Towel Cake Tutorial

towel cake tutorial
Above is a towel cake that I made for a friend a couple of months ago. I also made Towel Cupcakes too!

I have seen many examples of these and also a couple of tutorials on how to make these. I looked around at a few different options and then just came up with my own design by using what I already had around the house for the decorations.

To make the large towel cake, I bought the towels from a local department store, going for bright colours. I then bought a couple of ribbons to match from the local craft shop. I already had a couple of bows and bead decorations in the house.

For the small towel cupcakes, I bought some ramekin dishes and some bright coloured facecloths. As mentioned before, I already had some bows in the house for these. To finish all the completed Towel Cakes I needed the clear plastic wrappingl. I bought this from the local florist by the metre.

I was quite pleased with my first attempt at these, my friend said that she had never seen these before!

Here is a link showing you what you need and how to make one of the large towel cakes.

Here is a link to a towel cupcake tutorial:

If you are interested in making these for a housewarming or baby shower present, it is worth having a search through online photographs to get some inspiration. They really aren't that hard to make, you should give it a try.


  1. This is awesome. I would love to make one of these as a gift. Thanks for the post

  3. Great idea for a baby shower gift! I've used baby towels to make a candy basket for a shower, but I'll have to try this too.
