Allergy friendly dinosaur dream!

Made for a boy's 6th birthday. Gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, and nut-free chocolate cake with chocolate filling and allergy friendly decorations. Frosted in dairy-free BC, molding chocolate for volcano with life saver "lava" and fondant "boulders." Dinosaurs and turtles were plastic figures. I don't (yet) have the grass tip or I would have used it. Still, I only do this for my little guy and he was pretty darn happy! THANKS!!!! to all the posted cakes I used for inspiration.

Thanks! I only do this for my son, but with all his issues I'll probably be making his cakes forever! I still have a long way to go before it all "works", but thanks for all the encouragment

:D Great Cake! I am gettting ideas for my sons 3rd birthday. He too has allergies.... egg white and peanuts. I feel your pain, but seeing their face is SOOOOOOOOOOOO worth it. I was going to try piping some colored almond bark for the spew of lava up top, but this is much cooler! :lol: :lol:

In response to the volcano question- it was molded out of semisweet modeling chocolate. Buttercream lava was piped on, the bag was striped to give it more dimmension. Life saver candies in red, orange and yellow were crushed, and then sprinkled onto a silicon mat and baked until they ran together. Then cooled and placed onto the volcano. HTH
