I have wanted to a Dinosaur cake for ever! He was planned as a cute cartoon Dinosaur due to it being for a 4 year old, just before I went to do his face his Mum asked if it could have scary teeth!! This cake was two circle cakes stacked and shaped with a bread knife to give a “hump” shape. The tail is also cake covered fondant. The head is all fondant, as it the scales. I added some CMC powder to the fondant and made the scales about a week ahead and let them dry. I scored both sides with a toothpick to give them some texture. This was my first shaped cake and I was pretty happy with the final product. The scales were made in advance and dried, they really completed the cake when I put them in.
