Hatching Dino

My daughter just adores dinosaurs so I made this cake for her dino themed birthday party! The egg is RKTs, crumbcoated in buttercream and covered in fondant. I texturized the egg before the fondant set and painted it with a bit of grey petal dust before airbrushing with pearl sheen.The dino is sculpted from modeling chocolate and painted with luster dust. The nest itself is chocolate cake, crumbcoated in buttercream and then covered in chocolate fondant. It also received an airbrush coat for shading. I surrounded the whole thing with my edible sand and gumpaste ferns. Happy Birthday, Sarah!
