Do you need a present for a baby shower to which you’ve been invited? Or maybe you’re the one throwing the baby shower and you want to know how to make a diaper cake for the dessert table.

A diaper cake is a wonderful present for the expecting mother, and it also has the added bonus of looking festive and fabulous. She’s sure to adore it. Keep reading for 25 fantastic diaper cake decorating ideas and instructions.

What Exactly Is a Diaper Cake?

Simply put, a diaper cake is a gift cake made out of diapers. Ribbons, miniature toys, paper cutouts, and sometimes a sign that reads “Oh, baby!” are common ways that people adorn this gift.

At a baby shower, a diaper cake may be presented to the expectant mother by a guest or made by the host as a decorative element for the buffet.

The diaper cake can be themed to the baby shower or can have more generic baby-related decorations. The mom’s personality and taste can be reflected in the diaper cake’s design in a number of ways, such as by giving it a contemporary feel with succulents or greenery or by decorating it in the colors of her favorite sports team.

You need not be present at the baby shower to make the expecting mother a diaper cake. You might want to bring one to a sip and see after the baby is born, or give one to a coworker before she takes maternity leave.

The expectant mother will be surprised and delighted no matter when or how you present her with the diaper cake, and you’ll have a good time making it.

How Many Diapers Do You Need to Make A Diaper Cake?

The diapers themselves will be the focal point of your diaper cake. I opted for Size 1 disposable diapers because they were slightly larger than the smallest newborn size but still manageable for the first few days.

I used fifty diapers in total for my diaper cake, and I think that’s the bare minimum you’ll need. A diaper cake made with 50 diapers will stand at about 14 inches tall, making it an appropriate centerpiece. A larger cake could be made with more or larger layers.

It’s possible that the diapers’ packaging will be the only minor annoyance with the 50-count order. Since each pack of size 1 diapers only contained 20, I ended up buying two packs and still having a lot of diapers left over. I just brought my extra diapers along to the baby shower and made sure to send them home with the mom-to-be.

What You’ll Need to Make a Diaper Cake

As you’ll see, you have loads of choices when it comes to how you make and decorate your diaper cake, but here’s a basic list of the things you’ll need:

  • Diapers. One or two packs of diapers (depending on the size of the pack, of course) may be enough for a small to medium size diaper cake, but you can also go much larger and use more diapers if you wish! As a rough guide: the base may require 20 and 60 diapers, the second tier about 10 to 40 diapers, and the third tier 5 to 20 diapers. These numbers are just estimates, though, and it’s entirely your choice how big each tier is and how many levels you would like to create.
  • Elastic rubber bands. You’ll need one extra-large rubber band per tier and as many small ones as you have diapers if you’re using the rolling method.
  • Decorative ribbon. You’ll need this to hold the diapers in place and as decoration.
  • A base. Think about whether you want to use cardboard, a cake stand, or a tray. Some cakes look good on a slice of wood, which you can buy at some craft stores or online.
  • Glue. You can go without glue, but it might help with securing the ribbon.
  • Dowels. If you plan to have tiers, you’ll need dowels to keep the layers fixed on top of each other.
  • Scissors
  • Optional extras: small baby gifts to decorate the diaper cake, and any craft supplies for the sign and/or decorations you would like to have. Check out our decoration ideas below for more inspiration on what you might need.
  • Large lengths of cellophane or soft tulle. You’ll need this if you plan to wrap the finished product.

What Diapers to Use

Obviously, you’ll need diapers to make a diaper cake. We recommend using Swaddlers, Pure Protection, or Cruisers 360° Fit.

The diaper size is entirely up to you. It may make sense, however, to buy a bigger size, which can be easier to work with when making the cake.

Keep in mind that using just one size of diapers may help you make the diaper cake level—as you won’t be juggling diapers of different widths and heights — but you might also like to use a different size to create each tier of the cake. That way, the parents-to-be will have a variety of sizes on hand for their baby.

Step-by-Step: How to Make a Diaper Cake

Making a diaper cake takes patience, but it can also be a whole lot of fun. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to get your creative juices flowing. Follow these five simple steps, and before you know it, you’ll have the finished product ready to go.

