Learn How To Make Diaper Cakes -
Easy Photos and Tips
Welcome to our HALL OF FAME for diaper cakes! This section of the website is dedicated to our dear overachiever friends.
The average diaper cake is a 3 tier cake. But this section is not average. It is for those people who love to go all out and make the biggest, baddest, best diaper cake around.
This section I have named "above and beyond" for the talented artists who have created 5 tier and above cakes.
So, I have dedicated this hall of fame section to our dear overachiever friends. And yes, they are the best!

I tried a new technique when creating this tiered cake. Instead of just using string like I usually do, I used rubber bands to hold each rolled diaper together and then tied them all together with string. It was SO much easier that way, especially for such a large cake. I used about 250 size 1 diapers total. The decorations are tulle, satin & curling ribbon, and 'it's a boy' decoration sprinkles (non-edible). The frosting is made of soft string. The cake itself comes apart into three separate pieces, the bottom layer, the stand, and then the top layer. I usually place hidden items in the middle, but since it was for my own baby shower, I skipped that part!
This cake was made for my daughters favorite 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Frudden. This Cake is made of about 170 Size 1 diapers. It has 5 Tiers held together with an empty wrapping paper roll. Ribbons were tied around to cover the rubber bands. Baby items such as teething rings, rattles, nail clipper, medicine dropper, fork & spoons, comb & brush etc were attached with curling ribbon. A teddy bear was used as a cake topper then it was wrapped with clear wrap & more curling ribbon and a platter was cut out of the box from the diapers.
I've recently started making diaper cakes for friends and to sell. This is the most extreme diaper cake I've ever made for a friend's shower.... 7 tiers, 1 meter tall, 101 diapers, 1 blanket, 2 onesies, 2 pacifiers, 2 paci clips, 8 toy trucks, a book, 5 bibs, 2 washcloths, wipes, powder, shampoo, diaper cream, toy keys, a rattle and lots and lots of love!
Most diaper cakes all look the same so I decided to make mine look like a real cake, it resembles a wedding cake but it is made of diapers, lace, flowers, and other baby items. Once you get the layers made decorate to your hearts/pocketbooks content. I have made several different versions of this cake but all using an open section that has bottles as the tiers. A little hot glue on the top, and a card board cake board on top of it will secure the open section. Add an empty toilet paper ring in the center of the section below the bottles to have a place to put your flowers. Let your creative juices flow, the possibilities are endless.
I have created a couple of diaper cakes. This one was for my sister who is having a boy. I have done different research and added my own touch to these cakes. I hope to get to see these cakes on the website. It was great fun to create these cakes. Enjoy.
I Love your website! I got so many ideas & so much inspiration! I finally finished my 1st diaper cake for my best friend's baby shower, & I couldn't have done it without the help of the website & everyone's examples. I created my very 1st diaper cake for my best friend's baby shower- it was a big hit! I got my inspiration from viewing pictures & ideas on your website. I would like to upload the pics of my cake here as well. Thanks again & keep up the good work with the site!
I used 150 size 1 diapers lace doubled sided tape to hold the lace around the diapers 4 cake columns to hold the other layers then I put the lamb which says the now I lay me down to sleep prayer. For the cake topper I used a porcelain doll. Everything on this cake can be used.

Use any thing that has to do with a baby. I bought things for 5 months before I realized I had gotten so much that the only way I could give it to my daughter was in a special way.I'm glad I did.
This is the first diaper cake that I have made. I made it for my brother and sister-in-law who were expecting their first son. It's 6 layers not counting the cake separator. The theme was a sports theme. This cake includes over 300 diapers ranging from size newborn to size 3.
In and on the cake there is:
I have since made more for my sister and others, and am trying to start selling these from my home.
This was a really fun diaper cake to make! It's a "Tinkerbell Garden" theme! The center has Tinkerbell sitting on a mushroom bank. It is supported with pillars with 1/4" dowels run through their centers. Enjoy! See more at www.classybabydiapercakes.com
This is a 12 tier diaper cake made with 450 diapers. It is moveable and has working lights. ;)
My niece, "the girl who has everything" was being thrown a baby shower. It was Tiffany-themed. I made a base that looked like a large gift from Tiffany's, and used a small Tiffany's styled box for the cake topper. The Tiffany blue color was used throughout.
