Desperate Housewife's Inner Martha Rears Her Head

I made a diaper cake for a baby shower I went to on Saturday. It was surprisingly easy. I rolled the diapers and tied them up into the three tiers during "Lost" and "Trailer Park Boys," just an hour and a half. It turned out pretty well.
The baby is an "oopsie," but a happy one. The mommy-to-be, a lady I used to work with, has two daughters in high school... and the baby is due the day before her 44th birthday!

Now that is so cool. Are they cloth or disposable diapers? I have to know how you rolled them. This is crucial info. I really studied the pic to see how it was done, but I'm having a real slow morning, duh. Please give instructions to the slow lady. Thanks DH, have a good day.

Pampers, size one, eighty-three of them. I just rolled them up and put an elastic on each one. If you google "diaper cake" you'll find lots of instructions. It was much easier than I thought it would be. The hardest part was getting the &^%$#@ diapers to stand up while I tied the tiers. I just did a few at a time, and kept adding and tying.
Have a great day, Schell!

My dad was born when his mom was 46. I don't think she ever recovered from the "surprise" and she lived to be over 90. His siblings were in their 20s.

The diaper cake is a great idea!!

I meant to say, also, that I love your cake. It's very cool. Definitely Martha like. Mommy-to-be must have loved it.
