My fiance has been accepted to medical school! So to challenge me, I have to make a carrot cake (his favorite) with a fondant topper of a raptor (dinosaur) wearing a cowboy hat riding a surfboard!!! Anyone have any ideas/suggestions/links to a tutorial that they wouldn't mind sharing with me? I have no idea how to do something like this (which I believe is why he chose it, hee hee). Thanks in advance!!!

What in the world????!!!!!!!!!!!! If that's not the strangest request I've ever heard I don't knwo what is! LOL!
I would do a tilted cake (single layer of a topsy turvey) to resemble a wave, place your fondant surf board on the wave (add some white to bring out the breaking of the wave), and as for the raptor, I don't even know where to start, my hubby did clay modeling back in college so he helps me w/some of my 3d stuff but a raptor? Ay!
Good luck! I would LOVE to see what you come up with!

Are you sure he doesn't want the raptor riding a shark with a rocket launcher? (look it up) hah.

I know, it is ridiculous... good idea on the topsy-turvy type cake, I like that, I've not tried a cake like that yet! And Jim laughed so hard at the raptor on the shark I thought he was going to make himself sick!
