I apologize in advance for the horrific quality of these cell phone pictures. I forgot my camera when I went to Kaitlin’s for craft night…
You know those diaper cakes that are really popular? Well you can really take anything and make it into a “cake” as long as you have a decent base. My friend Kaitlin and I created a kitchen themed cake for a recent wedding shower we attended. We used all items from the wedding registry and then picked up a cake stand to carry it on.
We used dish towels, a table runner, measuring cups, measuring spoons, serving spoons and spatulas. Kaitlin had this piece of styrofoam that had a circle cut out of the middle. We used that and just rounded the corners of it to make the entire thing a circle (it was a square).
We then wrapped it with one of the dish towels and pinned it with sewing pins in the back to hold it in place. We rolled up the long table runner, put a rubber band around it and wedged it into the styrofoam hole.
We then just made it up as we went along. We rolled the rest of the dish towels and rested them on the styrofoam to make the second “layer” in the cake. At this point we had three layers, the bottom covered in a dish towel, the middle with rolled dish towels and the top which was the table runner.
After we had the layers together we sporadically placed the other items. We added a few ribbons, some seashells and starfish and a giant diamond ring at the top.
It was adorable. And I will say we were totally proud of ourselves because we had no clue how this thing was going to end up.
Definitely adds a fun twist to a gift!
