Dinosaur/Dragon Cakes

Happy 4th Birthday Cupcake #2! October 2006

This is another cake idea inspired by Family Fun. Cupcake #2 loved dinosaurs so this was a perfect cake for a dino-mite birthday party!

Cupcake #2 couldn't decide if he wanted a dinosaur or dragon party so we made both kinds of cake and we called it a dino-dragon party! The dragon's "cave" was baked in the Pampered Chef glass mixing bowl (the same bowl I used for Cupcake #1's Cinderella cake). I turned the bowl cake over, iced it with chocolate frosting and then put crumbled graham crackers on top to make the cave look rocky. I cut a little bit out of the cave and put a plastic dragon figurine in front of the entrance to the cave.

What do you do with a little extra round cake that you didn't use for the dinosaur-dragon cakes? Well, turn it into a dinosaur scene, of course. Frost the cake with brown icing for land and blue icing for water. Stick some dinosaur things from your son's play set on top and it becomes an instant Jurassic Park for a dino-dragon birthday party!
