Step 1: Gather materials.
Step 2: Assemble the base. I ended up using a (wrapped up) pizza pan for the base and a canister of wipes for the core. I've also heard of using a large baby bottle in the center.
Step 3: Roll diapers and start placing them around the core. I secured the rolled diapers with rubber bands in the hopes that the diapers can be preserved for later use.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 until the cake takes shape. I had originally planned on creating a 2-tier cake, but once I got those layers in place, the third tier seemed to fit perfectly.
Step 5: Adorn with ribbon. This was actually one of the hardest parts of putting together the cake. Let's just say that the glue gun came in handy!
Step 6: Ribbon #2 for a little extra pop.
Step 7: Ta-da! The finished product.

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.
From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way.
If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.
So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
