I made this baby as something different from a nappy cake. I was also going to be taking it to an outdoor baby shower in a park and I figured hauling a cake across carparks, stairs, water play toys and along paths was just not going to go well. So I thought a baby would be better.
Now I can't take full credit for this idea as I happened apon some on the internet. Apparently they've been around a while, some creative genius thought of it and I'm happy that by looking at some pictures I managed to quite easily make my own.
There are three rolls of nappies for the head and body and then I fashioned arms and legs from 2 nappies a piece. It's all held together with strong rubberbands because I didn't want to damage any of the nappies so they could be used in the future. The clothes are gender neutral as we didn't no whether the mother was having a boy or girl.
Both Mother-to-be's were delighted with their babies. The first mother actually staged a family photo with hers and the second baby is already tucked into bed in his/her new home! I can't wait to make more babies!!
