Cake Tales: Scarysaurus

I got an email enquiry for a birthday cake for a four year old boy called Gabriel.  The brief was simple:  a Birthday cake for a boy.  He loves chocolate and he wants a dinosaur cake to scare the girls coming to the party.

I made a Rich Choccolate Cake and carved the shape of the dinosaur and the covered the cake with Chocolate Paste (you’d couldn’t get a more chocolately cake than this).  I went to work on making the tail, the head and the face.  I dusted the cake with a green lustre, to give him a two-tone effect.  I added lettering and candles, stood back to look at the finished product and there was just one problem…He was too cute to be scary.  Even my 2 year old thought he was cute.

‘Dad’ came to pick up the cake on the morning of the party and loved the cake and convinced me his son would too.

A couple of days later, I got an email…
