What do you do when one of your favorite nieces announces she is getting married? If you are me (Danetta), you start to plan a bridal shower!! You will be seeing the full shower later this week, but for now, I get to show you this fun Bridal Shower Gift Idea. We made her a cake using towels and washcloths and it turned out awesome. And more importantly, my niece loved it so much! This Bridal Shower Gift Cake was a fun addition to the bridal shower and definitely stole the show on the gift table!
Bridal Shower Gift Idea-Towel Cake:
This turned out so amazing, and was fun to put together. We even found a fun way to use it for one of the bridal shower games. Check this game out!
Supplies Needed For the Basic Cake:
- 4 Bath Towels
- 4 Hand Towels
- 2-3 Wash Clothes
Supplies Needed For the Cake Embellishments:
- Any Kitchen Utensils
- Ice Cream Scoops
- Can Opener
- You Can Get Super Creative With This Part!!
How to Make:
The bottom layer will be the largest and you will use the bath towels for that layer. The middle layer will be the hand towels. The top layer will be the wash clothes. Start by folding the towels in thirds and laying them out flat. Start rolling one towel at a time, linking the towels together at the ends. Make sure to start rolling the next towel into the roll as you come to the end (see picture below).
Once your 4 towels are rolled together you will hold them in place by tying a ribbon around the middle of the bundle. Tie a knot at the back of the towel roll. Repeat this step for the top and middle layers.
For the top layer, gather a few of the utensils and bundle them together. Once they are arranged the way you like, start wrapping your washcloths (also folded in thirds) around the bottom of the utensils. Wrap 2-3 washcloths around until you get the desired width for the top layer. Finish it off by tying a ribbon around it.
Doesn’t this make a fantastic cake topper?
Stack the layers on top of each other and start adding your embellishments to the cake. Simply push the items in between the towels until they are sturdy.
Have FUN giving bridal shower gifts!!
