How to Make a Safari Car Diaper Cake

This adorable safari car is a great baby shower gift idea that any new mom will love! It’s easy to make, affordable, and gender-neutral.

To make this cake, you’ll need: a box of diapers (any brand will work), ribbon, string or a rubber band, and a large dowel or cardboard circle for the base of the car. You’ll also need other items to decorate the top of the car, such as a baby blanket or stuffed animal.

Start by cutting the flaps off one side of the box, and set them aside. Next, cut the other flaps down to a narrow width. You can also use a knife to trim off the edges of the box for an even more realistic look.

Fold the receiving blanket in thirds, and wrap it around the rack and bottles to hold them together. Once it’s secure, tie the bundle with string for added stability.

Stack 30 diapers on top of the rack and bottles, with the sides facing the front and back of the car. Tie the bundle with string to complete the car body.

Place 2 bottles on each long side of the bottle rack to make the grill and headlights for the car. Repeat this step with 6 more diapers, and make a second grill.

For the wheels, roll up 5 Pampers diapers and tie with a large rubber band. Hide the elastic by wrapping ribbon around each bundle. Glue them onto the bottom of the stroller, so that the rolled edges face the sides.

You can also cover the rubber bands with a ribbon that matches the theme of your cake or the baby’s gender. This is a great way to hide the string or rubber band, and it’s a quick and easy way to decorate your baby shower gift!

To add a little extra detail, cut small strips of polka dot, striped or fun colored ribbon to stick along the edges of the grill. You can also wrap a piece of ribbon around the middle of each wheel to create a tread effect.

If you want to decorate the top of your car, consider adding a teddy bear or other soft toy to add more dimension to it. You can also tuck thin items behind the ribbons to make them stand out more, such as baby wipes or rattles.

A stroller diaper cake is a fun way to add some color and flair to your baby shower. This craft is easy and inexpensive, and you’ll be able to find most of the materials at your local grocery store or department store.

You can also use the same method to make a car. Just be sure to cover the elastic with a ribbon, and you’ll have an extra-special gift for the new mom.