Step 1: Choose a base

Having a sturdy base is crucial, especially if you will be transporting your diaper cake. The last thing you want is for it to fall apart because of a flimsy base. You could use a piece of firm cardboard, a cake stand, or a large tray. If you choose cardboard, you can cover it in foil or wrapping paper, or cut it into a circle that’s the exact same size as the bottom tier of the cake so that it will be virtually hidden.

Step 2: Prepare the diapers

There are two main methods for making a diaper cake — the roll-up and the wrap methods: For a roll-up diaper cake, roll up each individual diaper and secure it with a small rubber band so that it can’t unfurl. You can also tie a ribbon around each, but this is more time consuming. Set each one aside until you’ve rolled them all up.

For a wrap diaper cake, there’s not much you need to do. Simply take the diapers out of the packaging and move on to step three.

Step 3: Position the diapers

For a roll-up diaper cake, position the rolls vertically and close together until you’ve reached the size you want for the base tier. Secure the rolls in place with an extra-large rubber band or ribbon. If you’re using a rubber band, you can cover it with ribbon later on. To fasten the ribbon, you can either use a bit of hot glue (taking care not to get any on the diapers) or tie a small knot that you can hide under a decoration later on. Another option is to tie a big bow using the long ends of ribbon.

If you’ll be having a second tier, place about three wooden dowels between the diaper rolls so that your next layer of rolls will be held firmly in place.

Create the second tier by placing more diaper rolls around the dowels. The second tier should be smaller than the first. Secure the second tier with an extra-large rubber band or ribbon just as you did with the first tier. If the dowels are too long, trim them down to size (or replace them with shorter ones).

First, add as many layers as you like (typical cakes have two or three layers), and then move on to the next step. To make a diaper cake with a wrapped base, simply stand an unopened roll of paper towels on end as your foundation. Keep wrapping until the width of the first tier of your diaper cake is where you want it. Wrap an extra-large rubber band around the stack of diapers, or tie them together with a ribbon once you’re finished. A bow or knot can be used to secure the ribbon, or hot glue (careful not to get any on the diapers!). You can hide the rubber band when you get to decorating the diaper cake.

Remember that some people prefer to use a bottle of champagne in place of the paper towel roll as a surprise for the expecting parents. A baby bottle would work just as well. which could later be incorporated into the present you give the parents. It’s a pleasant surprise either way, but you could also use a paper towel roll. Diapers should be wrapped continuously around the upper half of the paper towel roll to create a second tier. Use a rubber band or a ribbon to keep the second tier in place, and make sure it’s shorter than the first. Either add a third, smaller tier in the same manner, or proceed to the fourth step.

Step 4: Add decorations

Diaper cakes can be decorated however you like. Wrap some ribbon or fabric around the rubber band you used to secure your diaper rolls.

Put some small toys on the base of the cake or on each individual layer.

Putting a large stuffed animal, such as a teddy bear, on top of the cake also works.

Fresh flowers, paper cutouts, signs written in calligraphy, etc. are just a few of the options for embellishment. You could stick with the baby shower’s designated color scheme or go in a completely different direction.

Check out these baby shower theme ideas for girls and baby shower theme ideas for boys if you, as the host, have not yet decided on a theme.

Step 5: Wrap the diaper cake

Wrapping the cake before transporting it can help prevent it from crumbling or getting squished during transit. The base of the diaper cake should be set on a large sheet (or two) of cellophane or soft tulle. To finish, lift the cellophane up over the cake, gather the corners, and tie the package shut with a ribbon.

25 Diaper Cake Decoration Ideas

To make your diaper cake stand out from the crowd, you can use any number of imaginative embellishments. If you want your diaper cake to stand out, consider these 25 creative options.

