Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 quantities Basic butter cake
or 3 x 440g packet butter cake mix
2 quantities Butter cream icing
green food colouring
toblerone chocolate bar, to decorate
green smarties, mini m&ms and skittles, to decorate
1 raisin
1 white chocolate button
5 cm × 2 mm liquorice strap
1 red mini m&m
1 brown mini m&m
flaked almonds, to decorate

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 22 cm × 30 cm rectangular tin.
  2. Make the butter cake mixture and spread evenly into the prepared tin. Bake for about 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave the cake in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  3. Make the butter cream icing and add a few drops of green food colouring, adding more as needed until the desired colour is reached. Using the dinosaur template on pages 80–81, trace the shape onto baking paper, then place on top of the cake and cut out the dinosaur shape with a small sharp knife. Transfer to a cake board or large platter. Secure the tail-piece to the body with a little butter cream icing. Spread the remaining icing over the entire cake, making it as smooth as possible.
  4. Using the picture as a guide, decorate the dinosaur’s back with Toblerone pieces and its body with the green lollies. Make the face by securing the raisin to the chocolate button with a little butter cream, then positioning it on the head. Make the mouth with the liquorice strap and red Mini M&M. Position the remaining brown Mini M&M as the dinosaur’s nose. Trim the almonds to size with a small knife and use as teeth.
