Diaper parties are becoming more and more common as young couples prepare to welcome new babies into the world. But even if the parents-to-be that you know aren’t throwing such a shindig, diapers are a welcome gift in most households. After all, they are the one thing every new baby needs.
But why gift a box of diapers when you can go above and beyond to show that unborn baby just how much you care? These creations, some to make, and some just to admire (unless you’re brave), aren’t just any diaper cakes though — they take creativity and diaper folding to the next level.
