What is a Diaper Cake?

Diaper Cake is an arrangement of rolled diapers stacked in such a way as to look like a multi-layered cake. You can make a simple diaper cake using colored ribbon to match the theme along with some artificial flowers or just a themed soft toy topper.

If you want to go a bit further, you can decorate the cake with pacifiers, lotions, bibs, rattles, toys, towels, socks, pants, baby nail clippers etc.
