Baby shower decorating: the "diaper cake"

My mom came over last week and said she was responsible for the decorating for a baby shower- specifically, five centerpieces- and did I have any ideas?

I didn't.

But Google is my friend and I discovered something called a baby diaper cake. I may be out of the loop, but before this Google search, I'd never seen or heard of a diaper cake in my life. But I thought the idea had potential, and I really couldn't think of any other ideas, so that became the plan.

The result:

Pretty cute, huh? I was actually quite proud of how these turned out. My mom bought a package of diapers, some ribbon, rubber bands and rubber duckies, and we set to work. Mom held Audra while Ella and I rolled the diapers, mom helping when she could, and I formed the "cakes". Isaac helped, too. We were quite the team.

So if you ever need an idea for a baby shower decoration, here's my one and only idea. It's practical, too: the expecting mama gets to take home all those diapers!


  1. These are great, Stacy! I've seen numerous diaper cakes, but yours are so clean and simple and cute! Good job!

  2. Ohh I love it!!! What a great idea! Good work girls!

  3. This is cute! I've never seen a diaper cake either. And I love a practical gift!

  4. You did a great job on these. Can't believe you are able to pull of being creative at your current "season in life." Impressive.

  5. I saw the ducky on top and was instantly happy ;) Very cute (and practical)!
