Good Lord, I am so impressed with this and your dedication to following through. I am lucky I can make cupcake frosting from the back of the box.



I am so glad that I stumbled upon this post! I have been racking my brain about how to do excatly what you guys did, adapt one of the recipes from Hello cupcake and make a dinosaur! I am having a dinosaur party for my two boys and they will love these!

I gotta adapt that techniques and keep looking for ideas since I'm in Mexico, so with this photos you help me figure it out how to do it, I also have both books, and this "make me a dinosaur party" is driving me crazy LOL

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your experience and for posting the most wonderful cupcake idea EVER! I made these -- with a few tweaks and they were a HUGE hit at my son's 6th birthday party. I'd like to share a picture and my "tweaks" with anyone else who would read this...

1st. I made mini brownies instead of mini cupcakes - this provided for a more sturdy "body" I also held it all together with a skinny pretzel stick. I used a medicine dropper to make a hole in the circus peanut which was the exact size of the pretzel stick, used icing to make sure the stick stayed inside the peanut and then pushed it through the brownie and in to the cupcake. Freezing for about 15 minutes and then using store bought icing tinted green -- and for the eyes I used mini m&ms

Excellent, they look like you spent a ton on them and you really don't have to have lots of skills to make them!


Jennifer - Excellent tweaks! If you can, please link to a photo of yours, or email one to me c2cmom at gmail dot com and I'll include it here and credit you.

I think I need to make these dinosaur cupcakes again and have better photos to show along the process. It warms my heart that people are finding inspiration from our search for dinosaur cupcakes! :-)
