The month of April brings with it my sons birthday. This year he changed his mind several times about what he wanted his birthday cake to be, before eventually deciding that he wanted a dinosaur cake.
I set about constructing this cake the weekend before his birthday, finally finishing it the night before. It is a sculpted Madeira Cake filled with vanilla buttercream, and I used Rice Krispie Squares to form the head, legs and tail. The plates and spikes were made using gum paste that I custom tinted, and the cake was covered in a buttercream crumb coat before covering in Regalice. As you can see, it is a Stegosaurus, in a non-scary way – my son was turning 4 after all!
The theme this month for Alphabakes is the letter “B”, so I am entering this Birthday Cake!
