How to Make a Diaper Cake

I really thought making a diaper cake was one of the hardest yet cutest things someone could make for a baby shower.  I figured my sister-in-law's baby shower was the time to try.  Surprisingly, its very easy!  Takes a little time, but not too much!

The first step is to wrap all the diapers with rubber bands.  I've heard you can skip this step, but it is harder for the diapers to stay rolled.  The color of the bands doesn't matter as they'll be hidden by ribbon.

The next step is is to make the bottom layer around another gift item, such as baby lotion.  Secure your layer in place with a big band.
Repeat this step to make the second layer.

 The top layer is created around a baby bottle for my cake.  My then 7 year old assisted greatly with the process up to this point.

Adding an "It's a Boy" lollipop and cute elephant for the cake topper. And tying ribbons around the layers to hide the rubber bands.
And there you have the result.  Easy, beautiful, and practical!
