I created this Diaper Cake for my daughter and the birth of her twin boys. This was my first attempt at making a diaper cake, but was excited to try it and had a lot of fun doing it. I used 1 and 3 size diapers. I used rubber bands and thin ribbon to roll and bind the diapers together. I then wrapped a baby themed ribbon around the outside of the tiers. I used a box of wipes in the middle to set up a support for the cake, and a bottle of baby shampoo on the second tier.
The cake has a variety of things on it, bibs, wash cloths, pacifiers, rattles, teethers, spoons, toys, some misc. decorations and a stuffed dog on top, with a bow.
Everyone loved the cake especially my daughter. My boss was so impressed she asked me to make one for her daughter's baby shower and her daughter wouldn’t take it apart for the longest time.
My 16 yr old daughter made this diaper cake for my son and daughter in law for baby shower gift. It contains 275 newborn and size 1 disposable diapers. She wrapped pink and chocolate brown polka dot ribbon at the base of each tier then added bright pink tulle. The cake topper was a letter “A” that she painted hot pink that can be later used to hang on the wall of the nursery. It took several hours of work rolling each diaper but it was well worth the effort to see the reaction of everyone at the baby shower and it was a huge hit with the new mommy and daddy. The finished product was way to pretty to think about taking apart. We incorporated the diaper cake into a shower game to guess just how many diapers were in the cake. Everyone was shocked to find that it had 275 diapers.
For this diaper cake I used one pack of diapers, a tall plastic clear canister with a lid, rubber bands or pretty hair ties, yarn, ribbon and silk flowers. I rolled each diaper and put a rubber band to hold it.
I got my tall plastic clear canister and filled it with baby stuff like creams, baby hair brush, Q-tips etc. Then I started putting the diapers around the canister. I used the yarn to tie them around the canister.
For the bottom you can do two to three rows. Then I did the same for the top. I wrapped pretty ribbon around to hide the yarn and rubber bands. I added flowers to the top to hide the canister top and then added more flowers to the sides to make it look pretty. The mommy loved it.
I got a large pack of diapers, ribbon, rubber bands, silk flowers, and yarn to make this diaper cake. I rolled each diaper and put a rubber band to hold it. After that, I started putting them together. I put four together and then tied yarn around them. Then I put more around them and tied it again until in made the base of my cake.
Then I did the same for the top but made it smaller. I wrapped pretty ribbon around the sides to hide the yarn and the rubber bands. The top is done with animal print paper that we used for the invitations. I rolled them up and stuck them in the top. Added flowers and two Dragon fly's that someone made for me.
This diaper cake was assembled the same as my other one on this site (#34). It was made for the daughter/niece of dear friends. It contains the following:
136 Pamper's Swaddlers size 1 diapers 1 large baby powder (inside) 1 plastic 40z bottle filled with Starburst (inside) 2 pair shoes 6 pair socks 12 or so little girl clip hair bows 3 caps 5 onesies (in body of cake in place of diapers) 2 rattles 1 teether 1 musical pull toy 1 comb & brush set 2 pacifiers & pacifier clip 1 ring toy
These are lots of fun to assemble and can't wait to do another one.
