I'm gonna mess with it tonight and tomorrow with my mom....she's creative. I'll post whatever I come up with.

It looks super cute. I make diaper cakes for showers too - they are so easy.

 

One tip (not for this time because your cake is already built): Rather than rolling each diaper and tying it, just line the diapers up and kinda form them into a circle. I use 1/4 inch elastic and tie it around the outside of each layer. They you can sort of play with it until you get the shape you want. You get more diapers in the cake and the person who gets it doesn't have to untie each diaper to use them.

Here is an example because my instructions suck.

I tried doing it that way...but I didn't like the way it was turning out. And I REALLY like the rolled up diapers....I had one given to me that was like you described and the person tapped all the diapers and it was a pain to take all that tape off...the ribbon they just cut off when they are ready to use the diaper. I don't know....to each their own I guess.
