Dinosaur Cake

For Lexy's 5th birthday she asked for a t-rex cake.

Wilton "Partysaurus" mold
4 cups icing (I had two cups white, 1 1/2 cups tinted green, 1/2 cup tinted orange)
tips and decorating bags

I definately have respect for anyone that makes these cakes for a living or on a regular basis. My legs hurt from standing, my hands hurt from squeezing the icing bags and I'm completely exhausted!!

Treasure box

Lexy asked for a treasure box for her 5th birthday so this is what I came up with.

box from hobby lobby (~$7)
green paint
letter stickers
sticky dinosaurs

I used a sponge paint brush to pain the entire outside of the box green, I left the inside natural. I then put the letter and dinosaur stickers on.
