This particularly cute one-layer diaper cake for baby girls is available at babyshowerstuff.com for $19.99 - the least expensive one I've seen so far. I think the company making these is based in Wisconsin. They use the same Charlie-Brown-look-alike doll for all their diaper cakes, they just have variations on ribbons and colors in their catalog. For the price, I think this is pretty cute.
A lot of designs I've seen incorporate some sort of stuffed animal in their diaper cakes then decorate them with goodies for the baby. The photo on the right is from diapercakewalk.com, sold for $49.95 - one of their simplest and least expensive designs. But still eye-catching, don't you agree? Wouldn't this look nice with all the usual pink or blue wrapped gifts in a baby shower?
I think it would make a great gift to all babies that still wear diapers. Want to try your hand at making these diaper cakes? wikiHow.com has a page on How to Make a Diaper Cake
- these are just the basics though, I think with these you can be as creative as you like! Imagine the smiles from your favorite mommies when they get something like this from you this holiday season.
Like I said, you can be as creative as you like! This jungle theme diaper cake is from lilbabycakes.com with cakes from $34.00 and up. I think this is great for the Christmas season, you can buy your diapers and baby stuff in bulk and you have 3 or so gifts from one of those bulk diaper packs from Costco.
It's also a great business idea especially if you know a lot of mommies with little ones. There maybe an economic pinch, but babies will be born regardless of that. I think the moms with young ones are a great target market when thinking of a startup in this economy.
Diaper cakes for the holidays. Happy crafting!
