I made this one for a baby boy. This diaper cake was an XXL. I used nearly 150 diapers to give to an unwed young mom and it brought tears to her eyes to see all the diapers, booties, mitts, socks and cloths.
My husband's aunt made it, diaper's are forming the layers of cake. Then she decorated the cake with baby items.
I make baby diaper cakes for co-workers, friends and family. I always get wonderful responses from the recipients. Much better than a bag of diapers. The key is HAVE FUN!
This is a smaller version of the cascading boy with the baby's nickname RJ to hang in the nursery. Letters were basic wood letters from Walmart painted with acrylic craft paint in nursery colors.

I made this for my sister's baby shower, she's having a boy. The entire cake cost me $37 to make.
1 pack of Size 2 Diapers (bottom layer)
1 pack size 1 diapers (top two layers)
1 bag of regular rubber bands
three bottles of various baby products (I used shampoo, lotion, powder)
one teether ring
four pacifiers (two for inside the filling, and two hanging from ribbon on the outside)
one brush/comb set
Two rolls of 2 inch ribbon (I used satin, but you could use grosgrain)
two yards of tulle (light blue, since he's a boy)
one pair of baby booties (I got leather moccasin style, but knitted would work too)
One stuffed animal for topper
1 bunch of artificial flowers (optional,I got white)
two cotton hats
Roll diapers up and wrap rubber band around, form in large circle on platform (I used a spare piece of 12x12 floor sample, that I covered in clearance baby blue fabric)Two rows on bottom, so basically make a circle, fill with tall baby stuff them form another circle around the one you just made. Just one layer for the top two. Fill circle with large baby product bottles. Tie bottom layer with ribbon. Same for second layer. For the second layer filling, I used the pacifiers, teether ring, rattle, rectal thermometer,the hats rolled up. Once you finish the second layer you repeat for third, or possibly fourth...that's your decision and it depends on what you stuff in the middle of the 'layers' I did three layers. Then I used a bottle brush stuck down in the back part of the top layer as a brace for the cow I got. Covered it all in tulle, and tied with more of the ribbon. Once You finish assembling the cake, you can work on decorating the outside. I put white artificial flowers in where the layers met, as well as plastic baby blue safety pins, pacifiers, and tucked the brush and comb set in the top layer behind the bow. I also decorated the platform with a "baby on board' sign on one side, and a " I love Mommy" bib on the other as well as tucking booties and socks all the way around the base, forming a border. It came out way better than I had hoped for, and was my first attempt!

This is the 3rd Diaper Cake I have made when a friend or family is having a baby. I thought making her a cake would be more thoughtful than wrapping or bagging a present. Not only are there cute and special gifts on the outside, but there is another surprise in the inside that helps bind the cake together. Enjoy.

It is a precious moments, boy cake, I made this for my sister-in-law to give, after she had been to a baby shower that I gave one as a gift. This was a little difficult since I didn't know the parent's, however every baby is precious, so I chose that theme.
It is a three layered cake made with 72 diapers, the insides of each layer are wrapped roll style and the outside is diapers overlapped to make it look like cake icing. I then tied two burp clothes fan style and placed on top for the topper setting, on top of that is this cute precious moments praying doll, holding a lollipop wash cloth, the stick being a soft tipped spoon. I also placed some samples of soaps, wash clothes folded like rose buds, a bottle, and socks folded a rose buds around the bottom, placed it all on a plate for serving. She said this was the talk of the shower.

This cake was made as the others were. I enjoyed creating this cake with my own ideas and cannot wait to make another one. Be careful, for these cakes can be very addicting.

I made a 4 tier diaper cake, with one big bottle on the bottom full of jelly beans for the surprise later. i held the top to tiers together with another big bottle without the lid to hold the roses. I wrapped each row with "its a boy ribbon. hot glued it to stay, placed some curling ribbon through the hole of the pacifier and tied it to the "its a boy Ribbon" curlded the ribbon and kinda wrapped it around, added a bow made from more blue ribbon it says"lullaby" on it>
I randomly placed 4 blue diaper pins on each row. I added the roses to the top of the bottle and stuck in some green leaves. I made sock and washcloth roses, I believe 13 fit in the top. They are all blue or white. It was easy and very simple design.

