little dinos food cake

Pin It
my little Vin just turned two a couple of weeks ago and being a kiddo who absolutely loves dinosaurs (like I can't get him dressed unless he has a t-shirt with a dinosaur on it kinda love) we had a dinosaur party. I didn't manage to get many photos of the decorations or the food but I will share a couple soon. For the meantime, here is the cake:


I made Nigella's Devils Food Cake, but when the two cake layers came out of the tin, the were disappointingly small... so I made another two layers and we had a four-layered devils food cake...



The traditional icing it sticky fudgy and bitter which I figured might not go down well with the kiddos (not to mention my beige carpets) so I made chocolate buttercream frosting instead... I am calling this creation 'Little Devils Food Cake' (geddit)



I used the dinosaur party plan from One Charming Party and the decoration is totally their idea - I couldn't find the right kind of Jelly Beans I wanted, so I used chocolate covered raisins and brazil nuts and a few jelly beans that I could find.


Just look at his happy little face!
