Diaper Cakes For Recent Showers

I love making these diaper cakes, you can pretty well spend as much as you like. And they all look so adorable. I actually find the stuffed animal I like first then buy everything to match. The musical "Jesus Loves Me" bear has most of it's goodies attached to the outside. While the Green trimmed elephant has all of it's goodies hidden in cavities left in diaper circle, ( There are like 40 some items inside). You simple roll appropriate sized toss-away diapers into cylinders and I rubberband. Use a new baby bottle as your center for the top layer. It sticks out from the diapers and allows you to wrap your stuffed animal around it, and rubber band the arms, or both the arms and legs.
When I make my next one I think I will have to take some pictures of the actual assembly, so the 3 tiered diaper cake makes it to the shower. Of course I use a clear basket Bag ( the kind you use the blow-dryer on) to finish off, rubber band the top and add a big bow.

I have see these covered with receiving blankets, but I haven't tried one yet. I have an up and coming wedding so I think I will try making one out of towels for one of Emily's showers.
