I was wondering if there is a way to make a dinosaur cake standing on his hind legs. i was going to have the tail as a support as well..
will the cake be too heavy to hold up??. icon_confused.gif

I think if you use pound cake you'll be fine- it's dense enough to hold up to carving. There's a choc version and white version using a cake mix in recipes. And there's also the Hershey's recipe if you want scratch. You could also use RKT for all or part of it (maybe the tail) .Just make sure you use necessary support between the layers. icon_smile.gif

I did a dinosaur cake (in my photos) and used pound cake filled with ganache. It held up very well on a three hour car trip. Between each "tier" of cake (about every 4 inches), I doweled and then speared the whole body with a thicker pointy dowel which had been screwed into a board. I kept the center dowel taller than the cake then made the head from RKT. Arms were also from RKT. Tail was cake, which added a lot of extra servings. Hope I've helped and if you have any more questions, I'm happy to answer! Good luck!
