Step 5:

Ice your cake. You can use any colour icing you would like. We went with orange. I placed strips of wax around the dinosaur cake so that if some icing drops onto the cake board while icing it is easily taken away when you slide out the wax paper.

Step 6:

Decorate your cake to resemble a Stegosaurus. We added candy eyes and created a smile with blue food colouring for the mouth. We also used chocolate chips to create some of the spots. The chocolate wafers came in handy to create texture and brown smarties worked very well as the dinosaur’s toenails. The spikes on the bake to make the stegosaurus are Hersey’s kisses.
