After lots of thought, I decided to abandon the dinosaur cake... What if the cake doesn't turn out right? What if the icing is horrible? Assuming I'm successful, how will I bring the cake to big one's school? Yes, yes, as you can see, I'm a worrier type...
So, I planned something different. It still involved dinosaurs, and if it failed, I wouldn't feel so bad about wasting (throwing away) everything I was going to make. Here's my plan: cupcakes with dinosaur decoration!
Step 1: Make chocolate dinosaurs
Note: Cupcake and icing recipe can be found here
Big one was very happy to see these when he came home from school!! A few days later, there was only one dinosaur cup cake left but big one kept saying he didn't want to eat it. Why? "I want to keep it for my birthday!", he said.
"Don't worry, you can eat it. I'll make more of this again for your birthday". (Birthday is a few months away) *tired but happy Mummy*
