blue dinosaur cake
Before becoming extinct
I had nothing to do with this piece of art, aside from eating a slice.
It's now a tradition for Wendy to ask her daughter what kind of cake she would like for her birthday. Last year was the princess castle. This year? Blue dinosaur. I think it had a technical dinosaur name, but they've changed all these since I was a kid so I can't remember. If it isn't T Rex, brontosaurus, stegosaurus, or triceratops, I have no idea what you're talking about.
Whatever variety, it was delicious.
Looking mighty forward to next year.
I lifted these bits from Wendy to share:
The cake pattern was based on the 3-D Dragon/Dinosaur Cake Instructions over at Sweet Dreams by Stacy.
Wendy mentions that the sparkly sugars covered up any ooopses and gave it a little extra zing. She used Wilton Sparkling Sugars if you're interested.

I love it! My mom also made cakes for all 5 of us for awhile. She would makes cakes for holidays too. My favorite was the coconut bunny cake.

Absolutely love it! These pictures are fantastic. Reminds me of something from Ace of Cakes. They are new neighbors of mine.

Too cool! Call me a freak, but I love blue icing.
My mom used to make all sorts of creative cakes like this when I was young.
Great blog. Fellow Nati blogger here as well.
