Roll each of your diapers tightly then secure with a rubber band. Repeat until all diapers are rolled.
Place your baby lotion in the center of the cake stand and make a ring around it with rolled diapers. Place a large rubber band around the diapers to create your base.
Add another layer of diapers around the first layer with another large rubber band to secure the final bottom layer.
Repeat with a second and third layer of diapers, building up. The only difference is that you'll only do one circle of diapers per layer, not two.
Wrap your cake with ribbon, securing with straight pins.
Add baby items in and around the cake to decorate.
Use decorations to personalize the cake. Having a sports themed baby shower, do a fun basketball onesie or little baby basketball shoes. Doing an animal themed shower? Add in little stuffed animals, animal socks, and animal wash cloths.Display the cake where people can’t touch it. For some reason people really like to touch diaper cakes, especially all the cute little items on them. If you want it to look nice throughout the baby shower, stick it in the middle of a table or on a counter out of reach.Make a small diaper cake by simply cutting down the number of diapers used in the tutorial.Decorate the cake with gifts that you would actually give the mom to be rather than junk that just looks cute.Roll the diapers as tight as possible. If they’re too loose, it won’t look as good and it’ll be harder to keep that cake look.
