One of the most popular baby shower trends is diaper cakes.

Diaper cakes can seem to be a bit overwhelming, but when you break down the steps you realize just how simple they are to create and to customize.

What you will need:

– 16″ cardboard cake round – 93- size 1-2 Huggies diapers (52 for the bottom layer, 27 for the middle layer, 17 on top) – One bottle of champagne or sparkling cider ( a special gift for the mom-to-be) – 100 large rubber band – Three wooden skewer – Two rolls of ribbon of your choice (3-4 yards) – Hot Glue Gun/Hot Glue

The first thing you will need to do is roll your diapers. Starting at the open end of the diaper, roll your diapers and then secure with a rubber band.


Put together the base for your diapers to go around. Adding a nice bottle of champagne is our preferred choice! It’s a great support for the diaper cake and a nice surprise for the mom-to-be.


Now it’s time to start layering on the diapers. Keeping the seams of the diapers in towards the champagne bottle.


For the second tier, add in skewers for extra support. Stick the skewers in the diaper cake as close to the champagne bottle as possible.


Now it is time to add on the top tier of your diaper cake. For this tier we used 17 rolled diapers.
