Boutique diaper cakes are one of the most popular styles of cakes to give as a baby shower gift. Why? Because they are so EASY to make and EASY to take apart once the mom-to-be needs them.

Not only is the swirl pattern so darn cute, but it also requires very little supplies to hold it together. Making it both fun to give and fun to recieve. Ready to make it? Let's go!

Start fanning the diapers out, while pressing them against the edge of the pan for stability. The top of the diapers will be facing inward. This will give a clean look to the outside.

Continue to add diapers in small sections and fan them out as you add them.

When you finish fanning out the diapers, go back and make sure they are all spaced evenly. Press the diapers to the outside so there is a hole in the middle.

Now the fun part. Time to decorate! Use ribbon, baby items, toys, flowers, stuffed animals, etc to decorate your diaper cake.

For this cake, I decorated it for a neighbor who was having her first boy after 5 girls! They are big sports fans so I highlighted their favorite football team, The Atlanta Falcons.
