DIY Unstoppable T-Rex Cake

Unstoppable

And he’s another year older! He requested a tyrannosaurus cake or a meme cake. So after a bit of Googling I decided on the Unstoppable T-Rex. The background was meh, so I used a classic sunburst meme background.

UnstoppableA quick synopsis of how I made this rad birthday cake. 😛

  • Baked the very, most Perfect Chocolate Cake (really!!) using a 9×13 inch pan.
  • Froze the cake overnight. Added a very thin icing crumb layer. Stuck in freezer.
  • Downloaded the t-rex meme.DIY. Unstoppable T-Rex Birthday Cake
  • Photoshop is my go-to for making templates. Cropped and re-sized just the dino to print out on a 8.5x11 inch paper. Used THIS easy tutorial to outline the dino. Print & cut-out.
  • Lightly placed template on cake. Using toothpick, traced template. Carefully removed template. You don’t want to remove that crumb layer. I used a ruler to make the straight lines for the sunburst background. I didn’t measure, just eyeballed it.
  • Mixed my icing colours (Wilton Gel Food Colours) & carefully outlined, then filled in the icing (cheated!). It helps if you have a tip set. I used a size 3 (I think) to do most of the icing outlines. Having multiple icing bags and couplers cuts down on washing and refilling between icing colours.
  • Jumped back onto Photoshop and made the “UNSTOPPABLE” banner for the cake (Ariel font). Printed that out and stuck a strip of packing tape to the back so the ink wouldn’t bleed.
  • Hid the cake. Brought out the cake. Teen loved it. Job well done. (^_^) *pat back*

July 27 2017 Cheesy Skillet Biscuit Bread with Hot Pepper & Garlic Wine Jelly

#summercooking #foodie #biscuits July 24 2017. Today I noticed the chokecherries in our yard and that the birds haven't ate them all! 🍒🐦 So, with Apollo's help, I made some jelly and juice! I was always nervous about making jelly. I thought I would somehow ruin it and it wouldn't set. The jelly set perfect. 😊 Maybe it's because Apollo is such a great helper. 🤗👍 July 23 2017 Another book to add to my currently reading list! Wishing for the new Michael Crichton, but this will have to do for now. The Indiana Jones is Poe's book. Might have to give it a read too! 😉 📚⚘#bookworm Home! Back to the gloomy, chilly weather. Unpacking, cleaning & finding "presents" from Dory. 😼 Already missing my Ton, who is spending the summer with the grandparents. 😢❤ July 20 2017 July 20 2017 July 14 2017 Poe jumps off Chopaka Bridge!
