Aren’t these Dinosaur Birthday Party Cakes Amazing?

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 boys’ 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?
