As you might figure out, a towel cake is made from towels and is created to look like a cake.

A diaper cake is made from diapers and is created to look like a cake.

How do you make a fake cake with towels?

Blue/White 2 Tier Towel CakeBlue/White 2 Tier Towel Cake $50.00 + Shipping

A towel cake has simple "ingredients". It will be "baked" with bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths and bath products. Depending on what you want to spend on building one, it could contain all of the above.

To begin with, rolling the towels is an art. It looks easy to do, but getting the right consistency is the key. Not too tight, not too loose.

That is basically all it takes to create the layers. You may choose to use hand towels for the middle layer and wash cloths for the top layer. You can make it as many layers as you want to.

Decorate it as you wish making sure it is color coordinated and professional looking. It will need to look magnificent because it will be a reflection of what you are as an artist.

Adding bath products in the middle of the rolls is a nice surprise when the recipient takes it apart. A fake wedding cake makes a beautiful centerpiece for the bride or groom's table.

How do you make a diaper cake?

SOLD- can be recreated

Making a diaper cake can be done in at least two different ways. One is to roll the diapers and the other is to layer them into a wheel.

When using the candle style, each individual diaper is rolled and secured with a small rubber band or ribbon. Stacking them can be quite tricky and you may need to have extra help holding them in place until secured.

Layering them into a wheel is easier, but it will need to be spaced evenly to make it look professional. Each diaper needs to be turned the same way and not layered too tight or too loose.

The wheel is then secured with a rubber band or ribbon and it can be as big as you want it to be. Your second layer is a wheel smaller than the first. The top layer will need to be much smaller if you want to make a 3 tier diaper cake.

Once you have all the layers in place, decorating the cake is where your creativity comes in. It is the life of the fake cake. You can top it with anything. Stuffed animals, toys or baby products work great! This makes a great baby shower diaper cake centerpiece.

How do you make a blanket cake?

OK, now that you know how to make a towel cake and a diaper cake, let's look at a blanket cake.

It is the same principle as the towel cake only you are using blankets in place of the towels and it can be quite beautiful, not to mention very useful.

The middle can contain anything you want to put in it. From pillow cases, to sheet sets, to body or bath products. The possibilities are endless.

If you are making one for someone in particular, use colors that they request. Pleasing the recipient is the most important part of making any homemade gift.

This picture is a teal towel cake with a blanket for the top layer. It is decorated with ribbon, tulle, flowers and stringed beads.

It also includes a Burt's Bees candle, Simple Truth hand lotion, Simple Truth hand soap and a large bath pouf on the top.

The towels are regular sized bath towels and the blanket is 50" x 60".

Not only is this a beautiful fake cake, but it is very useful and practical.

The "ingredients" are arranged together to make a gorgeous centerpiece for a wedding shower or just as a wedding gift.

It can also be used as a bathroom decoration until it is ready to be used.

How do we make a gift basket?

Red/Gold Kitchen Gift BasketRed/Gold Kitchen Gift Basket $40.00 + Shipping

When you order a gift basket from Fake Cakes, you are not just getting a gift basket, you are getting a GIFT BASKET! Handmade, not prepackaged. Ours are created, not just made up to look pretty.

Let's look at how we make a gift basket. When you've decided on the type of gift basket you want, we go shopping! Gather all the items you want to add, find the perfect container to put it all in, match the ribbon to the items and finish it up with some accessories.

Arranging all the items in the container to where the tallest items are to the back makes it look even better. We keep adding until all the items are in there making sure to make it is appealing and easy to see each item. We may stack some things or fill in the empty areas with tulle or other decorative items.

Your gift basket will look like a gorgeous art piece when we are done with it. We strive for perfection when creating a gift basket. It takes about 2 - 3 hours to complete it once we have all your requested ingredients.

Gift baskets are made with items of the theme you are needing. For example, a kitchen gift basket, like the one in the photo, may include a basket or other container layered with kitchen towels, kitchen utensils, oven mitts, pot holders, dish cloths or other kitchen gadgets.

A bath gift basket may include a usable container for the bathroom, towel, hand towel, bath products, shower curtain, bath mat or other usable bath accessories.

A child's gift basket may include a usable container, age appropriate toys, stuffed animal, themed items, blanket, games or other children's items.
