I love the versatility of this woodland creature theme. There are so many options for decorating with natural materials and forest animals. Because it was a first birthday party, we used baby animals and a baby gnome on the cake.
The hostess spent hours making paper mache mushrooms for the back yard. The cake included a gumpaste squirrel, bunny, raccoon, porcupine, field mouse and baby gnome.
These amazing but simple gnome hats were mascarpone cream filled fresh strawberries. They were gone in seconds!
Here’s baby Mateo’s smash cake… his first taste of cake or sugar.
