Making a Nappy Cake
Here's what you need to do in order to make a nappy cake on your own:
Buy the diapers
The first and most important step would be to buy nappies. You can not make a cake if you do not have any, so the next time you're off shopping add it to your list.
Roll them up
Now that you've got the diapers, you need to roll them up into a cylinder and fit three – four of them so as to form a larger cylinder.
Roll a single diaper on the table and spread it so that it covers the entire table. Now that this is done place four of the roled up diapers on it and then toll it up so as to form a giant roll. Do this several times and arrange them in a circular form – this will form the first tier.
Repeat this process and create as many tiers as you wish – soon it would smile a wedding cake. You can use your own creative mind to decorate the cake. Try placing baby socks, shirts and even toys so that the cake looks pretty and at the same time useful for the arriving baby.
