If you are looking for a quick and easy tutorial that will show you how to make a diaper cake, then look no further. There are several ways to create a beautiful diaper cake. In this article, I will cover everything from using a cake board to using long chopsticks or skewers to roll up the diapers. After you’ve gathered your supplies, it’s time to get started.
Using a charger
If you’re in the market for a diaper cake, you might be wondering how to get started. Most craft stores carry chargers, and you can even find some at the Dollar Tree. Cardboard rounds, used to make cakes, are an inexpensive way to create a diaper cake. To give the cake a more attractive presentation, consider purchasing a tiered cake stand. You can find one at any department store or dollar store.
Once you’ve purchased the charger, you’ll need 70 to 100 diapers for each layer. Then, you’ll need a three-piece round cake pan. These pans typically come in sizes of 10, 8 and 6 inches. A disposable charger of the same size can also work as a base. Once the cake pan is filled with diapers, you can start decorating. If you want to make your cake look extra cute, you can also use rolled-up receiving blankets, or strips of wrapping paper. Finally, you’ll need a cake topper to cover the hole.
Using a cake board
A board for a diaper-cake isn’t necessarily a necessity. A cardboard tube will do just fine. You don’t have to make it perfectly round or even perfect, since the top of the cake will be hidden. Another alternative is to use a paper towel roll, as they tend to be smaller in diameter than wrapping paper rolls. You’ll need to make sure you take measurements before starting to cut the tulle, however.
For this tutorial, you will need 50 medium-sized disposable diapers. The size of each diaper will vary, so be sure to buy enough. You can also purchase extra diapers and give them to the mom-to-be separately. Another way to dress up a cake is to add ribbon. You can also cut ribbon into 1-foot lengths. You can also place printed decoration on the outside and inside of the diapers.
Using long skewers or chopsticks
A great way to decorate a diaper cake is to use wooden skewers. Place them evenly spaced in the bottom layer of the cake, and place them two rows deep. Use the chopsticks to insert the dowels, but make sure they are long enough not to poke through the diapers. You can also use an elastic band to hold the layers together. To finish the diaper cake, use ribbon to tie the top, and secure the layers with pins or double-sided tape.
Alternatively, you can use paper triangles to create a diaper cake that’s both functional and attractive. To add a personal touch, wrap the ends of the triangles in a rubber band and stick them into the diaper cake. Afterward, wrap the top layer with ribbon and secure it with small safety pins. You’re ready to serve the diaper cake! Now, you can decorate your diaper cake with lots of fun, creative ideas.
Making a diaper cake is easy, as long as you follow a few basic steps. First, roll up a bunch of diapers, secure them with a piece of tape or rubber band, and place them in a circle. Once they are secure, tie a ribbon around the cake to hide the band. Some people prefer to overlap their rolls, but this may require more diapers. You can also separate the tiers and create smaller ones.
To make the top layer of the cake, roll the diapers tightly around the paper towel roll, securing them with a rubber band. Repeat with the second and third layers, and then secure them with a rubber band. Once the cake is complete, wrap it in cellophane. The finished diaper cake should be ready to serve! It can be given as a gift or given as a baby shower gift.
Using curly ribbon bows
You can use ribbon to secure the icing and hide safety pins. Just overlap the ends and use a hot glue gun to secure. You can also use a bigger rubber band and wrap the entire diaper cake with the ribbon. After completing the top and bottom layers of the cake, assemble the cake. You will need two hours to complete this project. A diaper cake is around $70 if you include gifts.
To start making your diaper cake, prepare a cardboard cake base. Place a paper towel tube in the center of the cake stand. Glue or double-sided tape the diapers to keep them stable during the arranging process. Attach a fatter ribbon to the base of each diaper with a double-sided adhesive or glue. Be sure to tie the ribbon tightly enough to secure the diapers but not too tightly so they bow or fall apart.
Using paper towels
A diaper cake can be created using paper towels. First, roll up six or seven diapers. Then roll up another six or seven diapers and tie the ends together with a ribbon. Next, place the top layer of diapers and tie it with more string. Repeat for the remaining diapers. Using the same technique as you did in the first step, the diapers will resemble a star.
To add a festive finish to your cake, decorate the top layer with colorful baby washcloths or rolled up receiving blankets. Roll the towels like you would diapers and then secure them with string. To make the diaper cake look prettier, use an extra ribbon to wrap the top tier. To make it more attractive, add polka dots and other decorations. A diaper cake made with paper towels is a great gift for a new baby and is perfect for a baby shower.
