If you're really up a gumtree, buy a ready-made cake mix know - from the chiller cabinet.

Then microwave the bugger - about 4 to five mins in a square tupperware or something, with clingfilm over it with holes punched in it.

Doesn't matter that it comes out all pale and inspid cos you're going to cover it in green gunk.

Then pass it off as your own. Tis what I do.


good luck.

Now that I think about it....

Just exactly what is a dinosaur shape when it comes to cakes. I mean is it three dimensional or what?

Still, am sure your dd will love it whatever!

They actually have his dinosaur in this set and next day delivery available on request apparently.

Save your time and money and go with toys on cake it really works!

Just to prove I'm not totally crazy I have added pics to my profile of the 2 cakes I made this year - Dino's for DS1 and Disney cars for DS2.

OK so the dino one looks vile but he was happy and it tasted nice wink

don't use roll out icing, bloody nightmare. Use butter icing instead. Much easier to use and far more forgiving wink
I'm just in the process in making DD (3 today)a 'princess fairy castle' cake for her party tomorrow and am hoping my butter icing will cover all the lumps and bumps grin

Good luck

in fact, ignore me, don't attempt to make the cake and buy one from M & S.
Am wishing I did that sad

I got 4 small rectangular ones from Tesco once - it was clear they were cut from a larger rectangular one. We just pulled the lot out from the shelf and fitted them together like a jigsaw puzzle (on the floor, blocking the aisle!) until we'd got the best fit. Then I stuck them all together using jam. Then I cut out the shape I wanted, added more jam where it fell apart a bit and then iced the lot. It worked (just), but the kids didn't notice.

Oh dear, I'm sorrysad. I think I used some sort of very fluffy icing so the bits which weren't quite flat didn't show.

I think you should post a pic. Bet it's not as bad as you think.
