What exactly are the dinosaurs made of? Fondant? Brilliant work, that's really adorable.
Rachell Taylor - Yup! Fondant and some of the dinosaurs have chocolate jimmies for eyes. Thank you!
These are the cutest things ever! I'd love these for a birthday!
These are really cute :)Great job
Brontosauruses in the water and fossils? Wow, what amazing detail and creativity! These are fantastic.

I would just die if you made little scooters! Make me a yellow one! That's the color of my Vespa! Ooh I'm so excited!
The Scootabaker - Teehee, I think it'll be fun to make little scooters... most likely 2D ones!
I love your dinosaurs! They are super cute & have given me a great idea for my son's 4th birthday! Now, if only I could make mine look half that cute!
Tanner's Mom - Thank you! I'm glad the dino's have given you some ideas and I'm pretty sure yours will be cute too! =)

The colors of the dinosaurs are perfect for Joomla!'s colors - so it was a real treat (no pun intended) finding your shared image.Thank you so much!
These cupcakes are so cute. My son's going to have a dinosaur party next weekend. Can you tell me how you made the dinosaurs?
Little Bits - Thank you! =)AmyStephen - Thank you for letting us know and happy be-lated birthday! It is so neat that the colours match! Many thanks for linking to our blog!maura1016 - Thanks! I don't know if the instructions would be very helpful, the dinosaurs were hand-made from fondant. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll try to answer you questions. Thank you!
I guess what I was wondering was what kind of fondant? I bought a packet of multi-colored rolled fondant from Michael's craft store. Would this work or is there a different kind I should use?
Hi maura1016,Generally, any pre-made fondant will work. I'm assuming that the rolled fondant from Michael's is made by Wilton? This will definitely work and is good fondant to start with, but it does lack in taste. We would suggest Satin Ice or other types of fondant you can find at Golda's Kitchen (http://kitchenware.goldaskitchen.com/search?w=fondant&asug=&x=0&y=0)Sincerely,S&H
Hi there. Greetings from Malaysia! Awesome dinosaurs you have there. I hope you don't mind but I based the dinosaurs on one of my cakes on your little beauties. Of course, mine are crude versions of yours. LOL. Regards, Pauline.
Pauline - Malaysia! Wow, thank you! Of course I don't mind, I'm here to share my creations. When will you post your dinosaur cake on your site? I would love to see it!
Hi Sylvia,I posted the dinosaur cake last year on my blog under Kids n Teens Cakes. Here it is:http://paulinescakes.blogspot.com/2009/11/ultraman-sticker-chocolate-cake-and.htmlThanks and regards,Pauline.
Hi Pauline, thank you for sharing your frolicking dinosaur cake! They are very cute and I've shared your link on facebook too!
I found your dinos on flickr and followed you here! Stinking adorable, I made them for my friend's daughter yesterday! Thanks for the ideas!
Heather - I ADORE THEM!!! Thank you so much for sharing them with me! =)
Tu trabajo es adorable...Felicidades y mucho éxito.Ingrid
I just wanted to thank you, your tutorials are wonderful and helped me create cute toppers for a 4 yr old boys cupcakes. Because of you, less creative people like me can try and make neat stuff for our kids. Thanks again.
Ingrid Hndez. and Anonymous, thank you for your kind words. =)
These have got to be some of the most amazing cupcakes I have ever seen! You must have an amazing amount of patience!We have featured them in our 25 best birthday animal cupcakes at http://partycupcakeideas.com/25-birthday-party-animal-cupcake-ideas/
Hi there, these are just wonderful. My dino-obsesed son is turning 5 on Sunday and I am going to try my hand at making these. Question, I have never worked with fondant before. I have a recipe and all of the ingredients (including glycerin). Do you think it is worth my time to make the fondant or would I be better off buying premade?Thanks again- these are brilliant!
Hi Carly,I would recommend buying pre-made fondant. From the Wilton cake decorating classes we took, we used pre-made and our instructor told us that it was fool's proof if it's your first time. It's smoother, has a good consistency, and is easier to work with. Best of luck!Cheers,Sylvia
use the marshmallow fondant recipejust google it-it will list these ingredients-1 16 oz pk mini marshmallows4 tb water1tsp vanilla2 lb confectioners
Sylvia-Did you let the fondant dinosaurs dry out before decorating the cupcakes?Should you leave the fondant fresh so they are chewy for the kids? Also, I would like to know what size cupcake holders you used for these. This is a truly awesome achievement in creativity. My son and I were surfing the web for dinosaur birthday cake ideas. He was like, "I want those for my birthday!"Thank you so much for the inspiration!Maria
Hi Maria,Thank you for writing! Yes, I do let the fondant dinosaurs dry first. Overnight usually does the trick so that it is not too hard and the inside remains chewy for kids to bite (GRR) into.I use cupcake liners that are 3 1/4 oz, you can also find out more here: http://www.abakedcreation.com/p/faq.htmlBest wishes to your son, I hope that he has a fabulous birthday!Cheers,Sylvia
