all the rubber bands. I secured the layers with tape to form a cake.

Everyone enjoyed the diaper cake. My cousin cannot wait to use the tutu and matching hair clip on her daughter.

My goodness Sherilyn, what a beautiful and creative diaper cake! Thank you for sharing it with us! I love that you created a cute baby tutu and hair clip to decorate it with. The gift box idea is so adorable. :)

The boxes are brilliant! What a great way to add height to the cake! This will work perfect for the diaper cake I am making this weekend. Thanks!
