Dinosaur Birthday Cake

Scrumptious Sally was with me when I made the first of these dinosaurs the other night and was amused to find me consulting books such as 'Dinosaurs Love Underpants' and 'Crunch Munch Dinosaur Lunch' for guidance, as opposed to reference books with more anatomically correct images. Perhaps if I had used a more grown up book for inspiration my husband (on his return from the pub) would not have mistaken my triceratops for Gromit the dog. Never mind, the birthday boy was happy and soon set about eating his favourite dinosaur. It always amazes me that kids would want to eat such a big lump of icing, but they invariably do.


  1. I've been looking through your blog and have decidd that it deserves a lot more attention! Your creations are so neat and beautiful
    I wish you could teach me!

    1. Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I am trying to pluck up the courage to run some cake decorating classes. I will see how things go!
