How to Make a Monkey Diaper Cake

Save

If you're planning a baby shower for your friends, putting together a monkey diaper cake can make for a striking centerpiece for the gift table. You have the dramatic look of a multiple-tier cake, as well as the fun of a monkey theme, and your friend has a week's worth of diapers to start out with her new little one.

Things You'll Need

  • Diapers (size 1 or 2)
  • Ribbon
  • Beads and other decorative items
  • Stuffed monkey
  • Double-sided tape
  • Metal or plastic base
  • Baby bottles
  • Clear rubber bands
  • Open the package of diapers -- you'll need at least 50 total -- and roll each into a scroll. Put a clear rubber band around each one. If the diapers have a decorative theme, place that side on the outside or the inside, if you want the "cake" to be white.

  • Set the baby bottle in the center of your round base. Arrange the scrolled diapers in a circle around the bottle until you've made a circle that is 1 foot in diameter. Tie your ribbon (preferably an inch or more wide) around the entire layer. Brown should be a dominant color in this ribbon to match the monkey theme.

  • Add a second layer, about 10 inches in diameter, on top of the first. You'll need another bottle to serve as the core piece and to tie the diapers together with a ribbon. Finally, place a ring of diapers around a third baby bottle and set this on top as a third layer.

  • Decorate as you see fit. The stuffed monkey can sit on the cake or sit next to it if it's too big. Smaller monkey-related items, banana stickers, palm trees, coconut trees or other items will make your cake the talk of the shower.
