Rainbow Birthday Dino Cake
My best friend's 20th birthday coincided with her having to move into a new apartment, and she was kinda sad that she wouldn't get to do anything for her birthday. She requested that I make her a cake anyways, but I decided to make her an awesome cake. I was going to make her a cake in the shape of a couch that said "Real friends help you move" or something but the test cake I made refused to stand up straight so I scrapped that idea and came up with a dino cake since she loves dinosaurs. After that decision, I found this awesome cake http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=258219.0
and incorporated it into my dino cake.
I got the image (to use to carve the cake) from the Wilton website because I couldn't find the dinosaur cake pan in the stores. The sides are really sloppily iced cuz I'm horrible at side-icing.
Also, the light green parts were supposed to be little stars filled in but either my icing was too thin (it was medium consistency buttercream) or my tips are too low quality. I don't know.
I also decorated the top of the cake box with sharpies with the image of a robot doing the robot dance (she loves robots too.)
She didn't really make that big of a deal about it, but she and her boyfriend did say that it was, and I quote, "Awesome." And her boyfriend asked why I wasn't working at a bakery haha. AND! She said after the cake is gone, she's putting the cakebox on the mantel as artwork haha
