I love making diaper cakes for newborns, baby showers, and toddler gifts. I think it’s a great gift because everything is useful and can be filled up with a variety of different things depending on what you feel like giving the baby.
I start off by making a base out of cardboard and then I roll up individual diapers. I used to put an elastic around every diaper until I discovered that a large elastic band works just as well and is a lot easier to put together (and take apart).
I made this cake 3 tiered and topped it off with a cute little lamb.
I like to wrap the gift up in some cellophane and ribbon and, voila, the diaper cake is ready to be served!
