Making the Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake

Choose a theme

Before starting with the shopping process, one will need to have a clear focus on the theme to assemble the cake. Few ideas on the theme include:

Choose a Color

Any pastel colors are perfect for a baby. Despite the fact that pink and blue represent a boy and girl color. Green, purple and yellow are neutral ones. An all white cake will be the most delicate and beautiful choice. Incase the sex of the baby is not known then the most appropriate decision would be to use neutral ones. Further if one is following a color scheme the items used to decorate the cake need to match the scheme. That is, it would be alright to use pink and white for girl or blue and yellow for boy. However one needs to be creative out here.

Choose a Centerpiece

Top is the centerpiece of the whole diaper. Here, one can choose all type of things to be placed at the top such as a stuffed animal, flower, baby doll, ship etc.

Shower theme

Based on the shower theme one can decorate the cake using the same color or print as on the top of the cake.

For Couple showers

For this it would be better to use a range of colors and not ones used for girly showers.
