Jurassic

My sister asked me to make a dinosaur cake for her school's Dinosaur-themed Party. I have not done any carving for the cakes I made. So I was a bit excited to try it out.

Sponge cake would be difficult to carve so I settled for a butter cake. I doubled the recipe to have enough for the body, head and tail. I cut the cake horizontally. I carved the body from one cake; the tail and head out of the other. For the frosting, I added Green Apple food color to the white chocolate buttercream. I used Smarties for the scales, eye and toes, Hershey's kisses for the spine, and melted white chocolate for the teeth. The kindergartners went gaga over it. It was delicious too.
