If you have been inspired to make a diaper cake, and you have photos and tips to share with us, you can do so here.
First I started by rolling up diapers(approx 40 size two on bottom and 40 size one divided between the middle and top layers). I attached the diapers together using a rubber band that stretched to surround each layer. I used a receiving blanket to wrap around the bottom and top layers, and a fleece blanket to wrap around the middle. The blankets were secured with diaper pins. Then I inserted a wooden dowel rod into the center to stabilize it. Next I attached the toys and extras to the cake using pins and rubber bands. Finally I wrapped the cake in white netting and tied it with a green bow on top.
Hi, my name is Karen and I created my 1st diaper cake for my granddaughter in Oct. 2006. She mentioned she had wanted her baby's room to be a jungle theme, so I decided to make her diaper cake just that. it took me three weeks to find all the right themed items & 152 diapers. Everything was purchased at retail and it was worth every penny. It was then that I knew I had found my passion, so I searched for wholesale companies & put my own diaper cake designs on my own website ( www.wondrous-things.com )along with some other very unique diaper cakes & other unique baby, mommy & family gifts & boutique items. I am always thinking of new ways to make my diaper cakes so they are the only one of their kind, right now anyway. There are many I haven't put up on my site yet because I am going to show them at one of our trade shows in my town first. This diaper cake has 152 Diapers,3 Receiving Blankets, 3 Onesies, 2 Pr. of socks, 4 Pk.Wash Cloths, Shampoo, Baby wash, Baby Lotion, 1 Pr. of Booties, and 12 Toys.

1 x Large Johnsons baby Powder
1x Johnsons Baby Aqueous Cream tub
1x Step 1 Pigeon Feeding Cup
1 x pack of decorated face cloths
1x 5m Roll of Wired Red Ribbon
Various brightly colored Educational toys and rattles
Method: Roll each diaper and hold together with a rubber band Place baby powder in center of cake board Place rolled diapers in a circle around the baby powder and place a large rubber band around the first circle. You can make 3 circles around the powder to form the base. Place the aqueous cream above the powder and make diaper circles around this to make your second tier For the final tier, place the feeding cup above the aqueous cream and use the balance of the diapers with the rolled face cloths slotted in between The feeding cup is placed on top to give height to the "crowning toy". Now that the hard part is over Here comes the fun part!
Decoration: Measure the ribbon around the each tier. Cut and thread any toys or rattles through it which you require. Use the straight pins to hold the ribbon together ensuring the ribbon ends have been folded in to hide frayed edges. Hide the straight pins with the toys which have velcro attachments which can be wrapped around the ribbon at these points Repeat on all the layer adding the toys as you wish. Wrap ribbon around the portion of the feeding cup which is visible and add the crowning toy.

I am a relatively new internet based company and need to get the word out. I love your site. I've used it so many times....to plan my daughter's three baby showers. I made a diaper cake for her at her shower and then got so many compliments on it so I decided to open a business doing these. I also do wreaths and lollipop bouquets (out of washcloths). My website is www.TheDiaperBaker.com Absolutely I would love for you to credit me these pictures. I hope you like them....

Here are the diaper cakes I came up with last night using ideas from your website. I decided to staple lace around a cardboard base on the giraffe one...

This is my 1st. diaper cake and I thanks Creative Baby Ideas for the "how to directions ".I made this for a baby shower that I am giving for my son and daughter-in-law and my soon to be here 1st. granddaughter.For the center stability I used a paper towel roll that I saved instead of a bottle and I cut cardboard for the bottom and middle tiers,I hot glued the bottom tier to the end of the paper towel roll and cut a hole in the middle tier and ran the roll thru it to the top tier.I added just baby girl things for her bath,like washcloths,shampoo and soap, then some clothing items like pink or flowered onesies,booties,mittens,pacifiers,hair bands,and a pink Darly hippo on top.

After seeing all these wonderful ideas, I decided I would try my hand at making a cake for my daughter's baby shower. We had the shower before the baby was born and didn't know whether it was a boy or girl, so I chose to go with the monkey/jungle theme. A girlfriend and I had an incredibly fun time out hunting for all the items I used! It took 132 diapers (found a site on You Tube where they gave wonderful instructions on how to roll and put the tiers together in video form) and it ended up being 17" in diameter for the bottom layer; and to the top of the monkey's head 20". I included some little spoons, a hair brush and comb, jungle animal teethers, a lion bib, diaper bag sized powder, shampoo, Penaten cream, little plush animals, and baby animal plastic ones she can keep. It was a blast to make...I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Thanks for all the tips!

