It's a girl!

Well I hope it is! I've been wanting to make a nappy/diaper cake forever, so when my lovely friend announced she was having a little girl it gave me the perfect opportunity to make one.


I looked at lots of tutorials on the internet to give me an idea of how best to construct the cake (you can find the ones I used here on my Pinterest board). I then adapted things to suit my needs, for example the base layer of the cake was created by gluing a strip of card around a cake board. This meant that I could create a solid base for the cake lose things like baby grows and burp clothes inside. The tulle "icing" was added to cover the nappies which had brightly coloured edges and the additional cake tiers are secured with plastic rods which makes for a very stable cake.


I have to say for a first attempt I'm not too unhappy with the finished product and I had lots of fun making it and would definitely make another one at some point.


Thanks for stopping by today.
