Why You Should Create a Diaper Cake for a Baby Shower?
The biggest reason to create a diaper cake for a baby shower is that it is such an adorable but practical gift. Take it from a two-time mamma, I loved getting diapers and wipes at my baby shower. I know clothing is adorable but honestly, I enjoyed clothes shopping for my babies. Having the diapers meant a lot because then I could use those funds to splurge a little on my kids.
Plus, these make for awesome centerpieces. If you’re hosting a baby shower, you can create one for decor and as a gift. Diaper cakes are huge hits.

Diaper Cake Motorcycle Instructions
- Fill the cake pan with 15 diapers (per wheel) horizontally to create a circular bunch. Securely rubber band. Do this for each wheel, creating four. Set aside.
- Place empty paper towel roll on one receiving blanket and roll together. Leave about 1/4 in on each end. Tuck ends of the blanket into the ends of the empty paper towel rolls. Do this for the second axle.
- Push the covered empty paper towel rolls through the center of the diaper wheels to create the axles.
- Cover the rubber bands on the wheels with ribbon by measuring out the ribbon prior to cutting. Securely fasten with double-stick tape.
- Put the wheels together and use a ribbon to securely attach the two axles.
- Take the Munchkin Dishwasher basket and cover it with one of the baby towels. You will want to wrap the towel tightly around the front of one side and bunch the rest of the towel in the back to create a seat. Use rubber bands to secure this.
- To create the handlebars and headlight, simply roll the second baby towel and wrap it around the front of the covered basket with the bottle in the center. Rubber band the top and leave the ends hanging to create handlebars.
- Place the socks at the end of the handlebars.
- Secure the basket in between the wheels and two axles.
- Place the stuffed animal in the basket and secure with double-stick tape. Embellish with anything fun. We chose to create a license plate for the back that was secured with double-stick tape. Enjoy this at your baby shower!
