How-to Diaper Cake
It’s shower time again! Which means diaper cake galore. I love making diaper cakes for showers. They’re not only a great gift, but a welcome addition to the shower decor. I normally call the person hosting the shower and ask if I can make a small diaper cake to help out. The hostesses and the lady of honor all appreciate it. This particular shower was Little Gentleman themed, so I made a bowtie cake! Here’s my diaper cake how-to.
This particular shower needed a small diaper cake for the dessert table. So instead of using a champagne bottle as the center (too big) I used a Diaper Genie refill pack. There’s a number of reasons for this. 1. It’s useful. Have you ever run out of diaper pail liners? The worst! 2. It’s the perfect size for a small diaper cake 3. Diaper Genie now has Mommy Time Rewards. Every time you buy or register for Diaper Genie products, you get rewards points. By purchasing this, I get points, as well as the mommy-to-be who registered for them. Double whammy! And the rewards are geared towards pampering mom. Stores like Sephora and Zappos are part of the program.
- Diaper Genie Refill Pack
- 22 Size 1 Diapers
- Fun Cut Outs
- 22 Small Rubber Bands
- 2 Large Rubber Bands
1. To begin your diaper cake, roll each diaper up individually, then wrap with a rubber band to hold in place. Do this for all 22 diapers.
3. For the second layer, use the second large rubber band to hold the remaining diaper together. Place inside the first layer.
4. Tape the toothpicks to the cut outs. Then place the cut outs as you wish on the diaper cake. Have fun with it!
I think diaper cakes are so cute! I love yours!
I love the little bow ties. I think I might give this a shot for a friend of mines baby shower. Thanks for the how to!
I make diaper cakes and I use a bottle of wine to center it all – a treat for the parents on the inside! (but i prefer my cakes to be tall and big!)
I made one for a shower once, but with a little different technique. I do love the idea of using something in the center, because it's like a bonus gift! Mine as just all diapers, but that's smart! And the bow ties are super cute. 🙂
That was clever to use the Diaper Genie as the center. I will have to use that next time.
I've seen these before but never seen how to make one. Great tutorial.
What a great idea and unique spin on the diaper cake! Love it!
Ah you're so creative! Love the diaper cake and I'm sure the mama loved it even more!
I have never made a diaper cake, but I have always wanted too!
Diaper cakes are always so much fun to make! Great tutorial and I LOVE the bow tie theme!!!
So cute! I've always gotten out of making the diaper cake at showers since I usually make the actual cake, but this makes it look pretty easy 🙂
