Listen up baby-shower-going ladies: I’m sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, but diaper cakes suck.
I know, I know, they are adorable. Yes, they serve as both a centerpiece and a gift. I will admit to having given them as gifts once or twice. Or three times. I may or may not have even written a tutorial on a crappy old blog of mine on how to make a diaper cake.
But after giving birth to my daughter, I learned the truth about diaper cakes: unrolling 100 rubber bands from 100 diapers is the worst. So I beg of you, on behalf of new moms everywhere: enough with the diaper cakes… or, for that matter, anything that requires extensive disassembly, unrolling or untying. I’m looking at you, big ol’ basket made of rolled-up diapers or golf bag made of diapers.
Still insisting on the diaper cake? Here are some no-roll diaper cakes that won’t make the new mom curse your name:
- The Bean Sprout Notes’ No Roll Diaper Cake
- Slap Dash Mom’s Easy Folded Diaper Cake
- Pinner Melanie Brower‘s Diaper Package Cake
- Momaroo’s Folded Diaper Cake
Or, you could always just go with one of these jobbies:
Slap a bow on there and you’re good to go! If you want to get fancy, you could wrap the boxes in inside-out wrapping paper to make a uniform white cake.
