Given the popularity of dinosaur birthday parties as a theme for boy parties, I thought I would follow it up with a post showcasing some of our favorite dinosaur birthday cakes. These birthday cakes represent a range of budgets — from the homemade to the ordered from professional cake decorators — and a variety a variations on the dinosaur theme itself — from pop art dinosaurs to realistic dinosaurs and everything in between. We even have dinosaur cupcakes — because who can ever ignore cupcakes?
