Baby Shower Cake Inspiration: Woodland Theme

The shower for Baby Beetle will be hosted by our sweet families in San Francisco around Thanksgiving. As a family who loves hosting parties, I can not wait to see all of the details and special touches that will make the day memorable and unique.

Although I’m staying out of the planning portion, one task I am inserting my opinion about is the shower cake!

Let me be the first to say that I am not a dessert/cake person.  I don’t ask for birthday cakes and don’t opt for a slice at events. We didn’t even have a cake at our wedding.  However, I think cakes and baby showers go hand-in-hand so the cake is a very important detail to me.

My family has a lot to live up to in order to out-do the cake I had made in Alexandria, Virginia for my sister’s Mario-themed baby shower.


                      It’s Me….Mario!

Because we aren’t finding out the gender of Baby Beetle, we picked a {gender – neutral} woodland theme for the nursery, which will also be the shower theme.  When thinking of a cake idea that embodies the woodland theme, I immediately Googled “deer cake” and found these beauties.
