Red, White and Blue Diaper Cake

I used 30 size 2 diapers, one 8 oz bottle for the center, a 12 inch round card board, and a 12 inch doiley.

I also used 1-1/2 inch red ribbon with white stars, blue crinkle paper and blue carnations with white daises.

I used a red, white and blue beanie baby teddy bear with a small round glass bowl filled with jelly beans.

The cake was 2 tiers high and was used as a centerpiece along with 5 more cakes(all different) for a boy baby shower.

Red Diaper Cake

by Heather
(Conway, Arkansas)

Red Diaper Cake

Red Diaper Cake

Dixie Jean's Red Diaper Cake!

You will need:

Two packages of Pampers Swaddlers diapers, a total of 176 diapers.

Start from the bottom and work your way to the top rolling the diapers and securing them with a rubber band.

Use as many as you want on each level to your desire, and continue working your way to the top.

I chose to make a five tier cake for a centerpiece on the main table and it looked fabulous!

I bought several different ribbons, colors that we used in her nursery to accent the cake.

Just wrap the ribbon around the diapers and secure with a pin in the back of the cake.

I used red roses to accent the top and the rose stem just went right between the diaper and stays secure so there is not any hot glue and the diapers can be used and the ribbons can be used to make bows for the baby's hair.

I sat the cake on a piece of foam core that I cut into a circle to set the cake on.

This red diaper cake has been used for two showers since I made it! It was very popular!

Dixie Jean's Red Diaper Cake
by: Aunt Diane

Heather you did a wonderful job decorating for Dixie Jean's baby shower. The Red Diaper Cake was beautiful and it just added so much color to the room. We didn't have a lot to work with since the room at City Hall was so big and the walls did not have our baby color theme. Your amazing talent brighten the room up and the good thing about the diaper cake, Dixie Jean will have plenty of diapers to use when she arrives.
I enjoyed helping you with the shower. Maybe some of your talent will rub off on me.

It's a sophisticated twist on the usual diaper cake. I bet it looked great in her album of pictures from the shower.

Critique of Heather's Dixie Jean's Red Diaper Cake design
by: Lisa Foster

As an active Art Instructor and I rate this creation 5 STARS!!! Heather did a fabulous job in her cake design! The cake visually "pops" by her choice of color schemes! She used greens & reds (complementary colors) to achieve eye-catching contrast! The added pink "tint" enhances! The black & white dotted ribbon adds an extra "zing" that screams "fun"!!! The solid white areas seem to be strategically placed to give the eye a resting place and add emphasis to the red roses. The roses that Heather added created the perfect touch, giving the work a third dimension which just topped off the aesthetic quality! Heather's cake is a contemporary hit!!! She used all of the elements & principles of design to achieve a great work of art!!! Rhythm, movement, emphasis,contrast, pattern, balance & unity are all there!!!
Way to go Heather!!! Job well done! A+ : )

Ahoy Baby Diaper Cake

by Morgan
(Litchfield Park, Az)

Ahoy Baby Diaper Cake

Ahoy Baby Diaper Cake

Ahoy Baby Diaper Cake

I used about 165 Newborn Diapers. Rolled each one and secured with rubber bands. I used a Bottle of champagne for the center base of my cake. Secured each rolled pamper around the bottle.

Found adorable "Pirate Themed" fabric and wrapped around each tier, added wooden Pirate accents found at Hobby Lobby along with cute colored ribbon to match my theme.

When all finished and set up, I displayed it on a large oval mirror and added baby products such as lotions, shampoo, powder and little outfits. For the topper I used a glass skull head with a little eye patch for some extra touch.

Last, I added at the top of each tier, plastic gold coins. Also, put the name of the "New addition". Along the base of the cake I added some blue confetti like paper (what you put in gift bags)for an ocean look.
