11 Creative Ideas for Diaper Cakes

Baby showers are so much fun to style and decorate! Many times, the hosts put together a sweet diaper cake for the mom-to-be. Diaper cakes are great because they make a beautiful decorative piece but are also a wonderful gift for the guest of honor to take home. Just plain ol’ diaper cakes in themselves are just adorable. But they also come in so many elaborate and creative styles. Erin had a baby shower right before her son was born a few weeks ago. Her friends made the sweetest diaper cake for her; a big plush bear riding a motorcycle that was made out of diapers. She absolutely loved it. I had never seen a diaper cake like that before, and it made me wonder.. what other unique and cute styles are out there? I’ve rounded up several of our favorites below!

1. Chalkboard + Burlap Diaper Cake. This is actually one we designed for a baby shower using our Charming Chalkboard Baby Shower Hostess Kit. Yeah, I may be partial and a {little} biased, but the simplicity of the burlap ribbons on this cake makes it one of my favorites.

Hot Air Balloon Diaper Cake Tutorial + Free Printables!2. Hot Air Balloon Diaper Cake. This diaper cake is something guests will be sure to tell their friends about. It is so unique and fun, and Hostess With The Mostess even gives you the tutorial and printables to create this look yourself!

Nautical Theme Ship Wheel Diaper Cake Instructions3. Nautical Ship Wheel Diaper Cake. We love that this is so different from the typical cake style, plus it can double as a front door decoration! Find the downloadable instructions on Etsy for $8.50.

Diaper Babies 5. Diaper Babies. Another fun alternative to the standard diaper cake. No diapers are actually used, but instead it’s made out of wash cloths and socks. I think we can agree, it’s just as cute! Frugal Fanatic gives a tutorial on how to make this very sweet gift yourself.

Chic {French Inspired} Pink Baby Shower6. French Inspired Diaper Cake. This diaper cake is similar to the first burlap one, but with a little more pizzazz. Pink ribbons and flowers give it a softer look, and we love the detail of the baby name in wood letters! Not  to mention the little rabbit on top!

Princess Castle7. Princess Castle Diaper Cake. Welcome the little princess in style with this pretty incredible castle cake! It actually looks more involved to make it than it really is when you examine how it’s done. So cute! (Found on Etsy.)
