This coming Saturday is a baby shower for my daughter Vanessa. The theme is "A little pumpkin is on the way!". Her older sister, Beth, asked me to do a Diaper Cake. I've looked at them, but never attempted one. Then Beth asked if maybe I could do it in the shape of a pumpkin!
Several months ago I had purchased a box of Hawaiian Limited Edition Huggie Diapers. Half of the 72 diapers are an orange color and the other half are blue. So, half of the battle - pumpkin color is taken care of. Now, how do do this? I started with a 16" Wilton Cake Separator Plate, 2 spools of orange ribbon (10 ft each), a 13" apple basket, and the diapers. I covered the basket with a plastic bag so that it wouldn't snag any of the diapers and I filled the inside of it with the blue ones to give it some weight. Using the 2 different ribbons, I cut 15" pieces and taped them to the Cake Plate - 6 of the wider ribbon and 6 of the narrow - evenly around.
I added the first layer of diapers on the wider ribbon by laying 3 along the ribbon and then pulling it up and taping it to the top.
