No party is complete without a birthday cake. My son wanted a Brachiosarus. Talk about a challenge. I looked on line at lots of dinosaur cakes but none were Brachiosaurus ones. So I had to figure it out myself.
First, I baked 4 round cakes. I used my hot cocoa cup cake recipe. I then chilled them for 2 hours in the freezer. I prepared a large cookie sheet covered in wax paper. I then began cutting the cake and gluing it together with frosting. Take two of the round cakes, slice off the bottom to lay them on their sides. Like shown below. These are the body of the dinosaur. With frosting "glue" the two rounds together and glue the bottom to the pan you set it on. Take the slice from the bottom and cut them into the 4 feet. Again attach with frosting glue. Then cut a tail and pieces to stack for the neck and head. As it settles the head with lean back more. We propped up the head for a paper towel roll made to look like a tree. You can then frost the entire dinosaur the way you desire.
Hope your Brachiosarus birthday cake is extra yummy! Ours sure was!
