Dinosaur nest cupcakes. Really easy to make! After smoothing brown icing (could be chocolate, mine was just a buttercream dyed brown), I piped green icing with a grass tip and 'laid' (teehee) three yogurt covered almonds for eggs. The R-O-W-A-N is paper taped to toothpicks. I used my Cuttlebug and the 'Olivia' alphabet set to cut out the letters.
The cake! I love that you can rent different shaped pans from Bulk Barn, otherwise I would need a second house for all the pans I'd have to buy!
For some birthday fun, I kept it simple and only planned one activity. A dinosaur egg hunt! Well, dinosaurs and candy :) Rowan loved his dinosaur 'babies'. He cuddled them as if they were real and gave them kisses.
A friend of mine gave Rowan a ginormous dinosaur colouring book for his birthday. So a few sheets went up on the wall for an art break before dinner. Between a 1, 2 and 4 yr old, only one line of crayon got on the wall! I'd call that a success.
Rowan thought our 'Happy Birthday' singing was utterly hilarious.
Yummy-yum-yum! Happy Birthday, my little dinosaur!
