Dinosaur and Pinata cakes

Let's play another round of, "What has Kelly been baking?". Well this month has been another busy month with cakes. A friend of ours has a birthday on Cinco de Mayo, and his wife asked for a cake. Adam thought of a pinata cake instantly! At first I wasn't sure how I was going to conquer that one. But after doing a little search online, and found this one, I knew I could do it! I was a little morbid when making this cake. I made it a red velvet cake with strawberry buttercream icing in the middle! At least I thought it was funny. Next, just this past weekend, I was asked to make a dinosaur and smash cake for a friend's little boy's 1st birthday. So I went with a happy green dinosaur. And since I had a little left over batter and frosting, I had fun practicing with some cute cupcakes!

The Green spots on the dino are melted candy melts, along with the "J" on the smash cake.

These were the pretty little cupcakes I whipped up with leftovers. I am REALLY happy with how they turned out.
