Nowadays, they have all these fancy diapers, with inserts, that come in all sorts of fancy colors and sizes. My sister-in-law was due at the end of March. She and my brother decided they wanted to use cloth diapers, so they registered for these:

But no one has ever done diaper cupcakes before! Okay, so I finally found one person on etsy who sells diaper shaped fondant cupcake toppers. But that's it. I could not find anything cake-related with diapers. There are the creepy baby cakes where the babies are wearing diapers.

|Cute, but not the taste I was going for.|
So I rolled out some different colored fondant. I eyeballed a T-shape with a knife, then folded it up like a diaper. I made the buttons using tip 12 and the stitching with my roller tool.

Some close ups:

At the time, we didn't know her name.
Elisa is enjoying hers!
Kylie is here now and let me tell you, those huge cloth diapers look very cute on her little bum. Love you Kylie!
