As you will have noticed I have been attempting a little baking while I am on maternity leave. I don’t want to be a total cliche but I decided that I didn’t want to be one of those Mums who cannot make their son a birthday cake. Not that I  am making any judgement about those who do choose store bought options – after all there is a wide range of fantastic cakes and treats available now without the hassle or the almighty mess that baking creates in ones kitchen. However for me it is about choice and having never baked a single thing in my life I felt that it was a case of now or never.

So far I have successfully attempted two simple recipes for Cheesecake and Pavlova.

To inspire me further, FOMS came home the other night with the object pictured. A dinosaur shaped baking tin (there is a bit of a ‘dino’ theme happening in our household at the minute).

The only issue is I have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

Next week I am taking my son to his first Halloween party and have been tasked with bringing a dessert so I implore any of the bakers among you to give me some suggestions of simple tried and tested recipes utilizing my dinosaur tin. Preferably something that will make me the envy of all the other Mums 😉

I will of course post a picture of the finished product.

So far the only suggestion I have had is the one below sent by a friend via another social media network…

I suggest just doing a chocolate marble cake. Dollops of choc cake mix alternated with green mix. Flavour the green with mint if you like. Grease the tin well – spray with oil maybe. If the mix comes out well I dont think you will need to put much decoration on – you can lose the detail of the pattern. If it looks like. It needs icing. I would probably do a buttercream And use lots of sweets. Chic buttons for scales etc. hope that helps !!!! Xxx

Any other suggestions will still be taken under consideration – really want to do something creative.
