Delicious Sauropod Goodness in this Dinosaur Cupcake
It’s Make a Dinosaur Monday and today I’ve been checking out some pretty awesome looking sauropod dinosaur cupcake party favors!
Rianne Runs The Art of Dessert and Makes a Mean Dinosaur Cupcake!
Rianne over at The Art of Dessert was working on making a larger dinosaur cake for her son’s birthday when she opted to make some really cute cupcake toppers as well. Starting with Debbie Brown’s 50 Easy Party Cakes she – with an incredible amount of talent – created a pretty amazing large blue sauropod cake. As if that wasn’t enough work, this amazing baking mom went to work modeling three dozen mini sauropods to sit on top of chocolate cupcakes with vanilla icing. That’s a whole herd of sauropods…and a heck of a lot of cake too!
What I Love About This Dinosaur Cupcake Idea
I love so many things about this dinosaur cupcake idea that I’m not sure where to begin. There’s the fact that it’s a sauropod and, well, who doesn’t love a sauropod? I also love that Rianne went with cupcakes in addition to her big party cake because unlike Rianne, I am completely untalented when it comes to cake decorating. There is something completely daunting about the idea of tackling a full size cake with a slab of fondant. Now give me a few cupcakes and I am pretty sure I’d make a mean sauropod cupcake…or at least I’d give it a try. In fact, I see some dinosaur cupcakes in my near future. Will you be giving this great dinosaur party idea a try?
I’d like to give my thanks to Rianne from The Art of Dessert for sharing her amazing sauropod dinosaur cupcake photos on her blog!
