I made these cupcakes for my friend Janice, who was throwing a dinosaur-themed birthday party for her daugther's 4th birthday. Her daughter loves strawberries, so I made strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. And in case there was anyone who didn't like (or was allergic to) strawberries, I also made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate cream cheese frosting.
Although I had never piped dinosaurs before, I had piped duckie cupcakes for my friend Naomi's baby shower and thought it would be similar, except with an added neck, tail, and feet. So I attempted to pipe green dinos on the strawberry cupcakes, and blue dinos on the chocolate cupcakes.
To prevent the dinos from looking like the Lock Ness Monster, I also piped yellow spikes along the dinos' backs and tail. I thought the end result was cute, but kind of looked like dragons instead of dinosaurs!
We all had a great time at the party - the kids played and the adults got to chat and catch up. Thanks for inviting us Janice! Hope everyone enjoyed the cupcakes, and hope you had a happy birthday Sofia!
