O diaper cake is one of the main items in the decoration of the baby shower, an event to celebrate the arrival of the baby and celebrate the pregnancy.
The ways of decorating are as varied as possible, the most common being 1,2 and 3 floors.
The decorations vary according to the theme of the party, but they usually include decorative bands, rubber bands, stuffed animals, pacifiers, baby bottles and more.
How to make disposable diaper cake
How about decorating your baby’s baby shower or giving a friend a beautiful cake like this? It’s easy to do and the walkthrough is really quick.
To start decorating the diaper cake you will need stuffed animals or party theme decorations, decorative ribbons, elastic, cardboard, scissors, pins, clothes and pacifiers.
The first step is to roll up each diaper and secure with elastic or ribbon.
Then it is necessary to attach a cardboard roll or something that serves as a base for the desired height of the cake in a cardboard plate.
To continue, adjust the rollers around the roll until you reach the desired width, securing it all around again. So, start making the top layers.
If you want more stability, place other plates between the layers, remembering to cut a hole in the middle to fit the cardboard.
Another option is to use rolls of toilet paper between floors. Being shorter, they eliminate the need to pierce the backing plate.
Finally, tie a satin ribbon on each layer, which will serve to hide the rubber bands and decorate the cake.
At the top you can decorate the way you want, using objects, toys, bows, flowers and shoes.
How many diapers do you need to assemble?
The number of diapers needed varies for each cake model. If you choose to make a simple, one-story cake, you will need approximately 40 diapers.
2 or 3 layer cakes are more common, but require a larger quantity. On average, 70 diapers are used for this model, making it possible to make a 2-story cake wider or a 3-story cake slightly narrower.

The castle model is very charming and allows a great diversity of composition, being used by boys and girls. To assemble it, a good option is to create a square base and, above, four diaper “towers” at the ends. Complete with cardboard cones to give the appearance closest to a castle and decorate the way you want.
It is also possible to make this model following the traditional idea of three floors, and then adding the “towers” at strategic points, such as at the top and on the sides.
Mini EVA diaper cake for souvenir
Souvenirs are quite common in baby showers, and creating mini versions of EVA of the diaper cake is a great option to gift the guests.
Learn how to make a beautiful souvenir model below:
- Eleven strips of white EVA, approximately 20 centimeters long by 3 centimeters wide;
- An EVA disc of the color used in the diaper cake, which will be the basis of the mini version;
- Satin or fabric ribbon, as per your preference;
- Bows or other decorative objects;
- Hot glue;
Wrap the white strips until they form a mini skirt, and finish with hot glue to keep from loosening. Do this with all 11 tapes and then start editing.
To assemble, you will need 7 diapers for the base: one will be in the center of the EVA disc, making the role of the cardboard roll in the larger model, and the other 6 will surround it. Remember to put them together in order to hide the glued part.
Then, make the top with three EVA diapers and finish at the top with one. Wrap the ribbons around and decorate with bows, decorative stones and other elements.
