I started out by folding each diaper in half and grouping them in fives, and securing them with a rubber band. The first tier of my cake has 45 diapers 3 rows each with 15 diapers in it. Each row of 15 I wrapped a piece of ribbon around it and secured the ribbon using the hot glue gun. Be sure not to get any of the glue on the diapers so the mother is able to use them. With the second tier I used 20 diapers 2 rows both containing 10 diapes. Wrapping them with ribbon like i did with the first row. The third tier was simple made up of one row of 5 diapers, again wrapping them with ribbon. when i was finished i glued the third tier to the second tier remebering not to get glue on the diapers i had glued the ribbons together and then likewise with the second and first tier. After getting the basic part of the cake up I garnished it with My stuffed animals, travel kit, and outfit.
This is my first diaper cake and after the sucess of this one Im thinking about making them more often for babyshowers. I had a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Everyone I know likes using Huggie diapers which all have prints on them and I really don't like the diapers exposed so I go with the theme of the shower and made a Ladybug Diaper Cake. Wrap the layers in fabric, add the gifts and some crinkled basket stuffing and it's done.
I rolled the diapers and used the small elastics to band them. I used a tall wooden spoon for the center to keep layers centered...and that's it
This is my first diaper cake I've always thought they were so cute! also worked great for a centerpiece on the gift table. For the cake I used 96 diapers all together & on the inside I put a bottle of baby lotion,baby wash,travel Q-tips,and for the topper I used baby wash cloths with a small travel size powder to help keep the wash cloths together.

This is a diaper cake made for my sister for her new baby girl. We used brown and pink fabric to cover 40 diapers in three tiers. Then we have bows and ribbons attached to the cake. We added small pink flowers and a brown and pink butterfly on top.
