Next on the diaper cake train was the one I made for the Safari themed party. I thought it would be fun to do a palm tree with a monkey hanging off it. I saw a few different ideas on Diaper Cakes Tampa and More than Favors. I took their ideas and ran with it.
I did my normal diaper cake base that I would do for a 3 tier diaper cake. I rolled each diaper and tied it with ribbon that says "It's a boy" found at the dollar tree. I made one round of diapers to resemble a base (like a round cake). Tied it with a brown ribbon that reminded me of safari themed. I usually am so good at taking step by step pictures but this time I was up until midnight the night before the party and my mind was not on picture taking.
What you Need:
Diapers (around 50 per cake)
Wire Ribbon (to wrap around the base)
thin Ribbon (to wrap around each individual diaper)
Wire Palm Branch
Monkey (with long arms and long legs)
To roll a diaper I start at the fold of the diaper and roll into a tight roll (almost like a cinnamon roll). I tie mine off with ribbon from dollar tree that say "It's a boy (or girl)". You could use a clear small rubber band if you want. Put together around 45/50 rolled diapers in a circle and tie with the wire ribbon this will make your base of the palm tree. I took 3 rolled diapers and pushed them up the wire of the palm branch (this will cover up the wire stem). I found a monkey that had the long arms and legs that I wrapped around one of the tree's.
Do you have any upcoming showers to attend?
