Lizard Cake

My son starts planning what he wants for his next birthday cake the day after his birthday. This past year he went through dozens of cake ideas and finally set on a lizard cake...

I'll admit it turned out like a gecko, but my son loved it, and that's all that matters, right?

The best advice I can give for this cake is make sure to bake it a day or two ahead of time, let it cool, wrap it in plastic wrap and foil, and freeze it. This makes cutting it much easier!

I got the inspiration from The Frugal Girl, and the basic template for the head/body/tail from Cloth and Fodder.

Once I cut the head and body, I used the scraps to cut out legs. I attempted to cut toes, but they just crumbled. When the lizard was assembled, I covered it in white frosting to catch all the crumbs and stuck it back in the freezer for a bit.

Then I covered it in lots of green frosting. I added blue and yellow sprinkles on the back to give it more color and chocolate chips made perfect little eyes.

Hope you enjoy making your own lizard and/or gecko cake :).
