Why diaper cakes make great baby gifts and baby shower gifts

A baby nappy cake, diaper animal or diaper bouquet are a great gift for baby showers and for welcome homes. Diaper cakes are ideal for every new, expectant and 'mom of many'.
Diapers are something useful and practical and by giving a pampers cake you 'transform' and display these useful and essential items into a beautiful and impressive artwork.
Ready-made diaper cakes come in all forms, designs and sizes and you can order them online at various baby gift shops. But:

Making a diaper cake on your own really (and literally) is a piece of cake and makes your gift so much more unique and personal!

Follow my easy, simple and step by step instructions, accompanied by lots of pictures, and you will learn how to make a beautiful and unique diaper cake in no time! Everybody can do it - even if you think your fingers are all thumbs - just have the courage to try! It will take you no longer than a couple of hours to come up with a truly unique baby diaper gift!

A diapercake can be a gift on its own or you can also combine it with all sorts of other baby gifts such as a babysitting coupon, a gift certificate, a creative gift of money, etc.

Choose a really simple and easy diaper cake that consists of diapers only.

But I also provide you with directions and tips how to make a diaper cake with lots of embellishments and accessories added. Thus you can make your own and really unique diaper cake choosing your individual design and theme. This kind of 'trimmed' cake is the ideal baby shower centerpiece and a real eyecatcher!
