What Is A Diaper Cake Made Of And How Should It Be Used?
This is a question that many of our Party Pail customers ask! A diaper cake is not a real cake to eat. It is a hand crafted decoration and gift made from top quality disposable diapers that are rolled up and fashioned into tiers to resemble a multi-layered cake. Useful items like bottles and pacifiers combined with pretty ribbons, silk flowers or stuffed animals are added to the diaper cake to embellish it for a gender neutral, a girl or boy shower. Many of the diaper cakes coordinate perfectly with our fabulous Baby Shower Themes
from a vast collection of party supplies.
A diaper cake is generally used as a stylish baby shower centerpiece on a table and works double duty as a unique and very useful gift for the mom-to-be! If you’ve decided to use a diaper cake as a decorative centerpiece or send one to a mother-to-be as a unique gift to welcome her little bundle of joy, consider which size and style of diaper cake will suit your budget and purpose:The diaper cake's size:
The diaper cake's style:
- Small diaper cakes feature 1-3 tiers with 20-40 disposable diapers and generally stand around 12 inches tall. The smaller size makes a good choice for a centerpiece at a table where guests are seated because it won’t be too tall to see over.
- Large diaper cakes feature 3-4 tiers with 40-100 disposable diapers and measure around 20 inches tall. This is a good size for a large banquet table, gift table or as a decorative accent on a side table at the party venue.
If you’ve already selected a theme, we suggest choosing a diaper cake to coordinate with those party supplies. Choose from adorable designs with jungle themes, ducks, owls, ladybugs and more to coordinate with our most popular themes. Or, choose an elegant floral style adorned in pinks, blues or neutral colors for a sophisticated touch to a baby shower. If the diaper cake is intended to be a gift only, then we suggest choosing one to coordinate with the nursery decor!
