Diaper Cake - How did they do it?
It has been a while since I last posted anything! How's everyone?
A friend had asked me to make a diaper cake... I had made simple one tier diaper cake, but she wanted something more elaborate - 2 tiers with all the frills.
Does anyone know how to cover the dipes completely with blankets so that the diapers are not seen and stablize the tiers?
I really like this style of diaper cake. I have=been surfing for hours and hours and I cant find any instruction to make this specific cake.

To cover the diapers with the blankets, you basically are going to "wrap" the diaper "layer" in the blanket. Lay out your blanket right side down, place your layer into the center and bring up the blanket up the sides of the layer. You need to make sure the blanket covering your layer is big enough to go up all the way around and meet at the top. Takes some practice to get is smoothed out. I pin at the top with straight pins. If the blanket doesn't make it to the exact center of the layer, it doesn't really matter as the top layer will cover your center. do the same with the top layer. I use double sided tape to "connect" the top and bottom layers. It will hold together, but you still have to be careful.
When I don't cover the layers with blankets, I stabilize by using wooden skewers between the top and bottom layer, more stable that way.
Hope this helps.
