Confetti cakes has an adorable design:

Complete instructions are in the book Confetti Cakes for Kids (I think its that book, but could possible be the original Confetti Cakes book). Either way, you could use the link for inspiration. Also, has some really cute baby shower cakes with animal toppers.

I did a zebra cake with a teal bow(in my pics) - do you know if its a boy or a girl?
The bow could be pink, purple, teal, blue, yellow, green - I think its a classy cake but also very cute! lol

I am doing the same thing!!! I posted pictures of my animals. I made them all baby-ish. Because the baby is going to be a boy I made the insides of the ears baby blue and the pads on the feet baby blue. You're welcome to look at mine if you'd like. I'm not sure if that's why you're looking for. I am making it a 2 tier cake with a waterfall in the front. I have dowels to cover to make two trees and I plan on making the grass a soft green like a pastel. All of the colors are going to be pastel. My cake is due next Saturday, I can't wait to put it all together.. Good luck, can't wait to see what you do!
