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!
