What are nappy cakes?
A nappy cake is a beautiful gift for the expectant parents. Our nappy cakes come in various themes and sizes; 1 tier, 2 tier or 3 tiers and look just like a cake! Complete with baby essentials the parents can start to use straight away. They make beautiful centrepieces at the baby shower, at the maternity leave party or in the nursery, until the parents are ready to use all of the practical items inside.

Our customers have told us how much they have enjoyed taking each nappy cake apart and spoken of their delight when they unexpectedly find additional surprises hidden inside, such as keepsakes, baby milestone cards or baby clothes.
We transform baby essentials into maternity leave nappy cakes, which are also very popular for baby showers, gender reveal parties, and as new baby gifts to welcome everyone home from the hospital.
