Happy birthday to Winston!

My realtor's son turns 5 today, and they asked me if I could do some dinosaur cake pops for his party. At first I couldn't figure out HOW I would do such a thing. Spherical dinosaurs? But after playing around with a couple of ideas (and with a lot of great input from my friends), I figured it out!

A group of stegosauruses. Stegosauri?

And a pterodactyl!

But why stop there? 

I figured a birthday party is not a birthday party without a candle to blow out. And you can't put a candle in a cake pop. So, I decided to make a prehistoric scene, complete with winding river and volcano. See the finished product below!!!

The "prehistoric" landscape

I think the dinosaurs feel at home, don't you?

It's the big 5.0! 

Happy birthday, Winston, I hope you had a great party!
