Dinosaur Cake

My oldest J. made this for her friend’s 16th birthday because he wanted a blue dinosaur cake. Who doesn’t love blue dinosaurs?

Since the cake was for less than 10 people, J. and I used 2 8-in rounds to make the dinosaur. We also needed it to fit on a tray that she could easily carry herself. If one wanted to feed more, the body could be widened and the legs/tail could be made fatter.

This was our first dinosaur – neither J. nor I had ever tried covering something with so many shapes with fondant. I think we could have made less seams but I am proud of our first attempt.
