Oh Baby! A 'Born to be Wild' Shower

This 'Born to be Wild' baby shower was filled with adorable safari details any mom-to-be would love!  From the decor to the food and cake, jungle-inspired elements could be found everywhere. 

 The star of the show (besides the beautiful mommy-to-be!) was the marble cake with gumpaste leaves, topped with handmade clay animals sitting in buttercream grass!
