My 5-year-old son, obsessed with dinosaurs, specifically requested a “Jurassic Park Cake” for his birthday. I scoured the internet, looking for something appropriate and do-able. Finally, I settled for looking at the Jurassic Park book cover, and just free-handed everything on the cake!!
The red and black did want to run together, but I used a toothpick to guide the color where I wanted it to be. I supplemented the cake with some palm trees and dinosaur figurines.
I took a LOT of time, but this is the gift I give my kids each year: a cake made and decorated by Mom with love. They are usually not perfect and a tad lopsided, but the kids love them, and they taste great!!! :)
