So I’m sure most of you have noticed but in case you haven’t I would like to announce that my new DIY obsession is  making DSC 1637.NEF Copy 300x266 DIY Motorcycle Diaper CakeDiaper Cakes. This DIY Motorcycle Diaper Cake is definitely one of my favorites, my husband thinks this is the coolest one I’ve made thus far, but I seriously love them all!! I think Diaper Cakes are so much fun and absolutely love that they are not only a fabulous baby shower gift full of items all new moms are sure to make good use of once their precious baby arrives, but they make the perfect baby shower centerpiece. I know I’ve said this with every diaper cake tutorial I’ve shared but it’s the truth and when I feel strongly about something I can’t help but get excited!! Can you hear (read) my enthusiasm? icon smile DIY Motorcycle Diaper Cake

I honestly have thought about potentially making and selling diaper cakes (I love them that much); however I have no idea what the market is for them, so if any of you have any thoughts or insight I’d greatly appreciate your opinion/feedback on the Diaper Cake market icon smile DIY Motorcycle Diaper Cake

Okay,  back to business, are you ready to get started? This tutorial calls for quite a few items, but PLEASE don’t let that overwhelm you, it seriously took less than an hour from start to finish!

Here is what you need:

  • 1 pack of diapers (34 diapers)
  • 2 bibs
  • 1 bottle
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 pair of socks
  • 2 Receiving Blankets
  • 1 8″ cake pan
  • Clip Ring
  • Stuffed Animal
  • 2 Hair bows (if for a girl)

Step 1: Start by placing 3 diapers horizontally into your cake pan. I staggered them so the first one is slightly longer than the second diaper and the third diaper is slightly shorter than the second diaper.

Step 2: Take 6 additional diapers and place them into the cake pan (I staggered them as well, but only by a tiny bit)

Step 3: Take the remaining 8 diapers and stagger them in the cake pan. As you get to the last few diapers you will need to curl them so they fit (I hope this makes sense)!!

Step 4: Once you have all 17 diapers in the cake pan you will take the first diaper you placed in the cake pan and pull it towards the last diaper

Step 5: Continue pulling the first few diapers you placed into the cake pan towards the last diaper.

Step 20: Stuff the socks with tissue paper

Step 21: Place one sock on each side of the receiving blanket (they will serve as the handle bars) and place the bottle under the clip ring. I think it works better if you use a smaller bottle.
