Diaper cakes are popular as baby shower gifts because they are practical and can be used as a centerpiece for the party. You can buy diaper cakes from various online sources, but it's not too difficult to make your own.
The exact supplies you will need for a diaper cake depend upon how large you want your cake to be and how much money you want to spend on the project. At a minimum, however, you’ll need diapers, rubber bands, clear stretch jewelry cord, ribbon, a stuffed animal, and a sheet of cardboard or a cake plate to display your finished baby diaper cake on. You may wish to include rattles, board books, teething rings, baby wash, baby lotion, diaper rash cream, baby wipes, or baby bibs in your diaper cake centerpiece as well.
