How to Make a Diaper Cake for Baby Showers?

It can be challenging to find a gift for a baby shower, but you always try to give something special that can be remembered for a long time. You can easily turn toys and blankets into something magical. The diaper cake can be easily made. It will bring a smile on the face of the mother, and she can use it for months. Follow the below-given practice to create a masterpiece. 

  • Do A Little Shopping
  • Before constructing a masterpiece, you will have to do a little shopping to buy some essential items. For your diaper cake, first of all, choose size 2 diapers because newborn babies rarely wear the newborn size or step 1 size diapers. To make your cake look beautiful and colorful, buy blankets and washcloths in different colors and shades. To make it more attractive, you can use a stuffed animal or special toy on the top of a cake. If you want to decorate it more, then you can use bottles of shampoo, teething rings, and rattles. So look at the complete list of shopping. 

    • Thick cardboard
    • Teething blankets or washcloths
    • 50-60 diapers
    • Normal and large size rubber bands
    • Double-sided tape
    • 2-inch wide ribbon
    • Toys or stuffed animals for cake decoration.

    After doing shopping, now it’s time to move towards the next step. 

  • Let’s Start Rolling
  • Now, start rolling diapers starting from the crotch up to the waistband. Wrap a rubber band around the center to make them secure. It will look beautiful when you have finished. It will look like mundane. Now, start rolling washcloths and secure them in the same way as you have done for the diapers. You can use them as a top tier, and it will make your diaper cake look fancier than before. 

  • Layering The Cake
  • For the first tier, you can start by standing a paper tower roll. Now, surround it with diapers, and you will feel that diapers look like a pillar. Similarly, place the second and third circles of diapers around the first. How can you hold the diapers together? Wait, you have purchased large rubber bands for this purpose. You can use 36 diapers for this tier. Your diaper cake wouldn’t look fancy, and you can make it adorable by covering the rubber band with a wide ribbon.

    Now, you have to place this tier over the cardboard and draw a circle around it. To give a strong base to diaper cake, you can cut the circle and place the first tier on top of it. It will enable you to transport the cake easily. 

    You can make a middle layer by creating a second tier that is smaller than the first, and for this layer, you have to use only 18 diapers. Secure the second tier with a large rubber band. Keep going, and it will give you a look at a cake. Now, it’s time to place washcloths over the second tier. Place one washcloth in the center and surround it with the other six. You can make it more attractive by showing your creativity and altering the colors. To make them secure, wash the third rubber band around the washcloths. To secure tiers into one another, slide the pencil in the top and second tier. 

  • Final Flourishes
  • Is it looking like a cake? If still not, don’t worry, you are just one step away. Wrap the ribbon over the large rubber bands. Use double-sided tape and secure all the tiers. For a final flourish, use toys or stuffed animals on top of the cake. You can place favorite baby toys on top of the cake. You can keep this diaper cake for your baby or gift it to someone else. 



    So, what is the point of diaper cakes? It is the question that is frequently asked by people. When you can gift a diaper pack or box to someone, then why you want diaper cakes.
