How to make a tricycle diaper cake

1. Make the wheels

Let’s do the 3 wheels by using any round object, depending on the size that you prefer. We can approximately use 20 to 30 diapers for each wheel. 

Wrap these together using some rubber bands. To hold them tightly, you can use some safety pins, and tapes and secure them by wrapping a big ribbon in the middle.

2. Make the driving seat

Add the swaddle blankets. A long string should be rolled inside the first swaddle blanket. In the second swaddle blanket, there’s no string needed inside, just a roll of fabric.

The first rolled swaddle blanket should be threaded into the front wheel and centred. Now you can thread the ends through the wheels on the side, and start from the outside. Secure the strings by pulling them tightly together and securing them with a solid knot to hold them together.

3. Make the driving handle

Thread the second swaddle blanket. Thread it through the wheel from the front. Make it designed as pulled up to look like a driving handle. Add a bottle in the centre as the headlight. Use the third swaddle blanket to cover the seat and the bottle nipple. Secure them with rubber bands, and string and make a big ribbon design.

Now, you can add some baby socks on both sides of your driving handle.

Enjoy the ride! 😎
