Most Beautiful Diaper Cake Ever

This is seriously the most beautiful diaper cake ever! And the tutorial sounds really easy!

We had a little shower at work for a co-worker with a little bundle of joy on the way!  We knew we wanted to make a diaper cake to use as a centerpiece.  So, naturally, I scoured Pinterest for an easy Diaper Cake Tutorial.

This is seriously the most beautiful diaper cake ever!  And the tutorial sounds really easy!

I was inspired by this beauty at Really Quite Lucky.

So, I totally cannot take credit for the idea. I mean, it is genius. The receiving blankets covering the diapers look like a fondant cake.  Also, I had two of the sweetest co-workers ever helping me. So it was a group effort. But it turned out too cute not to share!

Here’s what you need. (We got everything from Wal-Mart and my co-worker did an awesome job buying everything to color coordinate.)  But just to make your life easier I’ve added links to similar ones on Amazon (affiliate links).

4 pack of receiving blankets (like these from Amazon or these)
4 pack of spoons
3 pack of teething rings
2 pack of wrist rattles
6 pack of baby socks
1 little plush stuffed animal
1 large box of newborn diapers  or size 1
pins (we used pretty ones with pink heads)
polka dot ribbon (2 colors) or this multicolored one
1 safety pin

The receiving blankets came folded the long way so I just left them that way and pinned them together to make a big circle.  To make the bottom layer as wide as I wanted it I pinned two receiving blankets together end to end.

Then you fill the circle in with diapers laying on their side.  Here is a picture of the bottom of one of the layers so you can see how the diapers are just swirled around in there.

After you have filled the diaper inside the receiving blanket, fold and pin the excess blanket over the top of the diapers.  This picture also shows how we used the ribbon to hang the teething rings from the side of the diaper cake.

One of the blankets had a butterfly embroidered on it so we made sure it was in the center just for the cuteness factor.  We also pinned individual socks to the sides of the diaper cake.  The spoons are attached using a safety pin.  Genius – but I can’t take credit.  It was in the tutorial linked above.
We embellished each layer of the “cake” with polka dot ribbon that was I just pinned on there at the back.
Spoons
They didn’t have wash clothes that matched our color scheme (like in the tutorial) so we put a little stuffed animal on the top to hide the diapers on the top.

You may want to consider using size 1 or 2 diapers so that the parents can display the diaper cake longer without the baby outgrowing the diapers.  Just a thought!

I love it!  Pin it now for later!

    {Pretty sure the only awards I have been eligible for up to this point relate to procrastination and a toy overflows.}
