Thanks so much for all the great pics of cakes. This dinosaur cake I did for my son on his 2nd birthday. He loved dinosaurs and he loved M&M’s. I don’t remember exactly where I found the idea.
I made a sheet cake using 2 cake mixes, that way it would come out extra big so I could even it out. Then I got on the internet and found a simple picture of a dinosaur. I printed it out, cut it out, then laid it on top of the cake. I took a toothpick and traced around him.
Then I filled in the dino with green icing. I used blue on the outside cause that is his favorite color. He had a ball helping me sort out the M&M’s for the cake. I even let him put some on.
Then a dot for the eye on the last M&M, a little bit of decoration, add the happy birthday and the name and some candles and you are done! This was very easy and all the little boys loved it.
