Huggies Denim Diapers...CAKE!

Whoo hoo! The Huggies Denim Diapers are on the shelves! Just in time as about 19 of my friends are having babies in the next few months. One of my friends had a shower last week that I sadly could not attend, so I thought I would send something in my stead. She's having a boy, so I decided on a cowboy denim diaper cake. (If my friend was having a girl, I would have done a "Diva" cake with a fuchsia and black theme. These diapers are awesome!)

The cake was surprisingly easy to put together. I followed these instructions (thanks for the link Sarah Jane). Instead of using ribbon, I found cowboy fabric that I loved and folded it to resemble ribbon. You could always sew it..if you are one of those over achiever types. Me, I just folded. The bottom of the cakeboard is covered with a bandana I bought at a craft store for under a dollar. All the fabric was under $4. I used about 60 diapers.

No, I didn't make the booties. I'm really not gifted in the sewing/kniting/crocheting arts. (Though I do tie a mean scarf.) You can pick up your own booties at Forever and a Day. (Really great prices!) Other ideas for decor I considered were plush horses and toy cowboy hats.



I used size 3 diapers so my friend wouldn't have to tear the cake apart right away.  Inside is some yummy smelling baby lotion.


So cute! You know Collin will be wearing these denim diapers all summer long. With Tennessee as hot as it is, a diaper is all my baby needs!

Adorable! Sadly I went to get some more denim diapers in a 4 and couldn't find any sizes anywhere. Guess that's what we get for living in a little country town. Should have bought more before.

As of last week i was convinced i was the only person to think these diapers were cute after hearing so many other bloggers bash them. I think they are adorable for the hot summer weather! Thanks for making me feel like i'm not the only one :-)

PS. The denim diaper cake was an awesome idea and turned out fantastic!

I have to say that this is the BEST diaper cake that I have seen. My friend is pregnant with a girl and before her due date, I just want to throw a baby shower for her. I am going to try making diaper cake and make her one. I’m really excited for the outcome.
