I've been asked to create a diaper cake for a shower for a baby boy, and the theme is boxing (as in the sport).

Any suggestions?? All ideas welcome (even silly ones!).

Boxing theme for a baby shower? That's one I have NOT heard before!!

Maybe a little ring (as in, what they box in) as the base and stack the diapers inside? Maybe do layers of squares (like a normal square cake), bound with the ring elastic thingys? I am making any sense whatsoever?!?! Hard to explain I suppose...

Try again: Square layered cake. Each layer surrounded with the elastic boundaries of a boxing ring with posts in the corners...

Gosh, I suck at explaining!

That is a very difficult theme for a baby shower!
Boxing gloves, very tiny,
Cake in the shape of a boxing ring!
Good luck:)

Last try: Mini boxing rings stuffed with diapers in graduated sizes. Haha!

That's a good idea Cashmere. Maybe you could get your hands on some rock'em sock'em (the vintage game things) robots for the top or look at a sports shop for some kind of boxing ideas. Wow, what a different theme huh? Sounds fun!

Oh WOW! Good luck! I can't even picture anything except tiny boxing gloves. Don't know where you would find those however. Maybe use boxing action figures somehow? I don't know! Would love to see what you have when you get it figured out.

Make baby items(like blankets) from boxing fabric.You can then add this to the cake.Don't forget a booboo bunny,for all the pains the boxer will get!
