Dinosaur Cake

Photobucket

I have to say that I have never loved dinosaurs as much as I do now. A Dinosaur with a pink bow was the only requirement my client wanted, then I was pretty much able to do what ever I wanted. I love when clients get you freedom, they always get more than what they ask for. I made the dinosaur cake topper using fondant, for the number 3 I used gum paste.

On Mother's Day last year my husband gave me the Cricut Cake and I always try to use it as much as I can. ( by the way we got it on sale, since I refused to pay full price) I have the basic birthday cartridge and I was able to get the dinosaurs cut outs from there, but there are also really cute dinosaurs cookie cutters that would do the job.

             I think it is important to make your cakes look as good in the back as they look in the front.

Using small gum paste cutters I made the little flowers and the butterflies. I also used a mold for the "palm tree" leaves.

Girlfriend - you just keep on getting better and better! I love your cake - it's perfect. So you like your cricut? I've thought about getting one. Do you use their fondant, or theirs?

This cake is so cute! I love the little pink bow. I didn't even know they had such a thing as a cake cricut. I want to try my hand at cake decorating, but much simpler to start. So I'll just look at your pretty ones in the meantime.
