Dinosaur Cakes for a friends’ daughter’s birthday
This is the dragon or dinosaur cakes that I made for a friends’ daughter’s birthday. I used the Wilton Teddy Bear pan for the body. I cut the ears off of the cake after it’s baked and then I used the Wilton wonder mold for the tail. I cut the cake from the wonder mold in half long ways and stuck it upside down to the back of the bear with butter cream frosting. Then I continued using pieces from the rest of the wonder mold cake to form the tail.
It’s best if you use white cake in these molds because they come out better and even better if you reduce the amount of oil in your cake to one tablespoon instead of however much it says on the box!
To make buttercream frosting:
Beat the butter and the shortening together first, then the vanilla, and gradually add in the sugar until thick. It will seem dry until you put just the right amount of milk in, but do that gradually too, because you want it to keep its stiffness.
Color most of your frosting green, but make sure to save a little white for the eyes and then just heap the frosting into a disposable icing bag with the large star tip and go to town. The stripes are optional!
Explore Ideas with Dinosaur Cakes
I recommend doing the mouth and nostrils with your black frosting first because they are easier to frost around. When you’re all done with the body and the face, THEN you put the eyes on. You just put a little white frosting on where the eyes go and get your finger wet with water and smooth it out; I used black frosting from the store bought tube for the middles of the eyes.
For the spikes, I melted some vanilla candy melts (you can use any color) and used a spoon to put the melted candy on wax paper in a triangle shape. When they cool they harden (you can speed up cooling by sticking them in the freezer for a few minutes) then you have to sort of push them into the cake, and make sure they’re not too thick, because the weight will pull them off of the cake.
The things you need for this cake are as follows:
It really is easier than it looks; it just takes time and patience.
