Makes a Unique Baby Gift


Many baby showers can be very routine with the same themes, gifts, etc.  Ever want to give a truly unique baby gift?  How about a Diaper Cake.  Diaper cakes are a fun, useful alternative to the standard, high sugar, fat filled, waist-line expanding cakes to celebrate special occasions.  Though they were originally dubbed “diaper cakes” and were basically made for baby showers, you are not limited to diapers.  While the traditional diaper cake is made almost completely of diapers for the newborn infant, use your imagination!  These special cakes can be modified and made for any special occasion.

  • that special “over-the-hill” birthday  Diaper
  • retirement
  • wedding/shower
  • anniversary
  • graduation
  • and MANY more!

Diaper cake designs can be large or small, simple or complex and can be made to accommodate any budget.  Though there are some basic design concepts, you are only limited by your imagination!  Kick back and enjoy the fun!

“Diaper cakes” do not have to be made out of diapers.  Non-traditional or “diaper-free” cakes can be made out of about any thing for any occasion.

For example, for a house-warming or graduation gift, your cake may be made of wash cloths, bath towels, dish towels, recipe cards, kitchen utensils, aprons, sheets, etc., etc.  For the person who likes to grill you might use aprons, grilling utensils, fire starters, grilling recipes, seasonings, marinades, coupons, etc.

If  a fisherman is the guest of honor you might consider gloves, fishing lures, artificial bait, fishing line, bobbers, fish hooks, sinkers, etc.  Again, you are only limited by your imagination.

Diaper free diaper cakes can be very creative, useful and appreciated.  In addition, they are fun to design, make and give!!
