Vroom Vroom Biker Diaper Cake?



IMG_5223
I had a friend from high school as me to make a diaper cake for her. I saw this one on Pinterest and have been dying to make it. It turned out very cute. It is on the spendy side to make, I went to Target and found the items and I didn’t find generic version so it was all the name brand items. PLUS most of the items come in a pack of 3 or 4 when you need 2 so you have left overs. So the cake with the extra’s did cost me $75, which was the budget given so I didn’t get paid to make it … lol. Next time I will plan better but it was a fun item to make and I’m sure if I hit Walmart I could find the items for less.
The site I found the Motorcycle Cake on has a great STEP BY STEP tutorial. I did document step by step in my photos. This was so much easier to make then the normal cake I make where I have to individual diaper wrapped taking me around 3 hours and then another 2 to make the cake. This took me around 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours to make and my little helper Caden had fun helping. At first I was a little frustrated with it but then I got the hang of it, so don’t give up! Click picture to enlarge.
Materials: 34 diapers Pampers Swaddlers Size 1 (17 for each tire), 8" cake pan, 2 rubber bands, 2 receiving blankets, 2 bibs, 1 chain link toy, a pair of socks or mittens, a baby bottle, 1 washcloth, scissors, pins, a stuffed animal, and decorative ribbon.
I made mine a little larger so I used 1 1/2 packs of diapers and 2 chain link toys.

Take half your diapers and fan out in a cake pan to fill the circle. Make sure the gab between each diaper is even. With one hand on top of the diaper, use the other hand to start pulling each diaper to the right until they all are even. Take a rubber band and wrap around your round that will become a tire. Wrap each tire with ribbon of your choice. Place a pin to secure ribbon. The pin will at be the bottom of the tire. Do the same for the other tire. Fold first receiving blanket in half...and roll it up. If you want you can secure the end of the rolled up blanket with a pin just until you place the blanket through the tire opening. Pull both ends of the blanket (following the arrows) to make sure the 2 tires are tight and the blanket too. Not too tight but firm. This will hold your entire motorcycle! Place a pin in the inside of the tire opening securing the 2 blankets against the diapers. Make sure the pin is all the way in! then tuck in the remaining of the 2 ends of the blanket in the opining of the tire. Put a bib on the front tire to look like a fender. Roll up 2nd blank put threw first tire to make handle bars. Pull up to have both ends even and put one or two link toys to secure. Put the bottle in the middle before you push tinker toys down, this will secure and look like a light. You can use a piece of card board in the ends to make them secure. Put tissue paper inside the sock or mittens to fluff them up before you put on the ends of the handle bars. Put the second bib on the back tire for the back finder. Top with a toy of your choice to be your rider.
