Step by Step Diaper Cake Tutorial, Animal Theme for Boys & Girls

To see me make this Diaper Cake, step by step, click here:

The Finished Diaper Cake/Nappy Cake.
All of the ingredients for the Diaper Cake.
Roll each diaper securely and bind with rubber bands.

Fit the diapers snugly together to form a base, then repeat the process for the next two tiers.
Bind each tier with string, then fold receiving blankets and wrap them around the diapers.
Secure the blankets with diaper pins.
Use a dowel to stabilize the tiers, and tie colorful ribbon around each blanket.
By now the diaper cake should be quite sturdy.
Decorate with colorful and useful baby items and toys.
Tuck and hang objects around the cake.
Different color ribbons make the cake look more interesting.
Color co-ordinate the baby shower.  These are inexpensive items I bought at the dollar store (with the exception of the big bows, which were a gift.)
Cute details make all the difference and make the shower seem more personal.
Add food, and enjoy!
