What kind of cake does a cake designer make for her son when he asks for a dinosaur cake? Well, my son Max got a huge surprise when I presented him with a 32″ tall brontosaurus for his 4th birthday last weekend. This year, he had suddenly become aware of his birthday and the usual customary celebrations. He began asking for a dinosaur cake months in advance. I promised him I would make it for him even though I’d never made anything like that before. I certainly had my work cut out for me! I knew I had to do whatever it took to please my biggest fan.

The end result? A birthday cake that barely fit through the doorway! Of course, I affectionately named him ‘Maxosaurus’ after my son. The cake was complete with dinosaur sounds, too! Needless to say, my son loved it and it was a huge hit at the party. I’m not really sure how I’m going to top this one next year!
