I had the opportunity last week to make yet another nappy cake - this time for our daughter-in-law who is having their first baby. We don't yet know if the baby is a boy or a girl, so the colour theme of the shower was green and white. I have explained how to make a nappy cake in the past. This is just another example. If you are attending a baby shower, these make a great present for the new parents - and fun to put together too! Really :)
This nappy cake is made with about two and a half packets of newborn Aldi nappies. I like these because the nappies are white, and they have a great reputation for being a good nappy. (Are you not glad to know this? Now, whenever you unwittingly find yourself in the midst of a conversation about nappies (!!) and baby bottoms, you can offer, "I've heard that Aldi nappies are very good..." with happy confidence :)
In the centre of this cake is a large Johnson's Baby Powder. Attached (by out-of-sight masking tape and by tucking objects into the ribbons around the cake), are:
Milgard moisturizing nappy lotion, Johnsons Baby Oil, Johnsons Baby ShampooJohnsons Baby Powder, a large container of cotton buds (under the dog's chin), Curash baby powder, Johnsons Baby Bath liquid soap, a baby brush and comb set, three baby books, three baby rattles, three baby singlets, a baby Big Bird, and a 'Taggy' dog for the top of the cake.
This cake is two-layered, although you can easily make a three-layer cake too, like the one below.
All you need is some nappies, a tray or cardboard support, some ribbons and small gifts, a bit of time, and a teensy bit of creativity. Have fun! :)
