My sweet obsession

Aiden’s Dinosaur

I was asked to make a cake for a little boy’s 4th birthday.  Mom originally asked to have a cake that would go nicely with the fall-themed party she was throwing for this special occasion.  Aiden had a different idea in mind.  He wanted a green dinosaur!  At first, I was a little nervous about the challenge of creating a dino and didn’t really know in what direction I wanted to go.  I scanned the internet for ideas and after a while, I decided on my design.  I loved the idea of a T-Rex popping out of the bushes – almost as if he was jumping out of the cake.

I didn’t want a really scary dino, but I also didn’t want Barney gracing the top of this cake.  I think my guy came out somewhere in between.  I thought having him chomping on a big “4” would be funny.  Aiden’s name across the front was large to give the cake a “Jurassic” scale.  The colors were chosen because they were cartoonish, like the dino (notice the party hat?).  I kept teetering between more authentic ideas and the amusing appearance that I obviously settled upon.  This one was just plain fun to do, and I am hoping that Aiden is happy with his green dinosaur.

      Thanks Wendy. You’re too kind. I’d never make it on tv – I’m way too slow! Those people amaze me with how fast they can design and execute fabulous cakes. I’d need special medication to do that!