  1. Decorate with bright ribbons. The diapers can be held in place with the help of ribbons, and the ribbons can also help unify the diaper cake’s aesthetic. Fabulous color combinations include:
    • The classic colors of a baby shower, blue and white.
    • Pink and white are a baby shower staple for a reason.
    • This lovely gender-neutral option features soft yellows and pastel blues.
    • For a contemporary feel, try a dark blue or black and silver color scheme.
    • Gold, which goes well with a wide variety of hues and is especially appropriate if the design is meant to convey a starry nighttime atmosphere.
    • It’s the perfect shade of purple for a baby shower with a woodland or fairy theme.
    • Green and brown are perfect for a diaper cake with a forest theme.
    • The traditional colors of children, red, blue, and yellow, are perfect for a baby shower with a superheroes theme.
  1. Make use of multiple ribbons of varying patterns or use ribbons of varying widths. Choose a ribbon with a unique trim or a pattern, like polka dots. Alternately, you could start with a wider ribbon and finish with a thinner ribbon of a different color or texture. You’re not limited to just cotton; try using lace or burlap instead.
  2. The use of twine is recommended. Rather than using ribbon to hold the diapers together, the current trend is to use twine, which gives the diaper cake a more rustic appearance. It can be stunning when combined with plants and flowers.
  3. Wrap the fabric around each tier. If you’re throwing a baby shower with a farm or country theme, you could cover the tiers in buffalo check. Alternatively, you could wrap each layer in muslin as a gift for the mother-to-be.
  4. The foundation is where you can really show your creativity. Use a smooth plank of wood as the centerpiece for a baby shower with a forest or nature theme. Diaper cakes look especially pretty when displayed on mirrored trays, which will magnify the pink and gold hues of the shower’s theme. Wrap cardboard bases in wrapping paper that complements the diaper cake’s overall color scheme.
  5. To make paper cutouts, you can either print them out or create them yourself. You could decorate the sides of your diaper cake with cutouts of woodland creatures like owls, foxes, and sprites if that’s the theme. Look at these templates to get ideas. The cutouts need not even be specifically baby-themed; onesies, baby bottles, and baby shoes are all fair game. Glue the cutouts to the ribbon, being careful not to get any glue on the diapers, or use small decorative pegs to secure them.
  6. Put on a bow and tie. Add bows and bow ties to your diaper cake if the baby shower has a “bows and bow ties” theme.
  7. Tulle can be used as a decorative overlay. Diaper cakes can be decorated with pink, purple, or white tulle trim to fit a ballerina or princess theme. One more advantage is that the base is concealed.
  8. Send a flowery message. Flowers are an appropriate gesture to show appreciation to the expecting mother. Diaper cakes can be decorated with real or artificial flowers, or with paper or craft materials cut into flower buds. Making your own felt flowers at home is easy and can result in a stunning display.
  9. Strike a pose with a pennant banner. One tier of the cake can be decorated with a small pennant banner purchased from a party supply store. Alternatively, you could make your own by cutting triangles from patterned card stock and stringing them together. Each triangle can also be personalized by having it spell out a word or phrase, such as “baby.”
  10. Construct a signal. Make a sign that reads “Oh, baby!” (if the gender has been revealed) or “Oh, boy!” (if the gender has not been revealed) or something else appropriate for a baby shower. Here is the time to enlist the help of any calligraphy-savvy friends you may have. Incorporate whatever catches your eye, whether it be a variety of card stock colors, glitter, a rainbow of ink colors, or anything else. Painting with one’s fingers is also a cute idea. Put a toothpick in the bottom corner of your finished sign and wedge it between two diaper rolls to make it stand up.
  11. Spread some small presents around the bottom or up the levels. You can make your diaper cake even more impressive by including some small baby items in it as a gift to the new parents. You can include things like a pacifier, a teething ring, a baby bottle, a rolled-up bib or burp cloth, baby socks, mittens, a small travel pack of wipes, and a teething toy. You don’t need a lot to make a big difference; even a couple of extras will spruce up your diaper cake.
  12. Put a stuffed animal on top. Place a stuffed animal, such as an elephant, a bunny, or a teddy bear, on top of your diaper cake. The stuffed animal can be the same color as the diaper cake’s theme (pink, for example) or a contrasting color. Place a dark brown teddy on top of a baby blue diaper cake, for instance.
  13. Crumbled paper should be added to each level. This is a common method of protecting the diaper rolls in between levels. You can decorate your diaper cake by placing handfuls of shredded paper on each layer, and you can find shredded paper in colors and patterns to match any theme you have in mind.
  14. Top it off with a rubber ducky. A yellow rubber ducky bath toy is the quintessential symbol of childhood. Put a toy duck on top of the diaper cake if it goes with the theme. The soon-to-be parents will love this idea and find it useful in the long run.
  15. Add some live greenery or succulents to the room to update the decor. Baby-themed diaper cakes aren’t the only option. Succulents, green branches, or local flowers would all be lovely atop a diaper cake. When combined with twine or burlap, this can be quite beautiful.
  16. Then, cover them with a pair of infant shoes. Using a set of baby booties or shoes as a cake topper is a brilliant idea because nothing is cuter.
  17. Just throw in a mini helium balloon. There is probably a wide selection of colorful and witty “Oh, baby!” helium balloons for sale at your neighborhood party store. Stash the helium balloon’s straw between two diaper rolls for secure storage.
  18. Do something magical, like the unicorn. There’s no doubt that your diaper cake will be a hit if you decorate it with a horn, ears, and eyelashes in the shape of a unicorn. To create the illusion of a magical unicorn, you need only card stock and glitter. Then, insert a toothpick through the center of the shape and into the space between the diaper rolls.
  19. Sweeten the mix. After all, you can’t argue with the fact that it’s a diaper cake. Put some wrapped cake pops or cookie sticks in the middle of the diaper rolls for a sweet treat. Consider putting up a sign that reads “Sweet baby” if you choose to go this route.
  20. Adopt a theme that fits the holiday at hand. Flowers that bloom in summer, like sunflowers, or insects, like bees, are great options for decorating a diaper cake in the warmer months. Pumpkins and changing leaves are seasonal symbols of autumn. Make a snowman diaper cake, or decorate it with gray ribbon, silver glitter, and paper snowflake cutouts for the winter season. The finishing touch on a winter diaper cake is a sign that reads “Baby, it’s cold outside.” And for spring, I’d suggest using butterflies or a bunny motif for your decor. Flowers are effective anytime of the year, but they really shine in the spring.
  21. Include a book written specifically for kids. For example, you could include your favorite children’s book in the diaper cake if the baby shower has a “bring a book” theme.
  22. Light up the tiers by winding lights around them. A set of battery-operated lights is something you can get at any supermarket or department store, or even online. If you want to go with a “twinkle, twinkle, little star” or “a star is born” theme, stunning lighting can help set the mood. This is going to steal the show!
  23. Double the joy if the expecting mother is carrying twins. To ensure that each baby girl receives her own cuddly toy, you may want to make two miniature diaper cakes or include two toys.
  24. Simple and compact is best. No rule says a diaper cake has to be elaborate. Create a one-tier diaper cake out of a single package of diapers, wrap it in pretty ribbon, and top it with a sign and a stuffed animal. There, problem solved.

