Dino Island Cake



Want to make one?



Volcano Cake: made using the Giant Cupcake Cake Pan. For details, see tutorial at the bottom of the page from My cupcake Addiction.



Lava: Martha Stewart's Chocolate Ganache recipe. Use white chocolate and split into two batches, one red and one orange.
Dry Ice: I found at our local grocery store, and I used a child's medicine plastic cup to hold the dry ice inside the volcano. I also used red food coloring in the cup, it can be seen the "reveal" video below.
Cake Toppers: Toy Dinos, great party favors too!
Island Cake: 9x13 Cake Pan then carve to make a more organic shape. I intentionally let the chocolate cake show through to make it look more like dirt.
Palm Trees: Leaf CuttersWilton Gum Paste, & Pretzel Sticks

Use spoons to help shape palm trees as they dry.

Icing: I used multiple colors of green, gray, blue & white. Wilton's Snow White Buttercream Icing recipe.

Back of the cake.


Here's how the reveal went:
