T-Rex Dinosaur Cake

ColeHattieDino-LR

This dinosaur was requested by the green-tongued Cole in the picture above. The base is cake, as is the top of the body and head. The belly and chin areas are formed from carved styrofoam. The legs and the tail were fashioned from Rice Krispie treats (homemade).

Volcano

The volcano was formed from cake and covered with modeling chocolate. The interior was a PVC pipe which held dry ice.

Dinostructure
This is the internal structure I built to support the dinosaur.

Cheeseburger in Paradise

CheeseburgerinParadise
This is a 3-tiered cake. The “buns” are vanilla, and the “hamburger patty” is chocolate. Ketchup and mustard are tinted vanilla butter cream icing. Tomatoes, pickles, cheese, and lettuce are tinted fondant. (As are the sesame seeds and confetti.)

The backdrop was painted by Erin Oquindo, my daughter and art director.

This cake was created for an end-of-the-year pool party with a “Cheeseburger in Paradise” theme.
