| | Re: Can we talk diaper cakes?
I've only made a few diaper cakes for friends, but I didn't remove the rubber bands. I got a package of the tiny clear ones at wal-mart that had an obscene amount in it for $3 (I think it had 1000 in it but not sure). I'm too lazy to take all those things off!
Each tier I tie a receiving blanket or burp cloth around with a 3/8" grosgrain ribbon to hold it in place.
You can get the foil wrapped cake bases (about 1/2" thick) at any of the craft stores. There are 2 per package and they range in price from $5-$10 depending on what size you need, but if you use a 50% coupon they aren't too expensive. You should be able to find the scalloped cake circles at any of the major chains too. Wilton now makes a nice silver one that my local Wal-Mart even carries. Even if you can't find them you can wrap the brown ones in any pretty paper or in the silver cake foil.
