How to make a boutique style diaper cake

1. This may be the hardest part….find white (plain) diapers. Everything I saw had a design or character on it. Luckily I found some with blue & green dots and those are the colors for the baby shower I’m currently planning. Another option if you can’t find white diapers is to use fabric or paper to cover the diapers.

2.Decide on number of tiers. Buy or borrow round cake pans in varying sizes. For the 3 tiered cake I made I used 12″, 10″ & 8″ round pans.

3.Spread diapers around edge of the pan. Try to keep the overlaps even.

4. The completed first tier will look like this. Place a rubber band around the diaper to hold the form together

5. Remove the diapers from pan and place bottles in the center to help the form hold its shape.

6. Repeat steps 3-5 for remaining tiers

7. Place second layer on top of first, the tops of the bottles will help the second form hold its shape.

8.Place the third layer on top. You can either use a small bottle for the center or use diapers. I used one rolled diaper to help keep the third form solid.

(I will update this picture with the finished product once it’s complete!)

9. Use coordinating ribbon to cover the rubber bands. Secure ribbon with hot glue.

10. Add any other additions you would like such as stuffed animals or flowers for the topper and small baby items such as bibs, socks, onesies, lotion, etc to sides.
