Five Top Tips For
Making A Diaper Cake
are becoming more popular for baby showers and newborn
gift ideas. These cakes, which
offer everything a new mom needs for her new bundle of
joy, can make any baby shower unforgettable. Not only do
they leave a lasting impression, but the new mother can
use every item in the cake, from the blankets to the
diapers, thus providing a fun and useful gift for the
proud mom-to-be. You can make them a three layer to just
a one layer depending on the size gift you want to send.
Here are top five tips to making a diaper cake.
1. Fill your cakes with items you know the mother will
be using. Diapers and blankets we all know, but items
like baby lotions, powder, hand sanitizer, nail
clippers, bottom balm, or Vaseline. You may also
include a bottlebrush, baby bottle, scratch mittens and
2. Choose quality products when you can. I use Luvs
diapers as they are bigger and make your cake more
stable. Blanket size does matter. Keep that in mind when
deciding on the size of your cake. For example,
7, 8, 10, or 12 29x29 will give you an 8" cake and 30 x
40 will give you an 12" cake, a burp cloth will give
you an 7" (they have really cute and colorful burp
clothes out now) for a 10" this size is in between so
you can use a 30 x 40 and just bring in one end a little
more to make it a 10".
3. Make sure you wrap cake as this will deter others
form touching or moving items around. Use cellophane
wrap or cellophane bags, or tulle. Use lots of curly
ribbon makes your cakes look so pretty.
4. Have fun and create your own style everyone has their
own. Themed cakes are very popular (Disney).
Also if the sex of baby is unknown don't fear...mix it
up a bit go with neutral colors. If you know the
babies room color that is even better.
5. If your choosing this as a business-congrats. Making
diaper cakes for a living is so much fun and
very rewarding. A few starter tips are: Have
professional pictures taken of your cakes. Use these
as a portfolio and put them in a book for show and tell.
Have business cards made up and brochures. Set
your pricing. Tell everyone about your cakes. This is a
great time to start because more then likely very
few people have heard of a diaper cake so you get in on
the ground floor.
