Dinosaur Cake

Compass group, (our church's version of small group) was at our house this week and I thought that I might try to make a really cute cake I found online. Here is the product of this little thought.....

The original cake was a chocolate one I think, so I substituted blueberries and strawberries for the chocolate decorations. A little bit more summery and a little healthier or so I tell myself. I had to have something to balance out all the cream cheese.
Blueberry Cream Cheese Cake...baked fresh in the stoneware pan Mamaw gave me. :)

Green cream cheese frosting

The two round cakes after I free-hand carved them into the dino shape.

The finished product!

My bowl of fresh blueberries, the frosting, and my hot cup of water with which I cleaned my spatula between smoothings. Ha! What a professional, right? :D

So, if you know anyone in the market for a cheap, specialty, cake made with great love in the central arkansas area, send 'em my direction. :D

It sure was fun to spend the day in the kitchen. The cake turned out pretty cute and it was pretty tasty. I felt that it was a rewarding project. :)
