Wrap sheer ribbon around center of cake,  secure overlapping ribbon  with hot glue. Use 2-3 pieces of rafia the way you would ribbon, wrap around cake, tying a bow in front.  If your bow will not stay straight (some rafia is stiff and doesn’t lay as nicely as ribbon) secure with a dot or two of hot glue.

Fall Baby Shower Diaper Cake – Creating the Plate

Tuck silk leaves randomly throughout between rafia and wide ribbon. To create the base I used a plastic plate from a 4 pack. Run a thin line of hot glue a few inches at a time about 1/8” from the edge of plate, press the stem end of leaves into glue, continue all the way around. Place beneath cake form.

For the topper I simply bought the pre-decorated pumpkin from my local dollar store and hot glued it to the cap of bottle of baby lotion stuck in the top layer.

  1. This is a very good idea. It will keep the party light and memorable for the mom to be. Diapers are not easy to change. It was the worst part for me. Specially when the baby starts to grow up than it becomes more hard. I am sure this idea would be loved by every woman. At-least i would have preferred it in my time.
