Dinosaur Cake... Raaaaahhhhhhh!
Shouldn't have asked, I thought as the 7yo pondered the question; 'What cake do you want for your Birthday Party?'
'I'd like a Dinosaur Cake.' He announced.
Well, in the end it was quite easy. I baked two standard chocolate cakes. Then, having checked the Internet and a kid's cookery book, made myself a template of a dinosaur.
Cut cake, smeared it with green butter icing (unsalted butter, icing sugar and green colour creamed together, slightly loosened with drops of lemon juice.) Then adorned with Toblerone and Revels and a [craft - non edible] eye.
To be honest the real success seemed to be the dinosaur's Toblerone scales... but hey ho, son was chuffed to bits.
