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 these 3-D Dragon/Dinosaur Cake Instructions. (There’s also a YouTube video of how to make a dinosaur cake if you’re so inclined.)

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.
