Here are two cakes made in very similar styles. The first is a set made for a seven year old boy's birthday. He loves dinosaurs and this cakey Cretaceous creation was a hit all the way. The inner volcano is hollow and allowed for a spot to place dry ice for a misty effect.
This second set of photographs is for a Pirate themed Volcano Cake. Similarly made this cake was created for another boy's dream seven year old birthday. A buried treasure was created within the cake for the child to dig out of his own special piece. X-marks the spot! As with the other cake a volcano hole allows for a candle flame or piece of dry ice placed carefully in a small container with water for a misty effect.
