I have made cakes for sale before, but never a standing 3d Dinosaur Cake like this.
I used a glass mixing bowl for the body so I only used 1 of those and placed it on a 7" round cake to give it a bit more height.
I actually had to make this cake twice because I tried to rush it the first time and it fell apart...so do every step just like the Dinosaur Cake instructions say.
I used a chocolate cake mix, but I add a chocolate Bavarian creme to the mix. It keeps it really moist and rich. I used the root beer float filling and the buttercream frosting like the recipe suggests.
My daughter wanted a pink Dino with a bow on her head. Every one loved it! I will definitely use this technique to build other cakes!
From the editor:
Awesome job on the Dinosaur Cake. I love it.
