this was for a two year old’s birthday. theme? dinosaurs. the mom who ordered it had seen one of my other recent cakes and gave me free reign to design the cake, as long as there were…you guessed it, dinosaurs. the cake is vanilla flavored with a berry compote filling, then covered with vanilla buttercream. dinosaurs were sculpted from modeling chocolate and the other decorations on the cake (plants, water, earth and hills) were made from either marshmallow fondant or modeling chocolate. the volcano was made of chocolate cake covered in chocolate ganache and the lave was made of royal icing. this cake was super fun to put together as i got to be so creative with all the different elements.
