My 2 year old daughter is just plain obsessed with Dorothy! Very popular is Miss Dorothy the dinosaur with my daughter and all her friends. This Dorothy Dinosaur Cake was a hit with all the little kiddies at the birthday party and I also received many compliments from the parents too.
Overall I'm very happy with the outcome, and best of all it tasted yummy too! Making this cake was quite easy, not as tough as I thought it would be! I used 3 rectangle sponge cakes and joined them with icing. I then placed a blown up pic of Dorothy on top of cake and cut around it.
To get Dorothy's features right I used a toothpick and poked lots of little holes through the paper onto the cake to give me an outline. Icing it took the longest! For extra decoration a rose on the hat would have looked nice.
I am possibly THE worst cook, so if I can do this Dorothy the Dinosaur Cake anyone can! I traced the picture of Dorothy from my daughter's colouring book to use as the template. I used 2 x packets of Betty Crocker cake mixes for the cake, made the night before and refrigerated before I cut Dorothy out. The shape cut out really easily.
The icing was just Betty Crocker Creamy Deluxe Vanilla x 2 and I used food colouring for the green and the yellow. I found using a piping bag very handy for getting the colours on neatly. I used one of those black gel tubes from Woollies to draw the black outline. Raspberry lollies and mint leaves for the hat and that was it! Easy!
My little boy just loves the Wiggles, and I got the idea from this website to make him a Dorothy the Dinasour Birthday Cake for his 2nd birthday.
I just photocopied a Dorothy from a Wiggles colouring-in book to get the required size for my template. I made two cakes large enough for the template. The body is green frosting and I used white fondant icing that you buy at the supermarket and roll out for the white hat, hands, teeth and yellow dots. I just dabbed the white icing with some yellow colouring to turn the dots yellow.
I used black licorice for the outlining and black jelly bean cut in half for her eyes.
My granddaughter (3)fell in love with the Wiggles when I took her for the first time. She is from Japan and hadn't heard of them until she came to Aussie. I made a Madagascar for my grandson and she asked for a Dorothy Birthday Cake. We had a fantastic wiggley time. Sang danced treasure hunt and when the cake came out my little girl was amazed.
The cake was made from chocolate mud cake and cream cheese frosting. The hat from royal icing (my son made that), the tu tu from a hair bobble and the roses from sour straps lollies.
I made this Dorothy The Dinosaur Cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. I didn't like the standard 'head' Dorothy cakes so I created my own!
I used one of those dolly tins (not sure of their actual name) for the body and carved up a bar cake to create the head, arms and tail. I secured the head in position using skewers and used toothpicks to secure the arms (don't forget to remove before serving). Dorothy's hat was a large marshmallow and the teeth were Tic Tacs.
I sprinkled cake glitter onto the tutu to add some sparkle.
This Dorothy Dinosaur cake was for my daughter's 2nd birthday. I used a white chocolate mud cake recipe for this cake and enlarged a picture I traced from my daughter's Wiggles book and cut out the shape of Dorothy.
I used Betty Crocker's ready made icing for the green (adding green food dye). I then used white royal icing for her hat, teeth and eyes and queen writing icing for most other icing decorations, was actually quite easy to decorate once I had the shape etc. My daughter absolutely loved the cake!
