Diaper cakes are non-edible creations, resembling a tiered wedding cake, made out of diapers and fun baby essentials! These diaper cakes make a fabulous centerpiece for your baby shower or a great present for that special mom-to-be. Diaper cakes have become all the rage lately at chic baby showers. Miranda even got a diaper cake on Sex in the City a few years ago.
One diaper cake company we think you should know about is Diaper Cakes by Becca. This online company specializes in diaper cakes that are sure to make that mom-to-be smile and be the hit of the party. Available from 2 tiers to 6 tier diaper cakes, Becca has you covered! A 3 tier diaper cake comes with approximately 90 Size 1 diapers up and a 6 tier with approximately 185 diapers, which we found was more diapers than many other diaper cake companies include in their cakes. The cakes are typically made with Pampers Swaddlers but Huggies or another particular diaper brand can be used upon request. She even has an eco-friendly version of her diaper cakes that includes Eco-Friendly 7th Generation Disposable Diapers and full sized Burt’s Bees goodies.
There are cakes for boys…cakes for girls…and even gender neutral cakes! A cake to suit anyone’s taste! They have many pre-designed themed diaper cakes available with brands from Sesame Street to Baby Einstein to generic themes like boats and ducks to adorable giraffes.
One of our favorite gender neutral cakes is the Orange and Yellow Giraffe Diaper Cake. The giraffe cake is absolutely adorable and features about 100 diapers, a cute giraffe vibrating sound plush toy topper, a coordinating giraffe teething blanket, a Gerber thermal blanket, a Carter’s giraffe onesie, yellow tennis-shoe style booties, 2 washcloths, 2 diaper pins and two yellow LinkaDoos. All the diapers securely form the base of the cake with beautiful yellow, orange and green ribbon that perfectly matches the giraffe toys.
Giraffes aren’t your thing? Don’t see the exact diaper cake theme you had in mind? Not to worry because they will design a special cake just for the baby you are celebrating!
We love that Diaper Cakes by Becca will even build you a diaper cake, send it to you, and let you decorate it! This type of diaper cake will come with printed instructions and tips on how to go about decorating your DIY diaper cake.
Want to customize your diaper cake but have them do the work? They have that option as well. They have the Design Your Own Diaper Cake to Suit Your Taste, Baby Shower Theme, Nursery Decor and BUDGET option. You tell them what you want, how big and what it should look like – and they create it and send the finished product to you.
The diaper cakes are shipped to you in a large box with the “cake” lightly padded. Our diaper cake arrived in perfect condition. A nice feature of Diaper Cakes by Becca is that all custom diaper cakes are photographed and emailed to their clients prior to shipping. They don’t ship custom cakes until their clients are absolutely satisfied with the end result.
Diaper Cakes by Becca make a great gift for expecting or new parents. Becca’s diaper cakes are competitively priced with other companies (yet include more diapers than many) and run from $60 for a basic one to over $200 for the extravagant 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!
