Baby Shower Gift Cake

coolestparty

A baby diaper cake is a fantastic gift for a baby shower! A good baby shower gift cake takes a much needed item (diapers) and transforms them into a spectacular display. By the time you finish “decorating” with a few token items, you've got an incredible gift the new family is sure to love. Here's how to make your own and save a bundle.

The Diaper Base

The first step in making a baby shower gift cake is to assemble the diapers. The bigger the cake, the better you need to assemble them. If you're not sure of your ability to make a towering cake entirely of diapers, then try this trick. Start with a box or stack of boxes, then line the outside of the boxes with the diapers and tie them together with clear string or fishing line. (If you glue them on, you might mess up the diaper and render it useless).

If you use a box base for your baby diaper cake, you have the advantage of making a huge, impressive cake for very little money. In fact, you can make a towering baby diaper cake with just one pack of diapers if you layer them over boxes! Another benefit is that you significantly reduce the chances of the whole thing falling apart on you at the last minute.

The Decorations

After you've got your diapers in place and the boxes, if any, are completely covered, it's time to decorate! Start with a wide, pretty pastel ribbon to circle each layer. This will help to hold things together and hide the string as well as provide decoration. Add a big bow on top and you've got your basic cake together, just like that!

To add rattles or other small toys use a dab of hot glue to attach them to the ribbon, not the diaper. (Put hot glue on the diaper and it may not be usable later). Make sure you use the glue on the label or another part of the toy that won't be damaged. Larger items may be positioned on top of one layer to lean against the next one and secured to the ribbon with a rubber band.

You can save money by getting these smaller items at dollar stores or by buying large packs and opening them to space them around the cake. Rattles, bottles, pacifiers, and baby booties are just a few top picks for baby diaper cake decorations.

The Final Touch

Top your baby diaper cake with a big bow and perhaps a gift card so the new parents can take care of a few last minute items. It's the perfect finishing touch on a truly fabulous gift!

Hello every body my name is Synder Anderson I just want to share my experience with the world on how Lord Alika help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1 kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost e very time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +13217666393. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http
