No pregnant woman wants to let her pregnancy go by without marking it in some glamourous ways and these days the UK baby shower party is exploding and is being fully embraced by UK mums to be.
It is now the bigger the better and the baby’s sex reveal is also a new game changer following our counterparts in the USA, the baby shower is also not complete without some fun games (with great prizes), delicious food, and stand-out all elaborate decor of the venue.
But let’s not forget the diaper cake! Whether you want to gift one to the mommy-to-be or put one together as a centrepiece for the party, we’ve got you an easy way of doing this. We’ll show you how to construct a no-bake, easy-to-make diaper cake the other guests will be pretty impressed with. And no, you don’t have to be a crafting wizard or a Pinterest pro to pull it off — they’re easier to put this creation together than you’d think!
First things first, you’ll need a few supplies ready before you start your wonderful work.
8. You’ll need to use both hands to hold the wrapped diapers in place — which means you’ll need an extra pair of hands to place the large rubber band around the wrapped third tier. Once the band is in place, check that there is even spacing between each diaper.
9. Attach the ribbons around the tiers. Rubber bands should be centred in the middle so the ribbons hide them. Tack on the widest ribbon first, then layer the thin ribbon on top. Do the same slim ribbon for the top and bottom tier, a different one for the centre one.
10. After placing the decorative ribbons on the three tiers, it’s time to put the diaper cake together. Carefully place your second tier on top of the first; you might have to move around a diaper here and there so it fits over the baby bottle in the centre of the bottom tier.
11. Take a chopstick or skewer and carefully insert it into the middle of the second tier, leaving part sticking out. Align the centre of the top tier to the top of the stick and slide it down. This holds the tiers together, just as the bottle keeps the bottom and second tiers together.
And voila — you did it! Now give yourself a pat on the back and stroll into that baby shower with pride. You deserve it!