I make custom diaper cakes for the mom to be! These amazing cakes consist of some or all of the following: About 20 or more Pampers brand diapers, Johnson and Johnson travel products, onesies, receiving blankets, bottles, pacifiers, washcloths,wipe cases, baby rattles, baby plush animals, comb/brush sets, nasal aspirators, nail clippers and medicine droppers. I sometimes form the washcloths to look like candy or lollipops. What a great gift for the mom-to-be!

We used the diaper cakes as centerpieces for the guest tables at the shower and the mom and dad to be took them home to use after the baby is born. They were a great conversation piece and the new parents loved the idea!

Over 200 newborn diapers
Round plastic catering tray
Other fillers such as clothes, blankets, crib sheet, and toys, stuffed animals
After forming 3 tiers of diapers tied off with ribbon, place boppy pillow on catering tray and stuff extra diapers underneath to level it out. Safety pin the two ends of the boppy together so that it will stay in a round shape. Use fishing line to tie over it and hold in place. Continue to connect layers with fishing line tied around (like you would tying a bow on a present where it comes together from four sides) as you also stuff clothes, blankets, or crib sheet throughout the layers. Attach together and tie off on top four rolled receiving blankets with stuffed animal tied on with bow. Complete it by tying or hanging miscellaneous toys on layers.

The blue & brown cake ( safari) ended up with a ty pluffie giraffe on top but my batteries ran out so I didn't get a picture with it. I am also including 3 scrapbook pages we framed & had on the guest book table.

I have made several diaper cakes as centerpieces for baby showers or as personalized gifts for moms-to-be. A client recently shared with me that the diaper cake she purchased from me was quoted as the "best gift she has ever received!" when presented to her friend who was expecting. My suggestion is to base the theme of the cake on the baby's room or on a favorite animal or other personalized item of the new mom. Make her feel special and thought of.

I just wanted to submit pictures of the 2 Diaper Cakes i have now made. They we're so much fun! Both cakes have 66 pampers swaddlers, 5 onesies (on the inside - each one is wrapped around a diaper), 2 Gerber soft bite spoons, 4 receiving blankets (3 on the outside, and then one rolled tightly and put through the center of each tier to keep the cake together), a TY pluffie on the top, and then the blue cake i painted a wooden "N" to match the cake for the baby's initial. Finished off with cute little touches of decor!

This is the first diaper cake I made, it's for my best friend who should be giving birth to her first son today! His room is a jungle theme with brown accents so I chose to put jungle items in the cake and wrap it up with a brown polka dot ribbon. I had fun making the cake so I decided to start my own business. My website is PremierDiaperCakes.com. :)

Tell us about your diaper cake! We would love to hear all about it...
I made this Carousel Diaper Cake for my granddaughter, who has a baby shower in August. A lot of work went into this cake. I made this for a centerpiece at the baby shower.
Was there a theme or style you followed? Yes, I wanted the carousel theme.
How many diapers did you use in your cake? I used 50-60 diapers.
How did you make it? I love making these diaper cakes. I watched a lot of Videos and caught on quite fast on how to make them. I have made maybe two or three more. This is my most recent diaper cake. The carousel top was printed from a template, drawn and cut out of foam board. The bottom of the cake is the diapers.
What were the ingredients? I used 3 baby bottles, blankets, baby socks, washcloths, bibs, baby powder, lotion, baby wash, an assortment of stuffed animals, ribbon, flowers, and a teething ring (which sits on top of the carousel).
Anything else you would like to share with us about your diaper cake or the occasion? The middle of the diaper cake is a roll of paper towels. It was a lot of fun to make. I think I enjoyed making it more than anything else I have made.

I made this for a work mate and his wife. I found things with zebra print and blue items. I also used 2 packs of size 2 diapers and 1/2 pack of size 1 diapers.
The center of the cake is a bottle of "hot sex" booze. The other ingredients are: a stuffed zebra and bottle filled with jelly beans used as the topper, small rattle, teething ring, baby spoons, bibs, wash cloths, small baby powder and baby wash, socks(made into roses) and a onesie.

Green frog stuff animal was the topper, held in place by safety pins. and green curly ribbon underneath the frog. Put the finished diaper cake on a platter which was wrapped up in tissue paper.
