Dinosaur Tea Cup

I was asked to produce a cake for a Dinosaur Tea Party.  How’s this?

I tinted one batch of the cake batter with purple food colouring and left the other plain, sandwiching the layers together with pale pink buttercream frosting.  I carved the cake to the shape of an inverted bowl, covered that with buttercream, too, then added a layer of bright pink fondant.  When turned right-side-up, it looked like a tea cup, and just needed a handle.  The froth on top is plain buttercream, piped on with a star nozzle.  Then I decorated the outside with dinosaurs cut from purple fondant and added the birthday girl’s name in the same way.

She and her guests loved it!
