Coolest Dino Cake

My son is crazy about dinosaurs, so for his and his twin sister's birthday, I made him a dinosaur cake and a princess castle cake for his sister. (I'll enter that separately!)

For his cake, I made a two-layer yellow cake, and frosted it with chocolate icing. Next I took a triceratop skeleton silicone ice cube mold I found on Amazon. I melted some white chocolate in a double boiler, and poured that into the mold, and then put that in the fridge to set.

When it was hard, I nestled each of the "bones" into the frosting on the cake (the first picture shows what it looks like at that stage.).

Next, I scraped the icing out of a bunch of Oreos, and put all the cookies into a big Ziploc bag, and smashed them with the flat part of a meat tenderizer. This made the "dirt," which I sprinkled all over the top of the cake, to make the whole thing look like a dig site.
