My first nappy cake
Lisa and Manwai are having their baby next Wednesday so I thought I would have a go at making a nappy cake. I watched some demos on u tube but adapted them slightly. This is the top layer. I bought a large pack of pampers, a bag of elastic bands and two pretty white baskets and filled them with baby goodies. I opened a nappy and rolled it up and kept it in shape with an elastic band. I made enough of these 'rolls' to go around each basket and stood them upright with a very large elastic band. Then flattened out eight nappies to go round the rolls. I had ribbon left over from their wedding so that went round the outside, stuck in place with some double sided tape just on the two ends and finished up with a double bow. And of course, the sweetest cuddly rabbit to go on the top.
This is the bottom layer, made the same as the top. But with after eights as a treat for mum.
This is the finished nappy cake, I just need to cover everything with cellophane, bows and tags but I didn't think a photo would show it very well. I am quite chuffed with my first effort, I hope you like it too.
