Is it a Boy or a Girl? Diaper Cake Ideas for the Gender Neutral Baby Shower

Is it a boy? Is it a girl? When the mom to be doesn’t know (or doesn’t want to reveal) the sex of her expected baby, a gender-neutral baby shower is the way to go. But, being gender neutral doesn’t mean boring or drab, it simply means the mystery can be part of the fun.  From invites to favors, there are so many themes that don’t require knowing if it’s a boy or girl on the way.  And of course, don’t forget a key décor element to any baby shower - the diaper cake.

Diaper cakes make the perfect centerpieces for a tablescape at the shower. They are a whimsical way to extend the theme of the shower, and supply your host with loads of diapers, which she will certainly need no matter the sex of the baby! 

Check out tutorials online for how to DIY a tiered diaper cake, and then personalize it for the guest of honor by using one of these diaper cake ideas for the gender neutral baby shower.

Circus Diaper Cake

One thing is for sure: once a baby arrives, life will never be boring. Create a circus diaper cake by tying the diaper tiers with red and yellow striped ribbons that mimic the “big top.” Place stuffed toy lions, elephants, and tigers around the cake and atop the lower layers, and finish with a plush clown doll. 

Rubber Ducky Diaper Cake

Bath time will be a part of the new parents' nighttime routine for a very long time. Create a rubber ducky diaper cake by wrapping the diaper tiers in yellow ribbon and arranging various styles of rubber ducks on top of the layers. You can play up the bath theme by putting together a few bath time essentials such as small, soft washcloths, mild baby soap, and baby lotion in a mini bath caddy that tops the cake.

What Will the Baby Bee Diaper Cake

Don’t know what the sex of baby will "bee"? Turn the mystery into a pun with a bumblebee theme. Use yellow polka dot ribbon to encircle the diapers, and bumble bee printables to decorate the cake. Then top with a jar of honey or a small bunch of fake flowers for an extra sweet touch.  

Blue and Pink Diaper Cake

Take a cue from the hospital nursery wards that give newborn babies pink and blue striped hats so that they don’t have to worry about which baby gets which.  Alternate the decorating details of the diaper layers with pale blue and pink ribbons and top it with some baby necessities such as a bouquet of pacifiers.

Not knowing the sex of the baby is no reason not to produce a special and unique shower and diaper cake. Instead, use the mystery as a jumping off point for an entertaining and creatively themed celebration.
