Baby shower gift: diaper cake themes

Looking for a unique idea for a baby shower gift? If you are like me when you go shopping for the expectant mother and her little bundle of joy you see lots of cute items you want her to have. But you think this doesn't go together at all. Or you find out the mom has a theme for the baby's room and you are inspired to keep your gift along the same lines. After-all, she likes that theme so why not get her something you know she will love?

Mom's and Dad's get the fun of choosing a theme for the baby's room and maybe even for the shower so now it's your turn to take it to the next level. There are classic theme's for example: Rubber Ducks, Owls, Baseball or Team sports, animal prints and safari as well as the classic pink and blue.

The concept of the diaper cake is not new. Here are a few things to keep in mind. It takes about 55-60 diapers to make a small cake when using the newborn size. This is generally one package. If you need bigger diapers you'll need more packs, be sure to check the quantity on the side of the diapers.

Also you will need a frame and a base. Often picking up a towel, blanket or boxing a clothing item will serve well.

The trim is what really makes the cake stand out. Adding a ribbon or covering the cake with a towel or a sheet and tying ribbon add a nice touch too.
