Post may contain affiliate links. Hello Nesties, do you love everything that’s pink, lavender, and topped with exploding sprakles? Well, I think you are going to enjoy my newest tutorial then! as usual, it’s over the top and is the “girl version” of my cloth diaper tricycle cake. All you need to do is follow my step-by-step tutorial and you will have the most adorable baby shower gift EVER! I searched the internet a long time looking for a cloth diaper cake tricycle tutorial and found none, although there were plenty of disposable cake tutorials. That is when I decided to create my own and share. After a few months of gathering supplies and testing, I created a bad boy and princess bear tricycle. This little princess will help any new mom jumpstart her cloth diapering stash with elegance and grace!
Cloth Diaper Supplies
Ok, so I am not going to lie… this is a big, expensive, and very involved diaper cake to make but it’s very doable! The price of making this diaper tricycle is going to cost you anywhere from $150.00 to $200.00 depending on where you get your supplies and if you already have some of the items around the house. You can go in with a friend or two to cut costs and even make the cake together. Just try not to drink at the same time or you might end up with something completely different than what I am going to show you! For your convenience, I have hyperlinked in green a few of the supplies that are on Amazon. I do make a small commission if you actually purchase any of the supplies through my link and it’s no additional cost to you. And when I say small I mean it’s so small it’s actually kind of pathetic … but hey, every penny counts right?
