To learn how to make a boy diaper cake 'basis', follow my free instructions for a 3-tier plain diaper cake.

Leave away the cotton swabs and choose a blue ribbon or if you prefer, any other color going well with the rest of your items. Then decorate with the theme and items of your choice as shown here.  

Pirate Diaper Cake

3-tier diaper cake with lots of pirates, and pirate themed decoration, personalized 'TIM', main colors are blue and blackfor "real" boys: pirate diaper cake

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. The letters have a pirate theme making them perfect for this cool boy 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!

Disney Cars Diaper Cake

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.



Dog Diaper Cake

The cute boy diaper cake above 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.     


Below is another dog diaper cake idea. I integrated these absolutely cute and personalized leather crawling booties with a dog and "Paul Louis" name on into my boy diaper cake. There's a cuddly toy puppy on top and also the onesie I included into the cake (rolled into a flower bud) has a puppy design. 

For this 3-tier pampers cake I have used 3 packs of 40 diapers each, so all in all it consists of 120 rolled pampers. In the bottom tier I have also integrated a diaper baby wearing a sock hat and sock "sleeping bag".

Giraffe Diaper Cake

The giraffe diaper cake is quite similar to the puppy one, as a centerpiece on top I have used a giraffe baby rattle stick and have matched some of the accessories in yellow colors.

Bathtime Diaper Cake

For this under the sea or bath time boy diaper cake 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 -and your mom, too!  

Snail Diaper Cake

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.
