Perfect Diapers to Make a Diaper Cake

What type of diapers do we use in our diaper cakes?

What diapers do we use for our diaper cakes?

We've been making diaper cakes for nearly 10 years. Diaper cakes look like a tiered cake. I always imagine a wedding cake iced in white buttercream. Trust me when I say that we've tried many brands and sizes of diapers. We always go back to the same diapers: Pampers Swaddlers (Size 1). There are a number of reasons why we use Swaddlers: 

  • The backs of the size 1 Swaddlers are white. This makes for a blank canvas for creating your diaper cake. It won't distract from any decorations you use & it gives that "white buttercream" look. Some brands of diapers are blue, which doesn't work well for a girl's diaper cake.
  • This brand diaper is flexible. This is very helpful when you're putting your diaper cake together. From my experience store brands tend to be stiff. Not only does it make it difficult to create the cake, but it can't be comfortable for baby.
  • Size 1 diapers are for babies weighing 8-14 lbs. Unless baby is born at the higher end of this weight range, parents are sure to get up to a week's worth of diapers. This is a helpful gift when newborns usually use 8-12 diapers a day.
  • Pampers Swaddlers give you the most bang for your buck. You can get a value box and make 2-3 diaper cakes from it (depending on size of the value box & diaper cake made).
  • Not only are Pampers Swaddlers frequently used in hospitals, but they were the only diapers that worked well for my kids. I tried other brands, but I always had problems with leaking or blow outs. 

We use Swaddlers in our diaper cakes. They are soft, have a wetness indicator, solid white backs and give the most value for your dollar. It's a no-brainer for us.

It's taken a lot of practice to make my diaper cakes look the way they do. If you want to try your hand at making your own that's great. If you want to save time and money let me do the work for you. We keep our diaper cakes simple with just diapers, beautiful ribbon and for some of our diaper cakes, a few adornments. We wrap this thoughtful baby gift in tulle with a hand tied bow. Imagine the delight on mom & dad's faces when they receive this baby gift from you. The best part? We ship all of our diaper cakes free in the US via ground shipping.
