Sweet Diaper Cake

We recently had a baby shower for my sister-in-law, who is expecting their first baby. It's a little girl (according to the ultrasound), and everyone is super excited! I had some diapers in my gift stash left-over from a previous diaper cake so I decided to put them to good use.
A new hooded bath towel, folded into a square and set on a cardboard piece, became the base, and then 3 tiers of rolled diapers, the cake. I found a pack of washcloths on clearance at Wal-mart so I used those to "ice" the cake. Pretty pink ribbons and a little bear finish it off.

In keeping with the diaper/bath theme, I used my Cricut to dress up an ice cream 1/2 gallon storage container to become a diaper wipe holder. (I made homemade baby wipes for both of my kids and saved so much money!!! Not to mention, hurried trips to the store when we ran out of said wipes!)
 Here's the top! Pink and brown to match the nursery. Ladybugs 'cause they're cute!
I tucked a recipe card with directions on how to make homemade wipes along with Baby Magic baby wash into the wipes container. The "cake" went into a gift bag, topped with more pink ribbon! Only a few more weeks before we'll get to meet our sweet niece----can't wait!

Linking up to some of these great parties! Be sure to stop by!
