- STEP 1. ROLL DIAPERS.
Roll up each diaper from the top to the bottom and secure with a rubber band. The bag of rubber bands I got had three different sizes (color coded based on size). The blue ones were the smallest rubber bands, so I used those for the individual rolled diapers.
- STEP 2. MAKE BOTTOM TIER OF DIAPERS.
Start combining the diaper together in a large round tier (just like a cake!). For the bottom tier, I first made the middle section of the circle by putting together groups of three diapers rubber banded and then started making a large circle by pushing them all together. I put one of the largest rubber bands around the grouping and continued just adding in individual rolled up diapers until it was a good size. I used approximately 48 diapers on the bottom tier.
- STEP 3. MAKE MIDDLE TIER OF BABY DIAPER CAKE.
The middle tier came together much in the same way as the bottom tier, but combining the rolled up diapers in a round shape and putting a large rubber band around them to hold in place. There are approximately 26 diapers in the middle tier.
- STEP 4. MAKE TOP TIER OF THE DIAPER CAKE.
You should have the general gist by now. Put the rolled up diapers in the round shape and rubber band together. There’s about 13 diapers on the top tier.
- STEP 5. STACK THREE TIERS OF DIAPER.
All I did to build the diaper cake up was simply stack the three tiers on top of each other. There wasn’t any other support needed.
- STEP 6. COVER RUBBER BANDS.
To cover up the rubber bands on the tiers, wrap a piece of ribbon around the rubber bands and attach with straight pins. Repeat on all three tiers.
- STEP 7. MAKE TOPPER FOR BABY DIAPER CAKE.
This is the fun part! You can design a topper for your cake to fit with whatever theme you’re doing for your diaper baby shower. You can print out a design and then just tape it to some decorative straws. The straws just slide in the top tier of the diaper cake.
See! I told you guys it was super simple to create a baby diaper cake! You can easily make your own diaper cake for the next baby shower you host or attend.
