Make a fantastic diaper cake

Need a gift for a new baby? Are you going to the midwife? Diaper cake is not difficult to make, and it is one of the most beautiful gifts for a new mother and baby.

There are some shops where you can order this diaper cake to be made for you, but the prices are not very favorable and you can rarely find them. This gift has not yet taken root in our country. Learn how to make them yourself. Maybe you will quickly become a master and develop a new business, who knows?

Trust us, making this cake is not difficult at all. We also bring you a video to help you find your way.

From the materials we suggest:diaper cake

  1. Larger package of diapers (for the smallest weight, number 1)
  2. Wider rubber bands
  3. A pack of smaller rubber bands (about 50)
  4. Glue (optional)
  5. Decorative ribbons
  6. Scissors
  7. Toys, bottles, pacifiers, wet wipes, …

When you have made the basic layers – three layers, three floors, you can decorate them as you wish, “enrich” them, add decorations in the form of pacifiers, small toys and accessories for babies. The smallest cake is the three-tiered one, but you can buy several packages of diapers and make an extra large diaper cake.

We will show you how to make the one with three floors. In that case, you need three rubber bands, but wider to be able to cover the “barks”. You can use glue to stick some toys and accessories, but if you can attach them in some other way (thread or insertion) all the better, because glue can destroy diapers. (And the young mother will still want to use them). If you are afraid that the cake will fall apart, it is best to secure the diapers with duct tape.

If you’re buying bottles and pacifiers or diapers and cotton diapers, make sure you buy the highest quality – you want the future mother to use them. Pay attention to the toys as well. They must be from verified manufacturers and, of course, intended for newborns.

In some tutorials, they use cardboard stands or cardboard tubes to make the cake look more solid. But it is not necessary, and it is possible that it puts pressure on the rubber bands and that they break. (We recommend that you still secure the cake, i.e. the crust, with double or triple rubber bands).

Assembling the cake

Roll up each diaper and fasten with small rubber bands to prevent them from unrolling. (Usually about 50 diapers are needed). Stack the diapers upright next to each other and wrap with a large rubber band. That’s how you got your first crust. (Put 1 bottle in the middle of the crust between the diapers). Make another such circle, only narrower and a third even narrower with the smallest diaper. Arrange the “skins” on top of each other. Place a decorative tape over the elastic band. Tie it in a bow or glue the ends. Repeat with the other crusts. Place a stuffed toy on top. You can further decorate the cake as you wish, and you can place it on a real cake stand and give it as a gift.

If you want to connect the skins, cover each one separately with white paper completely (and secure with duct tape, as if you were wrapping a gift) and only then decorate with ribbons. Glue the coated, packed peels on top of each other with glue. This will keep the glue on the paper and not on the diapers.

There are many options for decoration, in the middle instead of a bottle you can put champagne (for mother), chocolates and the like.
