Hi there,
I have been asked to make a dinosaur cake, and this is my first one.
I am really nervous, and would love it if I could get any help on how to construct this cake and what sort of icing and decorating would be best. Thank you, I would appreciate any help at all!! thumbs_up.gif
If you wouldn't mind p/m íng me that would be great.
Thanks again!

Hi there here's a link to mine.

http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1616453

The body is half a wilton sports ball pan on top which is torted and filled and on a card. The rest of the body is 2 6" cakes sandwiched with jam and buttercream. The six inch cakes are dowelled in 3 places and the sports ball half is placed on top.

This is then crumbcoated with buttercream.

Icing is fondant as are the spikes which were cut using the corner of a square cutter. The head, tail and legs are hand molded in fondant. Sand is crushed ginger biscuits.

Hope this helps
