This we know to be true: dinosaur cakes are like snowflakes. No two are exactly the same. We had absolutely no idea that when we set out to find the coolest dinosaur cakes, that we would be overwhelmed by the volume, variety and creativity.
There were so many to feature, it was difficult to choose just a few to feature here. We divided our findings into 3 categories: round cakes (by far the most popular), dinosaur-shaped cakes and rectangle cakes. Colors varied from the traditional green, to baby blue, to red, to pink. If you’re making your own dinosaur cake, by all means – decorate it any color you choose!
Last summer, I baked a plain yellow cake and dyed the batter a bright green. I frosted it with chocolate icing, then balanced tiny plastic dinosaurs on top for my older son’s 6th birthday. I thought I was so clever then…oh well.
