Diaper Cake Directions! What is a Diaper Cake?
The introduction of the Diaper Cake has become extremely popular in recent years. But what is a Diaper Cake? It is not edible! It is a decoration often used as centerpiece at Baby Showers! It
looks like a multi-layered cake but mainly consists of disposable diapers! Cloth diapers can be used but this is more difficult and does not produce such a good result and consequently disposable nappies are most often used. Disposable diapers are therefore included in our instructions and directions for making diapers cakes.

Diaper Cake Directions - Basic Concept!
Instructions are relatively easy to follow making it simple to
make your own cakes from diapers! Basically the directions and instructions detail using disposable diapers which are rolled up and then wrapped around each other in a circular pattern. More diapers are added to build multiple tiers. Diaper cakes can be between one and five tiers.

Diaper Cake Directions - Materials you will need
For a perfect diaper cake you will need:

  • Two to three packs of good quality diapers

  • A selection of rubber / elastic bands

  • White cardboard

  • Sweets / Candy

  • Table Confetti

  • Ribbon

  • Bows

  • Small gifts , see the table below for ideas

  • Cellophane

Diaper Cake Directions - Steps to follow

Step 1 - First Layer

  • Roll up a diaper, with the pattern end on the outside and secure with an elastic band.

  • Repeat process until you have fifteen to twenty diapers rolled up, each secured with elastic bands.

  • Place diapers in a circular shape and secure together with a single large elastic band.

Step 2 - Second Layer

  • Roll up ten to fifteen diapers and secure individually as per first layer.

  • Place diapers in a circular shape and secure together with a single large elastic band.

  • Cut a piece of white cardboard approximately the same circumference as the second layer of diapers.

  • Place the cut piece of cardboard on top of the first layer of diapers.

  • Put the second layer of diapers onto the cardboard.

Step 3 - Additional Layers (diaper cakes are usually between one and five layers)

  • Repeat the second layer process for each additional tier of the diaper cake reducing the number of diapers used each time so the tiers become smaller (like a wedding cake!)

  • Add a cake topper, a small cuddly toy or an item to match your theme is ideal. Make sure the cake topper is not too heavy or your diaper cake will collapse!

Step 4 - Finishing Touches

  • Once the structure of the cake is complete place gifts in between each of the layers or tiers.

  • Sprinkle table confetti over the cake to match your color scheme or theme.

  • Add some small bows and place sweets or candy on the cake.

  • Wrap the entire cake in cellophane paper.

  • Tie with ribbon and bows
