WHAT IS A DIAPER CAKE?
Diaper Cakes (a.k.a. Baby Cakes, baby shower cakes) are unique baby gifts made with disposable diapers (or cloth diapers) and styled to look like a cake. Diaper Cakes can range from simple to elaborate and are perfect for baby shower gifts and Baby Shower Centerpieces.

WHY GIVE A DIAPER CAKE
Caring for mom and baby is what giving a diaper cake gift is all about. New moms need all the help they can get, especially with diapering her new baby, and what better way to help out than providing her with a supply of diapers. It saves her a trip or two to the store and certainly the cost of their purchase. More so, diaper cakes make beautiful baby gifts and can easily double as a stunning baby shower centerpiece!

PROPER PRODUCT USE
As with any gift intended for baby, parents should always inspect everything they give their child. At TUMBLEWEED BABIES, caring for your baby's safety is our highest priority. 
Parents should NOT simply hand the fully assembled gift to the baby. Creating Diaper Cakes requires assembly accessories (ribbons, pins, etc.) that are NOT intended for baby's use. 

Please read the caution tag that is on each product. Always remove all pins, retail tagging, tape, and ribbons before use with baby. If your diaper cakes includes layette items (blankets, onesies, bibs, burp cloths, etc.) and/or plush toys, we recommend you wash those items before use in accordance with the manufacturer's washing instructions.
