Dinosaur Cake

Yeah, yeah, I know. Still no apron. Just haven't been able to drag the sewing machine out lately.

My mom kind of hired me out to a co-worker of hers to make her 2 year old daughter's birthday cake. Now the last cake I made I had TONS of help with! I really didn't do a whole lot for that cake, but my mother thought I needed to venture out and make a cake for someone else. I knew it would be good practice for the cake I would be making for my daughter's birthday in April, so I took the "job." I was so nervous but I did lots of research and had a design in mind for this cake and I also drew it out as to how I was going to put it all together.

Here is the finished product.

As you can see at the bottom of the frill there was a little bit of a "Rookie Mistake" in the wrinkles, but that was really the only spot that didn't look right.
The body and tail are made from a German Chocolate cake mix and the frill, head and legs are rice crispies. The last cake I made, I used store bought buttercream frosting, but this time I made the frosting and it was AMAZING!!!!! I just Googled "Buttercream Icing" and found this link. It was crazy easy to make and tasted so good!
The bow on the top is a real piece of ribbon as I didn't have any pink fondant. The whole cake is covered by the Duff Brand Fondant from Michaels. It tastes good and is easy to use.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
