He asked for a dinosaur cake for his 20th birthday-here is the picture he sent to me, asking if I can make one like it.

It was wayyy too much for 9 of us so I simplified it with two layers instead of the three and no sheet cake under the dino. This is what I made him...
Here is a picture of the birthday boy and a front picture of the dino

It was one of the easiest and fastest cakes Ive done!
Those little stars took me 40 mins start to finish! Thats including changing colour! lol
The orange spikes are made by melting orange chocolate melts 'Mercers?' I poured it out on parchment paper then when it was almost solid I used a hot knife to slice through. Some snapped but gave me the pieces for the nails.
I would liked to have made it closer to the original but John loved it and thats all that matters!
Thanks for the comments!
