I was enlisted to make a birthday cake for my co-worker's son - a dinosaur-loving 5 year old.
Which led to the creation of this...
The "beach" bit was made of crushed graham crackers, rock-shaped chocolates, and root beer hard candies.
I was going to do coloured coconut for the grass, but my client (!!!) didn't want coconut, so it's just coloured butter cream.
I also made dinosaur sugar cookies for the loot bags, which included a cookie, dinosaur eggs (jelly beans), and a dinosaur gummy.
I think I should just forgot school and open a bakery.
Dinosaur-themed cake, anyone?
