Diaper Cake Overview

Lil’ Baby Cake Diaper Cake Overview 

The diaper cake has evolved into one of the most popular baby gifts a new mom can receive. Whether presented as a baby shower gift, or sent through the mail as a welcome home gift for the new baby and its parents, the baby diaper cake offers the new parents the practicality of diapers and baby care items wrapped up in an adorable, memorable package.

What Is a Baby Diaper Cake?

So what exactly are diaper cakes? A newborn diaper cake is simply an arrangement of diapers made to resemble a traditional tiered cake. These cakes can be used in a variety of ways from a beautiful gift to a baby shower centerpiece to a fun way to have a baby sex reveal.
Lil’ Baby Cakes offers two different styles of baby diaper cake: a rolled cake and a folded cake. The folded diaper cake is the more popular of the two styles. 
Most of the baby diaper cakes offered by Lil’ Baby cakes have 2, 3, or 4 tiers. However, larger diaper cakes with 5 or 6 tiers are also available. Unless you are local to the Sterling Heights, Michigan area, cakes with more tiers are not possible due to shipping constraints.

Baby Diaper Cakes For Every Occasion

Once the cake base is completed, the fun really begins!  Each tier of the diaper cake is decorated with ribbon and bows to match a specific baby shower, baby nursery, or baby event theme. Some of the most popular are jungle themes, farm animals, and contemporary designs featuring pinks/browns.
You are sure to find exactly what you need, no matter what the situation. Having twins? We offer twin cakes for boys, girls, and boy/girl combos. Having a winter baby? You might be interested in our cute boy and girl snowman diaper cakes. Not sure of the impending baby’s sex? Our adorable gender neutral diaper cakes would be perfect. The baby has already arrived? You might want to consider our Christening cake. We also provide a custom diaper cake service for those looking for a truly one-of-a-kind design. Our custom cakes are offered as 5 tier folded designs.

Each of our custom diaper cakes is made by hand, and we perfectly recreate the cakes seen on our product pages, meaning you’ll get the exact cake that you love, made to highest standards of quality. Whether you need a gift for a shower, a friend, twins, adoption, or coworker, a baby diaper cake is always a good solution.

How Are Diaper Cakes Made?

To begin creating a baby diaper cake, we always start with a design created by the Lil’ Baby Cake design team. You won’t see our unique designs anywhere else because each design is original, and because we want to ensure that each diaper cake we make is wholly unique to us, we never outsource our designs.

Once we have a design concept, we begin by making the base with Pamper Swaddler diapers in the standard size 1. These fluffy, pure white diapers are the perfect ingredient for the cake layers. Our goal is for the parent-to-be to be able to use each diaper from the cake as soon as the cake arrives. This means that we work in pristine conditions. Each diaper is as usable as if it had just come out of the package.

To make sure diapers are fresh, safe, and usable from the moment they arrive, we construct the diaper cakes in a sterile, non-smoking, non-pet environment. We understand that this gift will be used by a new baby, the purest form of life. Because of this knowledge, we work hard to make our design studio have the perfect conditions for keeping the new baby happy and healthy when using our product.

Once the layers are completed, we begin adding the designs that make our cakes unique. Once again, we only use the finest ingredients such as Burt’s Bees, and Johnson & Johnson. Newborn baby care necessities such as powder, lotion, and shampoo make adorable additions that are also 100% usable.

GUND bears and animals top cakes designed for the inclusion of a plush toy. We’ve chosen the GUND brand because of their high-quality and timeless tradition of providing some of the best plush toys available anywhere. GUND animals provide a lasting keepsake the new family can cherish long after the baby diapers have been used, and provide an adorable playmate that a new baby will come to love and play with for years to come.

During this stage of the process, we attend to every tiny detail. No ribbon is placed or bow tied without careful consideration. Each brand we use is carefully chosen to reflect our goal to make the best baby diaper cakes available, and to provide you with a unique, one of a kind gift that you can’t find anywhere else.

The entire point of our process is to create a beautiful cake that can be used by the parents-to-be as soon as their diaper cakes arrives. Functionality is key. At Lil’ Baby Cakes, we guarantee that everything on the cake can be used, giving a wonderful package of gifts to welcome the new baby home.
