DIY Bridal Shower Gift Idea:

- 2-3 Wash Clothes

- Any Kitchen Utensils
- Ice Cream Scoops
- Can Opener

How to Make a Towel Cake:
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 towel 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.

Yes! It was such a hit at our shower!
How do you attach the apron?
Amber & Danetta says
We just sort of stuck it down into the center of the rolled up towel.
Ok great! Thanks!!
nothing is holding the tiers together to each other though
Nope, but it’s super sturdy. And easier to move with the layers that come apart.
