I'm trying to make a diaper cake for my cousin's babyshower on the 22nd. This is waht I have done so far, what else can I do to make it better??? I was planning on adding ribbon around the bottom layer of the cake, but have clue where to go from there. TIA


Here are pics of the wash cloth roses

    I would add a 3rd-tier at the top.  Just use a cute stuffed animal in the center, and put travel size changing supplies around it (baby powder, baby oil, baby wash, baby lotion).

    Also, take the Baby bib, and let it drape from the top 3rd tier. I would also add a baby bottle, to go along with the saying on the bib.

    Take the two bottom tiers and find fabric that have that light blue in it, or use baby shower ribbon (with ducks, diapers, carriages-those sort of design).

    It looks great.  If you really want to add anything, maybe make some small blue or white bows and secure them on the side of the bottom layer with maybe a rattle or two hanging from them.  But if you don't do anything more, it's adorable.

    I made a diaper cake (very different from yours) for my daughter inlaw last year.  I didn't cover the diapers with a receiving blanket.  I had 3 tiers and stuffed inside amongst the diapers, I hid thermoter, spoons, rattles, teething gel, etc.  The top layer was receiving blankets and washcloths instead of diapers.  Then I placed a couple blue booties on the top with a few silk babies breath inside.
