baby shower diaper cakes

A diaper party well, as the name suggests is a baby shower for the father-to-be and his friends. It is a party truly one-of-its-kind where guests bring wipes and diapers instead of conventional gifts from a baby registry. But having a conservative form of fun doesn’t always make the cut when it comes to diaper parties, unless you are expecting diaper cakes. Diaper cakes are growing into a popular trend and taking baby showers by storm. Being a one-of-a-kind party, it doesn’t comprise cakes or desserts shaped like diapers; it means baby must-haves showcased in arrangements that seldom like confectionaries. While nappies make the ideal gift on a baby shower but they aren’t that interesting when it comes to a diaper party. To break the monotony, fancy and artsy gifts are now making the rounds in such parties. In fact, the essence of these faux cakes are that they look close to realistic cakes and their decorative appeal makes them ideal to be presented as centerpieces in baby shower events.

Step 1: Collect the base

Attach the paper towel tube to your cardboard cake base using hot glue.

Step 2: Roll away the diapers

Roll from the top of each diaper and then secure each one with a rubber band.

Step 3: Assemble the cake layers

Start encircling the base of the cardboard with diapers. Circle the first level with a certain set of diapers and secure them with a band. Create a three-tiered arrangement in the similar way by circling the cardboard in each layer and fasten them together with a rubber band to prevent the arrangement from falling apart.

Step 4: Decorate

You can decorate the cake as per the style you choose. You can either tape the diapers on each layers with a ribbon or attach felt cutout pieces to create a delightful presentation. Lastly, display it on your mantel or a center table as a stunning focal piece for the diaper party.
