Dinkytoes Baby Gifts - Nappy Cakes
What is a Nappy Cake?
Well firstly it's not an actual cake.. it just looks like one!
Nappy Cakes are non-edible baby bundles with a base of Nappies (we use Pampers only) which are then decorated with baby towels, blankets, clothing and soft toys. It is a beautiful way of presenting lots of baby items together, rather than gift wrapped in a bag.
Nappy Cakes really are the latest must have trendy baby gift for new parents. Whether you are looking for a unique gift for a colleague or a superb centerpiece for a Baby Shower or Christening, why not choose one of our beautifully handcrafted Nappy Cakes.
Where did Nappy Cakes come from?
Nappy Cakes were born in the US and are better known as a Diaper Cake. Baby showers are held like birthday parties there, almost everyone has one that is expecting a child, and a Diaper Cake will be the beautiful centerpiece. These 'cakes' along side Baby Showers have taken off in the UK in the last few years. Here in the UK, other than the new baby showers craze, a Nappy Cake is more likely to be to given to expecting and new parents as a gift from friends and family and also given by work colleagues to maternity and paternity leavers.
So how is a Nappy Cake made?
A nappy cake is a bundle of baby items created to look like a cake, a beautiful way of presenting baby items to new parents. We use a number of Pampers nappies that are rolled up to make a gift tower (like a wedding cake), typically 1, 2 or 3-tiers tall. The Nappies are then decorated with usable baby clothes such as bodysuits, bibs, towels, etc. and topped off with a teddy or a baby bouquet.
