11 Totally Cute Diaper Cakes You Can Make for an Expectant Mom


Nappy cakes became famous in the early 90’s, after a lady in the UK invented one by chance while putting away her son’s diapers. Her rolled-up diaper creation looked like a cake, and she decided to make another for her nephew.

Since then, people have come up with their own elaborate diaper cake designs to give as gifts to expectant mothers, or use as centerpieces during baby showers.
