Hold up. Did you say diaper... cake?

Yes. They're a great baby shower gift, because new parents can ~never~ get enough diapers, at least until their kiddo is potty trained. And they make for an awesome shower centerpiece. Here are 18 ways to make one:

3. A topsy-turvy cake wrapped in fun, colorful ribbon.

To make the layers crooked, you can tuck small pieces of plastic tablecloth between the layers (as shown here), or sub in a couple of onesies -- perfect for twins! Here's the tutorial.

4. A "fondant-style" cake covered in little baby blankets.

Blankets AND diapers? This is very helpful if you end up buying diapers with cartoons or off-theme colors on them, because it covers them up. Here's how to make it.

8. A motorcycle (or bicycle!) ridden by cute stuffed animal of choice.

This cake is loaded with goodies for parents-to-be: the headlight is a bottle, the seat is a bib, and the handle bars and body of the bike are receiving blankets. Here's the step-by-step.

14. An adorable gender-neutral cake and matching centerpiece.

This swag-packed cake replaces some of the diapers with washcloths, is wrapped in blankets, and is decorated with various toys and baby soaps. Here's the tutorial.
