Tricycle Diaper Cake
Tricycle Diaper Cake! What is a Diaper Cake?
The introduction of the Diaper Cake has become extremely popular in recent years. But what is a Diaper Cake? It is not edible! It is a decoration often used as centerpiece at Baby Showers! It looks like a tricycle but mainly consists of disposable diapers! A tricycle diaper cake is a gorgeous baby shower centerpiece. It will definitely give your baby shower the WOW factor!
Tricycle Diaper Cake - Basic Concept!
Instructions are relatively easy to follow making it simple to make your own tricycle cake from diapers! Basically the directions and instructions detail using disposable diapers which are rolled up and then wrapped around each other in a circular pattern to form the wheels. Satin ribbon is then wrapped around each wheel and each wheel is finished with a satin ribbon bow. Diaper safety pins are then hung from the top of each small wheel. The wheels are attached together with wire to form the tricycle shape. The tricycle diaper cake is then finished off by using wash cloths for handlebars and hanging a pacifier from the middle of the handle bars. Attaching curling ribbon to the handle bars and on top of the handle bar in the middle completes the fantastic tricycle diaper cake.
