A diaper cake is a creative and practical gift for baby showers and new parents. It’s made from rolled diapers stacked and arranged to look like a tiered cake, with the addition of fun baby items such as stuffed animals, bibs, and onesies. Here’s how to make a diaper cake in just a few simple steps.
- Approximately 60 to 80 size 1 diapers
- Rubber bands
- Two or three ribbon colors (for decoration)
- Baby items of your choice (stuffed animal, bibs, onesies, etc.)
Step 1: Roll the Diapers Take each diaper and roll it tightly from the top to the bottom, securing it with a rubber band. Repeat this process until you have rolled all the diapers.
Step 2: Create the Base Tier Start with the largest number of rolled diapers and arrange them in a circle, using rubber bands to hold them together. Make sure the diapers are tightly packed to prevent any gaps.
Step 3: Add the Middle Tier Once the base tier is in place, start adding the next largest number of rolled diapers on top of the first tier. Use rubber bands to secure the diapers in place, making sure to keep them tightly packed.
Step 4: Create the Top Tier Repeat the process for the top tier, using the smallest number of rolled diapers.
Step 5: Decorate the Cake Tie each tier with ribbon, alternating between colors for a fun and colorful look. You can also add baby items such as stuffed animals, bibs, and onesies to decorate the cake and make it more practical.
Step 6: Finishing Touches Once you have decorated the cake, it’s time to add the finishing touches. You can add a card with a special message or wrap the cake in cellophane for a beautiful presentation.
And there you have it! Your very own diaper cake. This practical and creative gift is sure to be a hit at any baby shower or for new parents. Have fun and get creative with the decorations and baby items you add to make your cake unique.
