Dinosaur Cake


I made this cake this past weekend for a little boy turning 2 who loves dinosaurs of all kinds. I love this color for the dino. I planned to add more decorations to it like dots or scales.... but I didn't want it to look too much like a dragon. Then I just fell in love with the plain red dino with the happy dino face.

Here's what his mom wrote me that evening "Big success...rhys loved it...once we cut the tail (boo hoo)...he hugged him and kissed him. We have pics!!!! Thanks a ton!"

I am excited to see their pictures. And here is a picture of the cake pre-fondant. The cake is Chocolate Sour Cream with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream.

This is just adorable. The color red is so perfect!! Great idea and seems really easy to cover in fondant.

this cake is amazing! :)
can you give me some tips on how you got the dinosaur shape? did you cut the middle then piece together the tail and head, etc?

@Faith Thanks! I made this cake so long ago. I don't really remember - but I'm sure I carved the body first and then added the tail, neck and head with the remainder of the pieces.
