Cute Homemade Dorothy the Dino Cake

The Dorothy the Dinosaur cake was a butter cake packet mix x 2. I used the Wilton tin for Barney and downloaded a picture of Dorothy from The Wiggles website, enlarged it, traced it onto baking paper and used it as a guide.

Dorothy’s teeth were a bit tricky, I think you need to make sure they aren’t too big or too many. It took around 3 hours to ice this cake, it was a bit rough in spots but as it was summer and I had to keep putting the the buttercream icing in the fridge to cool down as piping, it got sloppy quickly. The late night paid off and my 2 year old daughter loved it!

  1. Hi There,

    I’m about to attempt to make this for my daughter’s first birthday as her eyes light up when Dorothy comes on TV! I’m going to use a Barney tin as well, Did you use the Wilton one? and do you still have the picture you used as a template? if so could you email it to me
