We are becoming big fans of diaper cakes! They are a great new baby gift for that special mom-to-be or a centerpiece for a fabulous baby shower. You can’t go wrong with a diaper cake because one thing that every new moms needs? Diapers!
Diaper cakes are non-edible creations, resembling a tiered wedding cake, made out of diapers and fun baby essentials! Diaper cakes have become all the rage lately at chic baby showers. Miranda even got a diaper cake on Sex in the City a couple years ago.
A great diaper cake company we think you should know about is Diaper Cakewalk (www.diapercakewalk.com). This online company is located just outside of Atlanta, Georgia, and has been shipping their diaper cakes all over the United States for years.
Available in 2-tiers (Mini Cake) to 5 tiered cakes, they have a choice perfect for any new mom occasion. The 2-tiered cakes are called “poundcakes” which consist of 30-35 (size 1-2) disposable diapers and a 5-tiered cake has 120-130 diapers. Most of the diaper cakes are constructed with premium Pampers Swaddlers, size 1-2, which fit up to 15 lbs.
Diaper Cakewalk also offers Ecofriendly Diaper Cakes that are constructed with Seventh Generation chlorine-free disposables, size 1 and Burt’s Bees baby care items. Another unique option, which we love, is the Diaper Sampler. Your diaper cake will be made with Pampers, Huggies & Luvs diapers, allowing mom to sample all three leading brands of diapers and choose her favorite! Since most moms become partial to a particular diaper brand, what a great way to introduce a new mom to the different brands!
There are cakes for boys, girls and even gender neutral cakes! Diaper Cakewalk has many pre-designed themed diaper cakes available from flowers to Jungle Safari to Under the Sea with a blue sea creatures shower theme.
Another really unique option that we LOVE is the Diaper Castle! Available in three options, the Diaper Castles are made out of approximately 80 diapers and shaped to look like a castle complete with roof peaks and all.
Don’t see the exact theme you would like? Diaper Cakewalk also offers a Do-It-Yourself option. You can choose from the selection of undecorated diaper cakes and you can customize your baby diaper cake to look exactly the way you’d like (with just a little help from them – a “Decorating Hints & Tips” sheet is included free with every Do-It-Yourself Diaper Cake!)
All the diaper cakes are gift-wrapped in beautiful white tulle with a coordinating bow. The diaper cakes are shipped to you in a large box with the “cake” padded with bubble wrap. Our diaper cake arrived in absolute perfect condition.
Diaper Cakewalk diaper cakes make a great gift for that special mom-to-be. With options from little “Poundcakes” to Eco-Friendly to Do-It-Yourself to even Diaper Castles, they have a great option for everyone. The cakes run from $35 for a Poundcake to $139 for the larger choices and a whole bunch in between. If a diaper cake was good enough for the ladies on Sex in the City, a diaper cake is good enough for your special mama-to-be!
