ROAAAARIN' Birthday Party

We're going back
Waaaayyy back....
to the time of

Last weekend, I was a part of a
Birthday Party,
completed by a prehistoric cake!

This was my Vanilla Bean Confetti Cake topped with Vanilla Buttercream. I did an "airbrushed"/textured design on the outside to create a natural setting for the bold dinos. The top layer was shaved down to mimic an erupting volcano.

The palm trees were edible, made from Chocolate Wafer Sticks and a little green Marshmallow Fondant. The dinos were molded out of White Chocolate and hand painted to match the party's color scheme. See that dirt? Yep, that was edible as well! I mixed crushed Chocolate Teddy Grahams along with some brown sugar to create oh-so-yummy earth.

I also made some Rice Krispy Treat favors, cut from a dino cookie cutter and topped with bright orange, blue and red tinted White Chocolate.

This cake ended up being one of the more fun ones I've done in a long time. And, I learned a few new techniques to boot! That's the best thing about my profession - it's always evolving and there's always something new to learn!

Thanks to the sweet family that invited me in on such a fun day! I truly enjoyed every moment of creating this cake!

Happy Birthday, Miller!
I hope you had a roaaaarrrin' good time!
