Turn a round cake into a Stegosaurus cake.
- A large round cake
- A sharp, serrated bread knife
- Brightly-colored frosting
- For the eye, use a chocolate chip, a jellybean, or a dark M&M
Make the cuts as shown to the left. Wait until the cake is cool – it cuts more easily when cool. Using a bread knife also makes the cuts neater.
The large semicircle is the body and the long triangle is the tail. Use the small triangles for the head and plates.
Assemble the pieces on a large platter (or a piece of cardboard covered with aluminum foil), sticking the pieces together with little bits of frosting.
Frost the entire cake, and add the eye and other decorations (like contrasting frosting and/or sprinkles).
