What A Beautiful Diaper Cake!

Hi everyone! I know it's been a while since I posted, I guess I just needed a break as it's not just that I didn't post, I also haven't done anything creative to post about. That is until now. It's not sewing but it was fun none the less.

We had a shower yesterday for my oldest daughter Stephanie and I just wanted to show you the diaper cake I made for the shower. It turned out gorgeous and it's was a hit at the shower.

Since this isn't something I do everyday, I searched the internet for inspiration and instructions. There were so many different ways to make a diaper cake so my first problem was to decide which method I would use. I finally decided on what I call the "swirl" method and I found the instructions on YouTube. The video provided by Becca at Diaper Cakes by Becca ( on YouTube at this link - Diaper Cake Video was perfect to get me going.

Below are a few pics from my assembly. The most genius thing (at least I think so) was how I put the words "BABY" on the cake. I hot glued a long pin to the back of the letter, the pin was on of the long ones with the yellow flower on top. Then I just stuck it into the diapers. Lastly, to keep the baby angel on top, I used (again) long pins. I didn't use hot glue anywhere that would touch the diapers but I did glue the bows and duckies to the green silk leaves so they would stay in place.

Oh also, the base is just a thick foam core board I bought at Michaels. Then I wrapped it in some cute wrapping paper. It was the perfect size. I first thought I would buy a cake base but none of them were big enough, I think this is cuter anyway.

I know this isn't a complete tutorial but I wasn't thinking to take pics. Go to Becca's YouTube vid to get details.
