Diaper Cake Delight

Multiple-choice question: the diaper cake is:

  • baby shower invitations(a) A hand-crafted tower of baby diapers adorned with ornamental ribbon and baby items.
  • (b) A highly-functional yet attractive baby shower gift that can be thoughtfully customized for the new baby.
  • (c) A unique centerpiece for the baby shower table that is sure to impress.
  • (d) All of the above.

The answer, of course, is (d) all of the above. The diaper cake is a delightful and original gift offered by numerous online sites with a variety of styles and additional customization options. However, if you have a little Martha Stewart and a lot of patience inside, consider making your own diaper cake for a fraction of the cost and the opportunity to create a highly personal and memorable gift.

The materials list for the most basic diaper cake is quite simple:

    • 1 – 2 cartons of disposable diapers depending on size (a 3-tier cake requires approximately 50 newborn size diapers).
    • A tray, cake stand, or cutout cardboard base
    • Decorative ribbon and small items such as a pacifier, rattle, brush, booties or teddy bear.
    • Rubber bands and a cardboard tube for construction.
