Chocolate Dino Cake

My friend asked me to help her make this cake for her son's 4th birthday party. Considering how long it's been since I decorated a cake, I think he turned out pretty well.

Chocolate cake mix using two 8x2 heart pans. Sugar cookies for the arms, legs, and tail. Homemade chocolate buttercream and white buttercream frosting. Used star tip for body, spots, and claws. Round tips for mouth, eyes, and tummy. Leaf tip for teeth. Believe it or not, the eyes are ping pong balls covered in frosting. Just make your frosting stiff enough, and it works great!

It was so nice to work on something like this again. Happy Birthday Ethan!

Wow! All of my friends lately seem to be really into making fantastic cakes for their kids! I might have to either (a) hire you, or (b) buy one. :) We'll see, though!

The cake is amazing! go you.
