Newborn Gift Cake

The ultimate gift for a Mummy and Daddy to be! So easy to make up, all it takes is time.

I asked all the baby shower guests to contribute £5, instead of buying individual presents so that we could present an enormous supply cake! Everything they could possibly need for the first month and more, all in a giant tower.

I used a hat box to give the cake strength and shape and a bee print seamless scarf, that Mum spied, to hold the nappies in place. Start by placing the scarf around the hat box then stuff your nappies inside in a concertina fashion. For the next layer we used mini elastic bands and rolled the nappies into tight bundles.

We used a large elastic band to hold the round shape and then stuffed the inside with baby wipes and then added another tier of creams, potions and lotions. One of my sisters very lovely friends helped me put it together and I'll be sharing her pom pom talents next week. By the time it had done two journeys the middle tier had fanned out but that looked even nicer.

Can you think of anything we might have missed?! There is still time, although I reckon she will pop this week! She looked fit to burst in Southbourne!
