This is a "rolled diaper cake." You just roll each diaper up and secure with a rubberband. Then use the diapers as "building blocks." Put a large ribbon around each tier to keep diapers together. Use real cake pillars and trays from a craft store. You can not move this cake...you have to set it up where you want it to stay. : ) Feel free to visit my diaper cake blog at http://www.simplydeliciousdiapercakes.blogspot.com
do you know where i could get the instructions for the big 6 layer diaper cake on thi site. please e-mail to javanta7@hotmail.com
I want to attempt to make this beautiful work of art. Can you tell me what size diapers, how many per layer, does the brand of diaper make a difference? What size cake pillars? Do you have a more clear picture that I could look at. I want it to be just like your piece of art. I am so excited, I can't wait to get started. Thank you , thank you, thank you!
