Hey there. My name is Alison, and today I'm going to share how to create this gorgeous princess castle diaper cake for a princess themed baby shower. Here's what you'll need. First, fold the diaper in half so that the waistband strip is on the inside. Repeat with a second diaper. Stack the diapers side by side with the closed side facing the opposite way of the other diaper. Continue to stack the diapers in this fashion, remembering to alternate the open side and closed side. This is the key to creating an even row. Otherwise, one side will be thicker than the other. Continue until you've lined up fifteen diapers in one row. Secure with a large rubber band. Repeat twice more until you have three rows of fifteen diapers. Place on top of the cardboard which I wrapped in gift wrap to match the color scheme. This creates the bottom layer of your cake. To create the second layer, I use twelve diapers for each row and created a total of two rows. Add or take away diapers as needed. For the top layer, I used the same stacking method and used eight diapers. Now it's time to start decorating. Wrap each layer with wide ribbon horizontally to hold all the rows together. Secure the ribbon ends with hot glue. Repeat on each layer, and add your smaller ribbon to create a layered look. It's time to create the turrets. Start with eight diapers and eight skewers. Roll the diaper after placing the skewer in the center. Secure the rolled diaper with a rubber band. Repeat so that you have eight turrets total. Now, wrap the diaper with your ribbons. To create the turret roofs, cut your scrapbook paper into semicircles. Bend the paper into a cone shape gluing the edges together. Leave a hole at the top big enough to fit a straw. These should fit on top of each turret. Now, let's make the final turret to sit at the tippy-top of the cake. Roll up three diapers and cluster them together. Secure with a rubber band. Wrap the turret with your ribbons. Then stick a skewer in the middle of the cluster. Create a paper cone large enough to fit the top. Next I will make these cute flags using this easy template that you can download at the end of this video. First, cut out the diamond shape. Wrap the center around a straw, and close the ends with hot glue. Finally, it's time to secure the turrets to the castle. This is where the wooden skewers come in. Place each turret around the diaper castle by carefully slotting the bottom half of the skewer into the diaper structure holding the turrets in place. Insert a straw into the top of each cone and fit the cone snugly on top of each turret so that the straw sticks out of the top of the cone like a flagpole. For the finishing touches, I added pink pacifiers and glued a pretty bow on top. And there you have it. From a fantasy centerpiece to a useful gift, your mom-to-be will appreciate this when it comes time to Pamper her princess.
