To get started on creating a diaper cake with ease, there are a few items that you are going to need.

First, you’ll want to buy about 75 to 100 diapers! If you skimp out on the diapers, the diaper cake is simply not going to look as good. You’ll also need a decorative ribbon (duh), rubber bands and safety pins to hold the cake together, a 14″ cake circle to hold all of your diapers, three different baking pans (of varying sizes), an empty paper towel roll, and some cake toppers.

For full directions on how to assemble the diaper cake, definitely check out the tutorial below!