What to Look for When Buying Diapers


It’s crucial to locate a diaper that serves your child’s needs while also being within your financial means. After that, keep an eye out for sales on your go-to brands, as even small amounts of money saved at checkout add up quickly. Some other ways to save money include making bulk purchases or joining a subscription service.

Disposable vs. Cloth

Disposable and reusable diapers are the two most common options. They’re both excellent choices, but one has fewer costs and fewer hassles. Think about what would fit best with your family’s routine and how you live.

Many modern disposable diapers are made with environmental friendliness in mind, but even so, they can contribute significantly to landfill overflow. However, disposables are the way to go when traveling, when you don’t have access to washing machines, or if you simply don’t care about cloth diapering. Disposable diapers have a higher initial investment, but they’re great for families with multiple children because they allow for fast, simple diaper changes.

Cloth diapers are better for the environment, but they are more expensive to use. Even though you’ll end up saving money by switching to cloth diapers, you may have to spend hundreds to get started. Think about the frequency of washing and how many spares you will need.


Absorbency is a key factor for parents and caregivers when selecting a diaper. All of us wish there were diapers that could contain a ginormous accident. Look into the construction of the diaper to make sure your baby isn’t a frequent wetter.

Some diapers have an additional absorbent layer on the inside to prevent leaks and blowouts. The duration of protection offered by competing brands is another consideration before making a purchase.

The bottom line

When it comes to diaper cakes, there is no such thing as a wrong answer. It’s the thought that counts, so no matter how big or small, extravagant or understated, your efforts will be appreciated. Have a good time with it and see the look of delight on the special someone’s face when you present your masterpiece.
