Diaper cakes have become a popular decoration/gift idea for baby showers. Made completely out of newborn diapers (or any size diapers for that matter) and covered with useful items for a new mom and baby, diaper cakes are practical gift ideas, as well as conversation pieces. And once the baby is born, all mom and dad need to do is undo the cake, layer by layer, and use the diapers!
I've seen two different ways to construct a diaper cake, the way I've done them, continuously rolling diapers together to form the cake layers or the second way, by rolling each individual diaper and then wrapping the individually rolled diapers around a core.
Each diaper cake starts with a theme making each one a personalized gift. Themes can be based off of anything, the nursery, the bedding the expecting parents picked for their baby, the shower theme, anything is possible!
