Barney the Friendly Dinosaur Birthday Cake

12 Feb

This is a birthday cake that I made last week.  It is an 8″ chocolate fudge cake with a Barney the Dinosaur theme for Robert’s first birthday.  The sides of the cake are brightly decorated with kites, clouds, balloons and a rainbow (which I love!).  The ‘cake drum’ was covered with yellow sugarpaste and painted in a cheerful, swirly pattern.  I was aiming to create something visually stimulating for a one year old.  The cake is off-centre on the drum to allow for the birthday greeting – a larger drum is an easy way to create a bigger impact without having to increase the size of the cake.

Happy Birthday Robert!
