Dino cupcakes

The boys have been learning all about Dinosaurs in preschool.  Well mostly Doble's class.  They have even made a 6 foot paper mache dinosaur for their classes to pull in the Grand Parade this weekend.  After the parade the school is having a family get together where the three classes, families, and past alumni can sit and visit.  The boys are a little torn because they had to choose the parade and party for a Mariners game.  They chose the Mariners game and of coarse now that I have the tickets they want to do the parade and party.  Although we will not be going to the parade and party we still made these Dino Cupcakes for everyone else to enjoy.  Sadly I made exactly 24 so they couldn't even have one spare. 
I have no idea why the purple frosting looks blue.  I couldn't figure out a good setting on my camera.  I think it is from the lighting in the house.  The Dino cutouts were all done by hand since I have still to get my cricut cake.  One day I will get one just wait and see.

mmm 24 cupcakes

I was impressed that Doble knew all the names of the dinosaurs.  I guess he really does pay attention.

My new cupcake caddy.  So excited for this.

Snug as a cupcake in a tub. Now no little fingers can get to them and it makes for very easy transport.  I have to make cupcakes 2 more times in the next 3 weeks for school, on top of 2 cakes.  This is our busy birthday time.

what did you use to cut out the dino shapes by hand? i'm trying to make similar cupcakes for my son's 4th birthday.

I actually found a picture online that I liked and cut it out. I then used it as a template and cut each one by hand with a sharp knife. Took me forever, but they turned out cute. Good Luck.
