Dinosaur Cake

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop locally only from homebased business Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I think it looks a bit like a lizard, but the customer wanted me to make a similar cake from a photo she found. The 1/2" core board base is 14" square covered with marbled fondant (terra cotta). I sketched out the shape on paper to fit the board, cut 1/4" core board to shape, then stacked up the cake & carved with the paper template lined up on top for a guide. Then just round the edges, taper the head & tail. I did have to add scraps to the back & head to make it just a bit taller. The cake was carved from 3 stacked cakes measuring (a true) 13" x 9". The approx. measurement of the body parts are: the head is about 4" round by 4" tall, the body about 10" x 5" x 4" tall, the tail about 6" x 3" x 3" tall. I carved the body & head together, piecing the tail from the scraps. I covered the entire cake with one piece of fondant. The feet are made of fondant, all the rest made with modeling chocolate. For the grass I used Bakery Craft #234 icing tip. The dino is hand painted with a sponge brush and airbrush colors.
