I don’t carve much, so this cake made me super nervous. Fortunately a fellow cake decorator shared a tutorial from CakeFlix for a 3D dinosaur that was pretty close to the original photo my client sent. Watching that video probably lowered my blood pressure and prevented some tears. I pretty much stuck with CakeFlix’s structure, but I used rice cereal treats rather than fondant for the tail and legs since I didn’t cover the cake in fondant. Once the body was formed, I covered the whole cake in buttercream stars, added some fondant accents and buttercream grass. This little guy came out so cute!
