I wanted to make my Sister-in-Law a diaper cake for her baby shower. I didn’t want to make a traditional diaper cake. I got an idea that I saw on Pinterest and decided to try and make her a diaper cake motorcycle. Since she is having a little boy, I thought it would be perfect. I took my daughter with me to the store and we rounded up the items that we would need to make the motorcycle. And when I brought home my bag full of goodies, I was excited to make my first diaper cake as a surprise for my Sister-in-Law.
A diaper cake makes a great center piece for your baby shower. I was surprised how easy it was to make. I love that the diaper cake includes popular items that new mother’s can actually use. If you are on a strict budget, don’t forget to find coupons for diapers and search for items on clearance. If you know that you are going to go to several baby showers within a few weeks of each other, you can buy the items in bulk to save you money. Individual items are generally more expensive, if purchased separately.
