Tricycle Diaper Cake Tutorial
With the green light to proceed, I went shopping. I picked up a pack of size 1 diapers, 2 blue receiving blankets, a pair of blue baby socks, 2 blue bibs, a bottle and some ribbon.
I saw some pictures online showing people using a cake pan to form rounds of diapers. So I tried that and it worked great! I used a regular 8 inch pan and 20 diapers to make each tire. I added one at a time, overlapping about an inch.
Next I rolled the receiving blankets. One of them I added a long piece of yarn down the center before rolling. I fed that blanket through two of the tires, the back of the third (front) tire goes between the back two. I strung the yarn through the front tire, effectively completing a circle. I pulled each end of the string up on top of the front tire, tied a knot to secure the three tires together. Then I shortened the tails of the knot.
