If you’ve been invited to a baby shower and want to bring a creative yet useful gift, bring a diaper cake. Making a diaper cake will take less time than an edible cake, and will stay fresh until the new baby arrives.
Follow these simple steps to make your own diaper cake. Even if you’ve never turned on an oven in your life, you’ll find a diaper cake is as easy as pie!
Diapers – A LOT of them
Thick decorative ribbon
Baby toys/socks/baby items that you can add on
Start by rolling a single diaper into a small roll.
Wrap a rubber band around the roll
Then start wrapping the diapers around it. Use a frying fan or cake pan to get an estimate of size and just keep wrapping more and more together until it gets to the size you want.
Add rubber bands if it starts to get loose to keep it all secure.
Once you have reached the size you want, use your string or ribbon to secure all the diapers together.
Either tie your decorative ribbon or secure the ends with hot glue around the diaper cake.
Repeat the process with a smaller size layer and place it on top.
Once more with the smallest layer to make it a triple layer cake. once all your layers are set, start sticking the toys and baby items in the cake using either the ribbon to secure them or tuck them into the diapers themselves.
These diaper cakes are quite beautiful and the new parents will appreciate it so much!
