Dinosaurs Birthday cake
In my latest blog, I have mentioned that my son 3rd Birthday is due on April 8th. Prior day, he will celebrate in his school. On his actual day, I am sure he will be overjoyed at the Jungle Breakfast at the Zoo. I decided to bake a birthday cake myself and decorated it with his favourite dinosaurs (Oh yes, he requested for a dino cake). Tata, here it is.. This is my first attempt baking a birthday cake! I made a chocolate cake (after browsing Soooooo long for the perfect chocolate cake using hershey cocoa powder). Considering they are all little babies in his preschool, I reduce the amount of sugar in the cake and choose an avocado cream cheese frosting which is not only most appropriate natural green colour for a dino theme cake but it is also nutritious and healthy snack for little tummies I placed round cookie crisps around the cake and tiny raisin to represent the rocks. Very 'minimalist', I feel about the appearance of this cake. Perhaps, I should add more colours to the cake.
Not really done yet, it is a protype to see how it taste and look before the actual day of preparation.. Wish me luck :D
