For this pirate diaper cake I have used a small Playmobil set with pirates, a treasure chest, a monkey, a palm tree and a pirate flag. I have placed the pirates and pirate accessories around the cake. You can easily fix the Playmobil pirates by just hanging them somewhere on your ribbon. I have stuffed the top with a washcloth with a pirate design and have fixed a Playmobil palm tree there.
This cake is also a personalized boy diaper cake. The letters have a pirate theme making them perfect for this great pirate diaper cake!
For safety reasons, mommy needs to keep the Playmobil toys aside until baby boy is at least three years old!
If you like pirate designs, also have a look at the pirate diaper bouquet below!
This Cars Diaper Cake features a Disney Cars playset and some baby spoons. The little cars are lightweight and can easily be placed on top of the diapers. At the top I have fixed a gift certificate and a toy wind wheel. The base is covered with 2 Disney Cars napkins. A real eye-catcher for every car lover!
Here, too, the toys must be kept away from baby until he is old enough to play with them!
If you want to include Disney Cars baby merchandise into your boy diaper cake, consider the following items: Cars thermal bottle as your center piece, Cars flatware (available by First Years) to stick upside down into your diapers, Cars baby booties to stick between the diapers or to place on top, Cars toddler blanket to go around your cake or to stick into the middle (rolled up), Cars 'Baby on Board' sign to place on top, Cars onesies to roll up and stick between your diapers (remove a diaper from your cake and replace by the rolled up onesie), Cars baby bottles to replace a diaper, Cars stickers to decorate your cake, etc. Also check for Disney Cars party decoration such as flags, road signs, ribbons, and so on.
This cute boy diaper cake features a cuddly dog sitting on top. It's decorated with some baby care items such as baby oil and baby lotion as well as 2 pairs of baby socks rolled as flowers, a pacifier and a soccer themed pacifier chain. It's personalized for baby boy 'Danjel'. I have also used fuzzy turquoise pompoms in different sizes to top some of the diapers. While artificial flowers and roses are cute for a girl diaper cake, these pom-poms are ideal for a boy diaper cake.
The giraffe diaper cake is quite similar, as a centerpiece on top I have used a giraffe baby rattle stick and have matched some of the accessories in yellow colors.
For this bathtime boy diaper cake for a little boy I have used blue squirting toys, some maritime cloth pegs, baby spoons, bottles of baby bath and baby shampoo (to fix them I have removed 2 diapers each and have placed the bottles inside the ribbon) and finally a fish sponge at the top. Splish splash, have fun, little baby boy!
With selecting the right colors and 'ingredients' you can create a perfect boy diaper cake out of a more girly theme. I have chosen the accessories and ribbons in green and different shades of blue and have added some pink post partum body care products for the new mom. I have replaced some diapers of the base with some little bottles and tubes for mommy. This cake is a mixture of a traditional diaper cake (first tier) with a diaper snail on top. If you want to see how to make it, click on the diaper snail image further below.
The snail is fixed on the base with 3 plastic baby spoons and it stays in place without any problems.
