Dinosaur Birthday Cake with Saffron and Jane

Dinosaur Birthday Cake with Saffron and Jane

Level Best's Daconabake was asked to make a 1 year old's birthday cake with a dinosaur theme.

Jane from Artco was asked by the kitchen to assist Saffron to make the commissoined cake and they tested 4 different designs before settling on 1 final one (see below pictures).

The cake begn as a vanilla sponge cooked in a bowl to give it it's distinctive dome shape, then tiny sweets were rolled into the fondant icing which was cut and "glued" over the sponge, using sieved Level Best strawberry jam as an adhesive painted all over.

Dr Oetker icing dye was then used to colour some more icing to make details such as the dino spines, tongue and the grass.

Jane allowed a whole day in the kitchen with Saffron to get it right for the final cake and they had a great time making it. It got a lot of attention at Level Best and we understand all of it was eaten at the party.
