7 Ways to Make Charming Gender-Neutral Diaper Cakes

Diaper cakes are not only a great baby shower gift but also a gorgeous party centerpiece!

Diaper cakes look adorable. They may look dainty and complex, but they are actually quite easy to build. You don’t have to buy ready-made diaper cakes because you can just make them yourself. All you need to do are diapers, some rubber brands, your preferred decorations and accessories, and then assemble them together.

What are diaper cakes?

Simply put, diaper cakes are made of diapers arranged to resemble a tiered cake. A diaper cake is a quick solution to brighten up any baby shower – and any new parent’s day. Also, the new parents get the benefit of getting a substantial supply of diapers, which their newborn baby will use a lot of in the coming months.

You are not limited to using disposable diapers either. You are free to use cloth diapers instead of disposables. You can even add other baby essentials to it like washcloths, baby toiletries like shampoo and soap, toys, and even baby blankets.

And with diaper cakes, you can make sure that aside from giving a gift that the family will surely use, you are also confident that your gift fits the theme of the baby shower.

But traditional baby boy and baby girl diaper cakes get old, not to mention they may clash against the family’s inclinations. Another thing to consider is that you may not want to be restricted to conventional blue or pink diaper cakes if the couple has not announced the baby’s gender yet.

There are a lot of gender-neutral diaper cakes that you can do yourself though. And these are nothing but boring! Here are some stylish ideas to follow for your upcoming baby shower.
