Easy Dinosaur Cake Template
Hi hi hi!
Here’s my easy cake template for a super simple, but super cool dinosaur birthday cake!
All you need to do is make your cake of choice in a big, round cake tin. Print out the template so it matches the size of your cake as best you can, and cut out the shapes. Them use them as a template, placing them on top of your cake, and cut the shapes out with a sharp knife, holding it vertically. I also turned my cake over so that the top was really flat.
I covered my cake in a crumb coat, which is just a thin layer of buttercream icing, which is supposed to cover up all the lumps and bumps, and leave you with a smooth canvas to cover in your final layer of icing.
I covered mine with green icing, just made with water, food colouring and icing sugar, as my family isn’t keen on buttercream icing. Then I used a homemade piping bag (made from grease proof paper), to pipe on the detail in black and white icing. If you have a proper piping bag, ale sure you use a nozzle with a really, really small hole to pipe the detail on.
Here’s a pic of the detail, that I used to guide me as I decorated my cake.
