12 Dinosaur Birthday Cake Ideas We Love
Last month, I did a post called 30 Dinosaur Birthday Parties You Will Love. 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.

We even have dinosaur cupcakes — because who can ever ignore cupcakes?
