How To Make A Nappy Cake

The fabulous Snaffles Mummy has put together this great slideshow on how to make a Nappy Cake!

Nappy cakes make fantastic gifts for new or expectant mums. They are ideal for gifts from co-workers, for baby showers or on the birth of the baby. 

The main part of the "cake" consists of nappies and the outside is decorated with useful baby related items either in a neutral colour or one to suit the sex of the baby. 

I love the fact that every part of a nappy cake is something needed and used by babies.

Here is my "How To" Guide to making a Nappy Cake.

You will need;

  • 2 bottles of toiletries either for the baby or mum
  • 69 nappies (if you want mum to be to be able to keep the cake to admire for longer then use size 2 nappies)
  • lots of elastic bands
  • safety pins
  • 2 muslin cloths
  • 1 hooded  baby towel
  • 1 soft toy
  • socks/mittens/booties/stickers to suit (optional)
  • Ribbon (optional)

You can adapt this in many different ways. You can have more or less "tiers" to the cake and experiment with different ways of decorating it.
