Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Make and bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Refrigerate or freeze cake 30 to 60 minutes or until firm.
  • 2 Cut cake as shown in diagram. Arrange pieces on tray to form dinosaur as shown in diagram. In small bowl, tint frosting with green food color. Attach pieces with small amount of frosting.

Carefully cover with paper towel and gently pat to give frosting a textured appearance; remove towel. Outline scales, legs, mouth, nose and eye with black gel. Decorate with green gel and jelly bean eye. Store loosely covered.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Purple frosting? Why not. Use food color paste to tint frosting to satisfy wild imaginations!

Create an attractive display by covering a piece of sturdy cardboard with wrapping paper, then plastic food wrap. Stretch and secure with tape. Or cover cardboard with foil or cooking parchment paper.

*For all chocolate and devil's food cake mixes, use only 1 cup of the water.
