This is a great tutorial. I am looking for ideas for my sisters baby shower in September. They are doing the baby room in Dr. Seuss, and I think I can find some cute paper to use on a great diaper cake. I will have to practice, because I have never done this. I am a little nervous, but with great tutorials such as this one I am confident I can figure it out.

These make awesome gifts and have so many layers of fun items the mom can use for her baby. Clever and always welcome. Keeping this in mind for next baby gift.

They sure do make great gifts and so super fun to make and to collect the baby items to put on the diaper cake. It is so fun to watch the look on the mom to be face as she looks at each different item on the cake especially if it is her first child. I try and find items that are colorful or different them the same thing you see at store. You can make it any theme or color you want and if they are having twins then make two. Double the fun. They are so easy to make the hardest thing is to figure what you want to put on it. It does make a super gift.
