I made this Dinosaur Train cake for my cousin's 3rd birthday. I couldn't find anyplace that was selling the kits. My aunt bought the dinosaur pan for us to try to make one. I had to change a few things that were on the cake pan to make it look more like "BUDDY". I followed the instructions that were on the cake pan, except for around the belly and down the back. I also made cupcakes to make it look more "girly".

The Dinosaur cake was a Chocolate Devils food cake, with buttercream icing. The cupcakes were a mixture of Strawberry cupcakes with vanilla filling and strawberry icing, strawberry cupcakes with chocolate chips and vanilla icing. Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream filling and buttercream icing, and plain chocolate with buttercream.

It was my first cake that I had made with having to use the different tips. I enjoyed making it and everyone loved it!

Thanks for sharing

Angela,
Thanks for posting a picture of your Buddy the Dinosaur cake. It was really helpful to me. I was asked to make my grandson this cake for his third birthday. I was thrilled to be asked but Buddy has a lot of detail and color. You did a great job especially if that was your first cake. Not my first cake but I haven't done very many in the last 25 years!
Thanks again!
Grandma

Dumbo Cake

The Dumbo Cakes

The Dumbo Cakes

My son was in love with Elephants and the movie Dumbo so I knew I had to make a dumbo cake for his 3rd Birthday. Since Dumbo is such an old film it was really hard to locate anything dumbo related to make or add to the cake. We found the stuffed animals at the Disney Store and I made a big cake for the guests and a little cake for my son. Both cakes are made from 2 stacked round cake pans. I used a stencil to create the star on top and then I sat dumbo on the star cut out. My husband helped to glue little sticks to the bottom of the star so Dumbo wouldn't have a bottom full of cake! This was my first cake ever made and I received a lot of compliments on the cake...it was hard to cut it :)

Coolest Dinosaur Train Cake 4

My little grandson LOVES Dinosaur Train on PBS, so I made him this Dinosaur Train Cake. My son had given me the train mold pan, then my Mom gave me another! Love it!!

I found some great dinosaur head candles online, and used a rock candy stick in grayish black to represent steam from steam engine. We have a “G” gauge Christmas train, and the tracks are exactly the right size, so I used several of them to place the individual train cars on the table.

It worked out beautifully and my grandson couldn’t have been happier….. until this year when I made him a Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon cake with grey and black M&Ms! I love my grand babies!!

Coolest Daisy Duck Cake

Daisy Duck Cake

Daisy Duck Cake

This Daisy Duck cake was a bit of a struggle. I took a square white sponge cake. Enlarged the picture (from the internet) cut it out and used the out-lines to form the character.

I used a plain icing and colouring. I first did the face and then the darker parts. I made the eyes of fondant and just added.

My daughter loved her Daisy Duck cake for her 1st birthday.

Coolest Domo Birthday Cake

Homemade Domo Birthday Cake

Homemade Domo Birthday Cake

This homemade Domo birthday cake was created for my niece for her 6th birthday. She is a big fan of this character. I checked out a few images and just went with it. I used chocolate cake, chocolate frosting and filled with strawberry filling so it was not too much chocolate (like that's possible!). I then used hard candy for the teach and mouth. The eyes are peppermint patties.

Coolest Fred Flintstone

Homemade Fred Flintstone

I made this Fred Flintstone for my friend's 40th birthday because people always say he resembles Fred Flintstone.

I printed out a picture online then cut the rectangular cake in the shape of Fred. I then used colored fondant to create the picture.
