Tiered Towel Cake Tutorial
The newest rage for showers and housewarming parties are towel cakes. These are a set of towels, rolled and attached to look like a beautiful cake.
It doubles both as a gift, and as a decorative for the festivities. Not to mention it saves you a little moola and time since there is no need for boxes or wrapping paper.
Here’s how you can create your own towel cake:
1. Select two regular-sized bath towels. Fold them both in half twice, the long way. It should appear similar to the towel on the left in the photo below.
2. Use safety pins to attach them together by the ends. Roll the towels up so that it becomes your bottom cake tier. If you need to, you can secure the loose end to the roll by using more safety pins.
4. Now repeat with some matching washcloths. Fold them…
Tip: Not all towels are created the same size. This can prevent the sizes of the towel roll from coordinating with one another. If this is the case, try initially folding the towels into thirds or some other way that makes it work. Also, rolling the towels tightly makes a thinner roll, while rolling them loosely easily fattens it up.
Just don’t let anyone try to eat it!
