I created two wrapped diaper cakes as gifts for a friend's daughter who just had twins.
While my cakes were primarily the wrapped style, I incorporated the tiered cake pans that are part of the boutique diaper cake style.
The wrapped diaper cake technique has you literally wrapping disposable diapers around a large tall object.
You continue to wrap the object with the diapers until each layer is as large around as you want it.
This could be something as simple as the center roll from an empty roll of paper towels, saran wrap or aluminum foil. Or add to your cake by having the core be a bottle of baby shampoo, baby lotion, baby bottle or anything else that is tall enough to support two or more cake tiers.
With the boutique diaper cake technique, you utilize tiered cake pans and fan the diapers out within the pans to fill them up and create a tier.
In my modified wrapped style, I wrapped tall bottles of baby shampoo or lotion, but used the tiered cake pans to help me size each of the cake tiers.
When I learned our friends daughter gave birth to fraternal twins, I wanted to be sure we sent the mother to be a gift. With twins, I figured diapers would be a much needed item. Diaper cakes fulfill that need along with lots of great extras in such a creative fashion.
I created separate boy and girl themed diaper cakes. For the little girl I used the nursery rhyme A Wise Old Owl, for the little boy, What Are Little Boys Made Of. Click on the links for more details on how I made each of the wrapped diaper cakes.
These were a lot of fun to create, I found this technique an easy one for creating a beautiful diaper cake. Since these two cake were for twins, I used the same style with the same "decorative" gift items, just with opposite gender themes.
