Have you ever heard of a diaper cake before? Diaper cakes are the newest rage for baby showers.

So many things are constantly running through an expecting mother’s head. It doesn’t matter whether or not she’s a first-time mom. It’s always stressful, wonderful, exciting, and a whole slew of other adjectives when a baby is on the way.

One of the stressful parts of expecting a baby is figuring out how to afford the costs of everything. I know it’s a bit taboo to talk about money, but in a situation like this, it’s a very real concern for the bulk of new parents.

Every little bit can help, and baby showers are great partially for that reason. Yes, it is a lovely celebration of the creation of a new life, but it’s also an opportunity for friends and family to help out with the supplies — in a creative way.

One of the most expensive things a baby needs? Diapers. The sheer amount that a baby goes through really does add up after a while. But who wants to just receive a package of diapers? That’s no fun… unless you dress them up a bit as a diaper cake creation!

While you might think your gift has to look like a traditional cake, it can actually take on many forms. You can make a motorcycle diaper cake, an owl diaper cake, diaper cakes for boys, diaper cakes for girls — there are enough DIY diaper cake ideas for everyone!

These 11 lovely and creative ways to give diapers to expecting mothers may just make them one of the sweetest gifts of all.
