This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Doubling brackets doesn't work (probably because embeds are not processed like normal shortcodes), but encoding bracket tested and works fine. – Rarst Jun 11 '13 at 20:39

There is a special trick to do that with simple shortcode like [gallery]:


But I do not know if it works with enclosed shorcodes

EDIT: I guess you have to use solution 2 provided by toscho

write it as as [ or [;

If you have to write it from time to time you could use the Quicktags API
