You’ve heard of diaper cakes, which are awesome for baby showers, but if the mom-to-be is hoping to cloth diaper, you can totally use those in a cake, too. These cloth diaper cakes will blow your mind.
The thought of a diaper cake may sound strange, but people have been creating them for years, mostly out of disposable diapers. I had one at a work baby shower, in fact, during my third pregnancy. Instead of using diapers, my co-workers created one for me out of layette items such as onesies and baby socks.
With more and more moms choosing to use cloth diapers, the idea of a cloth diaper cake has really taken off. You don’t want to load up a mom-to-be with disposable diapers if she’s not going to use them, but buying a ton of high-end cloth diapers can get expensive. These ideas for cloth diaper cakes use not only the more expensive types of cloth diapers, but also cheaper options woven in to create truly unique baby shower props that double as incredible, generous gifts.
Here are some of my favorites.

This bold and colorful cloth diaper cake comes from a tutorial on The Eco Chic’s wonderful blog. She used two different types of flat diapers, diaper covers and some themed decorations to create a one-of-a-kind party decoration that is also a smart gift choice for a mom-to-be.
