Diaper cakes are a practical and cute present to give to an expecting or new mom. The only problem with them is that they may look too nice for the proud mom to take apart!

They are simple to make, and don’t require any special ingredients other than diapers - cloth or disposable - ribbons, a baby bottle and empty toilet rolls for convenience. A baby blanket is used for the trike’s handlebars, a bib for the front fender and the ‘cake’ can be decorated with teething rings and other baby toys.

You will need one or two packets of diapers - it is better to have more than needed than fewer, and any extra can always be given to the mother separately.

The steps are easy to follow;

- To create the tricycle’s three wheels, build up three layers with the diapers; one larger than the others, for the front wheel. It is here where it may make the job easier to use a toilet roll as the base.
- Once you have created three triangular-shaped wheels, wrap ribbon around the front of them, typing it into the toilet rolls.
- The handlebars are created from a baby blanket tightly wrapped around itself. Tie to the front wheel using more ribbon and bend towards the seat. Baby socks or gloves can be used to create ‘handles’ on the ends.
- Tuck the baby bottle between the front wheel and handlebars, to make it look like the front headlight.
- Use bibs for the front fender and the seat of the trike, and you’re done!

Open the package of diapers. Roll each diaper beginning at the bottom up to the top. Secure the rolled diaper with a piece of tape. Divide the rolled diapers in half to create two wheels. Begin by standing the diapers up, placing them next to each other to create a snug circle. Tie a piece of ribbon around the circumference of the wheel to hold the diapers in place. Repeat for the second wheel.
Carefully fold both of the receiving blankets lengthwise in half. Fold lengthwise three more times. Set one of the blankets aside. Thread the other blanket through the middle of the front wheel and through the middle of the back wheel. Secure the blanket with a diaper pin.
Lay the bib on top of the front wheel so it acts as a wheel cover. Attach the bib to the ribbon on the wheel so it will stay secure. Thread the folded blanket that set aside through the middle of the front wheel; this will be the handlebars. Set a bottle with the bottom facing forward on top of the bib to serve as the bicycle headlight. Bring the ends of the blanket up and cross over the bottle to secure it in place, creating handlebars. Tie with a ribbon to keep the handlebars and the bottle in place.
Place a baby sock on each end of the handlebar. Lay the second bib on top of the back wheel so it acts as a wheel cover. Attach the bib to the ribbon on the wheel so it will stay secure.
Check all of your ribbons to confirm that the cake is secure. Place a stuffed animal on top of the bicycle for an added element.

If you mean a triangle diaper cake, just make a standard cake and cut it into two triangles, then put white icing on each one.
