Looking for unique baby shower ideas? Consider a custom diaper cake as the perfect gift or centerpiece!
Are you stuck trying to come up with unique baby shower ideas? Do you keep getting stuck on the same old concepts? Well, here’s a great idea – a custom made diaper cake! Custom made diaper cakes make fantastic and highly appreciated gifts and also make fantastic centerpieces that will be the hit of the shower!
Diaper cakes are composed mainly of diapers (and do young parents really need diapers) and can be decorated with a multitude of items that are also very useful for the new arrival. These might include pacifiers, baby spoons, infant keepsake tooth brushes, rattles, small stuffed toys etc. You are only limited by your imagination. Diaper cakes can be made in sizes from relatively small to very large depending on your budget. They can be made 2 – 4 tiers high or even higher if proper center support is provided.
Frequently, two or three friends go together and have a party while making the diaper cake. What a great deal – a party to make the cake and a baby shower party to present the cake! The finished diaper cake can also function as the centerpiece for the baby shower. The diaper cakes can be “generic” in concept or have specific themes such as cartoon characters, Disney themed, family history/tree, etc. They can also be unisex or gender specific.
Use of colors also present a number of options. Soft, pastel colors are typically associated with infants, however, the use of bright, rich colors can add a level of excitement and pizzaz! It will definitely add uniqueness to your final product!
Many diapers come in plain white while others have various colors and design on the outside. The colorful diapers may be all you need to add adequate colors to your cake. If plain white diapers are used, you will probably want to add colorful decorations. In addition, the layers of plain white diapers can be wrapped (frosted) with baby receiving cloths, baby wash cloths or baby blankets. You are only limited by your imagination! Play around, experiment and have fun!
