This cake is hot out of the studio oven – just finished it! “Babysaurus in a Nest” is a chocolate faux cake sculpture that is a quirky, unnatural nature scene. Oh, where to begin? There is a vintage celluloid or plastic dinosaur on the top layer that I’ve added a vintage baby head to (made in Hong Kong) to create the Babysaurus. She is wearing a black top hat and is protecting her colorful nest of eggs and her little pink baby – even though her baby hatched out with a skull head, wearing a pink top hat. The baby is playing with a pink lucite flower. There is a plush, pink and blue faux icing mushroom acting as a benevolent sentinel next to the nest. The bottom layer is studded with mushrooms made from plastic egg bases and faux icing caps. Dollops of faux icing and little artificial plants complete this quirky nature scene.
This sculpture is constructed on a 2 x 10 inch dense styrofoam base (bottom layer)and a 2 x 6 inch (top layer) and stands about 9 inches tall to the top of the Babysaurus’s top hat head. Multiple views can be seen on my Etsy page at www.kookykrafts.etsy.com if you are interested in seeing more!
