I have a request for a T-Rex cake. The customer said I could just do the head, since it's only to feed 25.

I have an idea for modeling a large gumpaste T-Rex head, and placing it on a square or rectangle sheet cake, slightly smaller than the head, but I can't figure out how to combine the two.

How should I decorate the square cake, to make it look normal to have a T-Rex head sitting on top?

She wants it to look more real than cartoonish, since her son loves the scary teeth and the scary look of the T-Rex.

Any ideas?

TIA!

If you can find a Wilton Megasaurus (2105-202icon_cool.gif cake pan, you could put it on the sheet cake. There are several for sale on e-bay.

Thanks, but I don't have time (or the money!) to buy a new pan. I was thinking of surrounding the head (which will be hollow gumpaste) with leaves of some sort, and covering the sheet cake in the same leaves.

I don't know how it will look, though.

hum I'm not sure....maybe instead of sitting on-top of another cake you could have the cake shaped into something the t-rex could be eating like a bone with some blood on the ends (depending on the age of the child of couse)....good luck
