Looking for a cute and inexpensive baby shower gift? This clever "cupcake" idea is a creative and inexpensive way to give useful items to the mom-to-be.

It is very similar to the towel cake, but this simplified version only uses one towel for it's layer.

"I was on a budget but wanted to give a cute gift for twins, so I decided to do a cupcake made from towels. I saw the idea on a couple of other websites and thought it was pretty cute."

To make your own Towel Cupcake, you will need...

Assembly Directions

Assemble the cupcake by laying the hooded towel on a flat surface with the points in a diamond shape. The hooded portion of the towel will at the top of the diamond shape and facing downward.

Start at the bottom point and roll the towel upwards, towards the hooded section in a jelly roll style.

Then roll the towel from one side to the other.

You should end up with the hooded towel in the front and the rest of the rolled section right behind it. Tuck in the outside edge of the roll behind the hooded section and pin in place with safety pins.
