A roarsome birthday cake for any dinosaur fan!


  • 6 oz Unsalted Butter
  • 6 oz Caster Sugar
  • 3 Large Free Range Eggs
  • 6 oz Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • Splash Milk (to loosen the mixture, if needed )
  • 100 g White Chocolate Chunks

For Decorating

  • 100 g Icing Sugar
  • Splash Water
  • Green Food Colouring
  • Black/Chocolate Icing Pen
  • Mini Pistachio Meringues
  • Green Sugar Sprinkles


  1. Oven to 180C, grease the dino moulds and set on a baking tray. Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy and pale. Add in the eggs, then the flour and beat to a smooth batter. Mix in the vanilla extract, add a splash of milk if the mixture is too thick. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  2. Spoon the batter into the moulds and tap gently. Bake for 20 minutes until golden and well risen. Leave to cool.
  3. With a sharp knife, level the tops of the cakes. Turn out the sponges and place on a cooling rack. Mix the icing sugar with plenty of the green colouring and a splash of water. You want a thick paste to coat the dino but not hide the features or run off the sponge.
  4. Drizzle the icing over the dino and make sure it is all covered on the top surface, while the icing is still wet stick on the mini pistachio meringues to make the dino spikes. Sprinkle over the green sugar to create a scale texture. Allow to dry slightly.
  5. When the surface is dried more use the decorating pens add the features of an eye and claws and carefully transfer to a cake board and let him ROAWWWWWWWW!!!
