Now-a-days there aren’t many baby shower parties without diaper cakes. They are now the top choice centerpieces.
But what is a diaper cake? And where to buy diaper cakes for a baby shower? Basically it’s disposable diapers or cloth diapers rolled up, then stacked up (to make tiers), and decorated with baby products.
Alternately, the cake can be made using cloth diapers for mommies who prefer them over disposable (however even they wouldn’t mind few disposables for the unexpected emergencies or during travel time).
Needless to say that cloth diapers are more expensive so the cost of the diaper cake will increase.
Decorating With a Baby Shower Diaper Cake
A baby shower diaper cake creates a perfect centerpiece for several reasons: not only is it clever and creative, but mommy-to-be will use the diapers and the other baby items attached after the baby is born. This often given as a baby shower gift.
Baby Shower Diaper Cake: it’s Unique!
Decorating your room with a unique baby shower diaper cake, is always the crowd pleaser. Your invitees will comment on the centerpiece as darling and unique. Following your theme, your diaper cake should reflect the theme of your party. If you can’t find a theme diaper cake, if can always use a baby boy or girl theme (or unisex if unknown). Some of the popular ones are winnie the pooh diaper cakes and rubber ducky diaper cakes.
The cakes are usually sized from 1-tier up to 5-tier. The tiered diaper cake will be decorated with anything from ribbons, baby products such as, pacifiers, receiving blankets, lotions, etc. All of them are different and unique but they are all pretty to look at!
Baby Shower Diaper Cake: it’s Useful!
Unlike other decorations such as balloons and streamers that get thrown away after the event is over (but please recycle for another party if possible), the baby shower diaper cake is one decoration that does not get discarded. As mentioned before, the cake is made of diapers, the parents-to-be will bring it home and utilize it for their new bundle of joy. On average, each cake holds at least 30 diapers, however if you decide on a multi-tiered cake it can contain a lot more. Other items that can mixed in baby products are washcloths and stuffed animals.
If you choose to order a pre-made cake, there are few sites that sell cakes with specific themes. In the baby shower themes section I provide sites where I have found the best prices on themed based diaper cakes. Please go to the theme section to find where to buy or get ideas on diaper cakes for a baby shower.
However, if you have time and want to be creative, you can always create your own. If you have made one and would like to share it, I would love to see it!
