Dinosaur Birthday Cake

Dinosaur Birthday CakeSomehow my youngest just turned 3 years old the the other day.  Everything about his birthday had to involve dinosaurs. From the decorations, the presents, his clothes and even his cake. He is ridiculously and adorably obsessed. He really wanted his party to take place at the local Dinosaur Park, yes there really is one, but we will do that trip on a later date. His party took place on our deck for about 10 minutes and then due to torrential rain we moved it into our basement.

He went back and forth on what type of cake he wanted. First it was just vanilla. Then chocolate. Then both and at last a dinosaur cake. I went with “both and dinosaur cake. I made a basic 2 layer chocolate cake using a recipe from the cookbook: Have Your Cake and Vegan Too by Kris Holechek from the nomnomnom blog. The frosting I threw together myself. Just the usual Earth Balance, powdered sugar, vanilla..etc..frosting. After frosting the cake I plopped on his favorite dinosaur and made a quick banner to make it a touch more festive.

Most importantly the birthday boy was so happy with it. There was a dinosaur on it! So thrilling to a 3 year old!  My birthday is coming up next and I will be making my own cake. This one! Maybe with a dinosaur on it.

    shawnzhangmusic,>> “for me it ended up that i mouse/key most stuffs but use the faders a lot”I think if one really wants to be able to fully grasp something like an ICON he would need to more or less get rid of the keyboard and mouse and force himself to learn it inside and out. But the learning curve sure would be frustrating!Roll,I can definitely see how snapshots are addictive. It’s dangerous to try new workflows, you might end up liking them!

    I grew up on a family farm and we all drank fresh raw milk everyday. My whole family is still alive except my grandparents who died in their late 90s.

They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”Qur’an 4:101 “The unbelievers (non-Muslims) are your inveterate foeQur’an 47:4 “Strike off the heads of the disbelievers”; and after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives.” just a few examples of hate in the quran. sick.

    In cazul jafului de la banca transilvania din Cluj sunt tinuti cei 2 suspecti in arest din februarie 2009 ( 2 ani si 3 luni ). Se pare ca politia a cam gresit cand i-a arestat si acum nu vrea sa recunoasca greseala si sa-i elibereze. Liviu Alexa a scris o parere avizata:
