I created this cake for my friend Lisa. It was night time cake. Everything you need to get ready for Bed. I included PJ's, bottle, Nuk, blanket, towel, bedtime bath bubbles and shampoo and washcloths. Along with the diapers of course that I used to make the cake! :)
I made this cake for my sister-in-law. This was for her third child (my adorable Godchild :)) Because it was her third child and she already has a girl I went with the normal diapers that I use to make the cake. I surrounded it by receiving blankets and wrapped that with ribbon. But like I said because this was her third child I did not fill it with normal baby stuff. I went with a scrap theme because my sister in law loves to scrap like me. I got stickers, tape and lots of cute things to scrap out the first year. I took chip board letters and made her name on the larger part of the cake. It turned out really cute.
I have posted this cake before. Again I went with a bath time theme. This one has baby shampoo and lotion with the diapers wrapped about it. The bottom layer is a hooded towel, the next layer is a regular baby towel and the top is a receiving blanket. It is topped off with a washcloth monkey mitt. I filled the layers with a rattle, travel size shampoo, baby powder, lotion, wash clothes and a finger puppet.
This is my first ever diaper trike! I found pictures on-line and went off of the pictures. When I did it there were not a whole lot of instructions out there. Not sure if they are online now or not. I took diapers and rolled them up... it is hard to see but there are actually three sets of rolled up diapers. One in front, two in back. That is why I call this one a trike and not a motorcycle. I have seen it done like a motorcycle as well with one set of diapers in front and one in back. Anyhow! ;) I took about 30 diapers in the back to tires and 40 for the front. I wrapped those with ribbon to cover the rubber bands. Then I took a receiving blanket and went through all three sets of tired to hold them together (this is the pink blanket down by the monkey's feet). I then places a bib over the front and one over the middle (to act as a seat for the monkey, make sure this is a LARGE bib) I took another receiving blanket and tied it up through the front tires and placed a bottle in the center (head light) and kris crossed the blanket over the top of it to make the handle bars. I put baby mittens on the end of the blankets to make the bars look more complete. And then placed a ribbon over the crossed section of the blanket. Then I place the monkey on the seat... I know these instructions are pretty confusing and I am sorry! I made it a while ago and should have wrote the instructions down as I went through it. But of course I didn't think of it then!!!
Okay so I know these are not a diaper cake but I had to add them on here! They are wash cloth lollipops! You take a wash cloth and wrap it up, pin it and then attach it to a tongue depressor or large craft stick. I then wrapped them with cellophane and tied it off with a ribbon! They are super cute, super easy and pretty inexpensive to make!
