  • Prepare cake mix according to package directions for 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cut cake as shown in illustration.

  • Frost cake with remaining whipped topping. Decorate with assorted candies.

Fun Idea

Take a table knife and run it through the frosted cake before positioning the candies to give dinosaur a scaly or wrinkly skin.

    I made this cake for my nephews 4th birthday and it was a huge hit. I made the icing a green colour and then deocarted the cake with lots of different candies;I even gave the dinosaur teeth. I decorated the leftover cake pieces as an erupting volcano.

    I couldn't find frozen whipped cream so I used fresh one. It looked good for a while but later the jellybean looses its color. The dinosaur became dirty. ;-( Maybe it shoud be made with frozen whipped cream after all.

    Great template that was easily increased to fit a 9 x 13 cake. My little 4 year summed it up best "Wow". Thanks. My only suggestion is to keep adding onto the theme cake section, I'll be needing more ideas in less than a month for my 2 year old's birthday.