I made this diaper cake for my daughter's baby shower! I made this one and my friend made one for a shower she was attending. We had a lot of fun creating them, as one was for a girl and one for a boy! Mine was for Giovanny, my grandson (really for my daughter - she ask). It was a big hit and she loved it. I would suggest using larger sized diapers so the mother-to-be can enjoy the cake for awhile. Also, double stick tape did not work well for me. If you use colored rubber bands it doesn't matter, because you cover them up with ribbon on the layers. Have fun and take pictures to remember your creation! (People will be asking you to make one for them!)

My 3rd diaper cake for my sister-in-law. Her baby's name is Noah and she has a noah's ark nursery. Here is the diaper ark: Filled full of baby items. Many decorations for nursery: animals and wooden letters. Had a blast making this one. Think its my best yet! I really had to think outside the box on this one. Approx 220 diapers.

1. Roll up diapers (used clothes pegs to keep hold)
2.Arrange them in 3 different round circles (hence the 3 tiers). I used some elastic to keep them firmly in place.
3.Tie ribbon around every round tier.
4. Stack all 3 tiers on top of one another (starting with the largest then smallest of course)
5.Use a thin wooden stick to slide through the middle of the cake so that the cake will keep in tact and not fall over.
6. The fun part begins! This is where u get creative! I used stickers, toys, baby lotions/powders to decorate the cake.
7. The base is made out of cardboard, cut out into a circle. Covered in tissue paper.
That's all there is to it! Very fun and simple :)

I had some leftover Jean diapers from buggies and decided to make a diaper cake out of them. I made the diaper cake for a family friend's baby shower. I had a fire truck and police car theme. The color scheme I used was red and blue.
I used 33 diapers (size 3) for a 2 tiered cake. The ingredients I used included: 33 diapers, ribbon, pacifier, 2 sets of toddler utensils, a size 3-6 month button down shirt, 2 wooden decorations and rubber bands. I also used double sided table and hot glue.
First I rolled the diapers and used rubber bands to secure them. I left a view diapers to use to cover the sides of each tier. Once all diapers were rolled. I used a rubber band to secure the diapers for each tier. I then put the tiers together using 2 unsharpened pencils. From there I added the decorations. This was my first diaper cake.

This cake and bassinet was done for a surprise baby shower for my son's teacher. This cake has a lot more than the normal diaper cake, just because the families in the class all chipped in and bought items and or supplied the monies for the items to be bought. Then I created the diaper cake. The cake has a blue stuffed dog that sits on top the top layer. It also has a football pull toy hanging from one side, a bottle brush, 2 soft books, 1 set of socks, 1 pair of shoes, 3 onesis, 5 white wash rags, 1 monkey toy rattle, 3 spoons, 1 bib, 2 pacifiers, 3 teethers, 2 Johnson travel sets (lotions, diaper cream, powder, shampoo), 2 target gift cards, and 150 size one diapers all wrapped in light blue baby boy ribbon.
This was my first bassinet and I am very proud at how it turned out. I used 2 rolled diapers for the wheels and about 6 straight diapers for the bassinet and one open diaper for the top. All are held together with string and ribbon and I put a bib on top to look like a blanket. The cake itself it a 3 tier cake made from rolled diapers tied with string and then ribbon. The tiers are held together with chop sticks. (My own idea, unused of course!)

I had so much fun putting together this It's A Boy Diaper Cake for my new grandson.
2-3 boxes of the smallest size were used in this creation. I had some left over which I kept on hand for when I get to babysit.
What were the ingredients you ask? While shopping at the local Target store, I filled a basket with baby socks and washcloths, which I rolled up to make sock "roses" and used as fillers between some of the diapers to add a nice touch of color.
This diaper cake was built from the inside out, starting with a bottom layer. I purchased 4 cake boards from Michael's Craft store to use as the platform to build each layer of rolled diapers. To hide the edges and add more color, I used a wide satin ribbon at the top of each layer, lapping over the layer above it.
This step also added a bit of stability to the overall LARGE diaper cake. Decorated with a little yellow tulle and a handful of silk leaves, this centerpiece was the talk of the party (other than the baby, of course :-)
