How to Make a Diaper Cake by Antrelle Banks

Hello Blog World! Today we are talking diaper cakes. I’ve made plenty of these for baby shower gifts and wanted to share my process with you.
1.  Buy supplies including plain diapers (minimal patterns) in infant or generally small sizes, rubber bands, ribbon and accents items (baby swag i.e. lotion, socks, pacifiers, powder toys).

2.  Roll each diaper from top to bottom and secure with a rubber band. If you're making:
  • 3-tier cake you will need about 80-90 diapers total (less if you stuff it with surprises such as onesies or wash cloths)
  • 2-tier cake you will need 60- 70 diapers

3. Create your base by standing rolled diapers in a circular pattern then securing with a large rubber band. You can also use baby bottles in the center to make your base.

4. Create your remaining tiers the same way (repeat step #3) with less diapers.

5. Hide rubber bands on all tiers by adding a layer of ribbon around the center (the ribbon should be centered vertically).

6. Stack tiers with the largest on bottom continuing in size order until the smallest is on top.

7. Secure the cake tiers by inserting dowels (unless you used baby bottles in the center).

8. Add additional accent items (baby swag) to the cake tops and sides.

9. If you're giving as a gift you can wrap the cake in cellophane and tie with a ribbon (Tip: place the cellophane under your first layer to get the appropriate size then leave in place so you don’t have to move your cake for wrapping).
