There are many ways to make a dinosaur cake. You could bake one in the shape of a dinosaur, you should create an icing dinosaur on the cake, or otherwise give your delicious creation a prehistoric theme. Unfortunately, this means that there are just as many ways to screw up making a dinosaur cake, and the blog Cake Wrecks has a small gallery of some hilariously bad dinosaur cakes.
Thanks to Sarah Zielinski of our own Surprising Science for pointing me to these catastrophic confections.
