Wedding Towel Cakes are nice and affordable gift options for the wedding and the wedding showers. The towels used can be of many colors: the popular ones being-white, yellow, lavender, cream, pink and red. Bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths are folded to form a round shape and then stacked on the top of each other. The longest or the biggest towel will form the bottom layer and the process goes on consecutively until the top and the smallest tier is reached.
Natural or artificial flowers, monograms, trinkets, ribbons, wedding charms, and a lot more articles add to the beauty of the towel cakes.
Following are the primary requirement for a three-tiered wedding towel cake:
- Towels- bath towels and hand towels
- Wash cloths
- Satin ribbons
- Sharp scissors
- Measuring tapes
- Cake toppers, if any
- Other decors- silk roses or butterflies, daisies, stars, candies, etc.
Take two bath towels. Start folding these towels on their length. One fold should be about 4-5 cm. All folds should be equal and the ends should be even. Do the same with the second towel. Join the ends of these towels with safety pins. Roll this one huge towel that is formed to form a coil. Keep this rolled bunch of towels upright. Tie it with some nice satin or organza ribbon. This forms the bottommost layer of the cake. Repeat the same process with kitchen napkins and hand napkins for the middle and the top layer so that size of these layers reduces.
You can decorate this cake nicely with fresh or silk flowers, fruits or any other decor items of your choice. You need to be able to stuff something inside each layer. You need to be innovative with this. What you can do is when you roll the towels for the bottommost layer, you can roll them on a round kitchen utensil and stuff some candle packs in it. For the middle layer you could wrap it around a box of glasses, mugs or a jug. You can fill this jug with some candies, chocolates, etc. You can wrap a third layer around a mug, small vase, thick candle or a single glass. All these utensils, candles, napkins, towels, etc., would serve as gifts for the bride.
