Diaper cake, anyone?

 

I was recently invited to a baby shower, and I was stumped about what to bring the mommy-to-be.  It's her first baby, and I wanted something unique, which would be hard to do in this small town!  We have ONE store in 20 miles that would sell baby stuff, and it's Wal-Mart. 

So, I thought and thought....finally!  I decided to make a diaper cake!!  Okay, great idea, now how?  There are a plethora of ways to make one, but the style I liked the best was the “spiral” style.  I prefer to call it a wave, it looks more like a wave to me, but here it is!

Sorry about the low quality pics…they are from my blackberry, which is a hand-me-down as it is, so they’re not the greatest, but you get the idea!

Here’s one more, a little better:

I ended up hot gluing the cute little monkey to the top, since he wouldn’t stay for ANYTHING.  LOL  But I tested it out, and the glue peeled right off, so it was okay.

She loved the cake, and it was a big hit with the other party goers.  For my first one, it was really easy!  I know the ribbons aren’t totally straight, but I love the way it turned out!
