How to Make It
Prep time: 20 min.
Baking time: 20 min.
Decoration time: 20 min.
Unwrap the SNICKERS® Brand Miniatures and chop. Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the package. Fold the candy into the batter before transferring to a 9- x 13-inch cake pan. Bake for 30 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven.
Once the cake is completely cool, use the dinosaur pattern to cut out the cake. Carefully lift the dinosaur from the pan, and place it on a platter. Crumble the cake scraps and set aside.
Using orange food coloring, tint the frosting to the desired shade. Spread the cake completely with the frosting.
To decorate the cake:
Line the M&M'S® Brand Peanut Chocolate Candies along the back of the dinosaur.
Bundle 5 to 7 M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies together, and press them into the cake as the dinosaur's spots.
Dot the dinosaur's face with M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for an eye, nose and dimple.
Using the decorator's frosting, pipe a smile and eyelashes.
Line M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies along the bottom of the feet.
Crumble the cake scraps, and spread them under the dinosaur's feet.
