I have made a lot of diaper cakes over the years, but this one was by far the most fun! Behold, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter diaper cake, for a baby girl. Not the girliest thing in the world, but I think it's pretty awesome!

Usually I use mostly store-bought items to decorate cakes, but after a bit of searching I determined that HP-themed baby gear pretty much doesn't exist. Bring on the crafting!

On the front of the cake there's a stuffed Hedwig (purchased), a felt baby-sized student hat, and golden snitch rattle. The rattle is also felt. I used a tutorial online to make a ball shape, then freehanded the wings.


At the bottom I included bibs embroidered with 'Witch in Training' and 'Muggle Born'. Used my mom's Husqvarna Viking embroidery machine and a free font called 'Harry P'.


You can't see them in the picture above, but I also included a set of four onesies on the middle tier. They started out as plain Jane white Carter's onesies. I dyed them each with Rit dye and then appliqued on each house's initial. H for Hufflepuff, S for Slytherin... etc.


The cake also included store bought flannel receiving blankets, little socks with dragons on them, and a whole lot of Huggies organic diapers (around 60). I added a ribbon on Hedwig's neck to dress her up a bit before wrapping the whole thing to be gifted. Hope the recipient likes it!!

Oh, and here's a link to the tutorial I used for the little student hat: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/features/crafts/sewing/harryhat

I found it through the Leaky Cauldron, which has a whole section of Harry Potter crafts: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/features/crafts

That is probably one of the coolest baby shower themed ideas ever. I love how the diaper cake turned out. Very nice.
