Learn from Betty Crocker Kitchens, how to easily and quickly make a dinosaur birthday cake. You do not need a special cake pan for this recipe. She uses two 9" round cakes, to cut all the shapes you need to make the dinosaur. It is only required to cut out 3 shapes, and you can print the templates from their website. After the shapes are cut, you use the frosting to "glue" the cake to the platter you are working on and then spread a thin layer of the frosting all over the cake to seal in the crumbs. After this "crumb seal", you put on the decorative frosting and she gives some tips to make it look smooth. Once all the frosting is in place, you use different chocolates for the dinosaur's spots and spikes. A little while icing is used on the eyes, and also for the dinosaur's teeth.
