Easy Dinosaur Fossil Birthday Cake

Pipe melted peanut butter chips, or white chocolate chips if you prefer (about a third of a bag) from onto a plastic freezer bag (or parchment paper if you have any), placed over a dinosaur skeleton coloring sheet (like this one) to use as a guide.  Allow the peanut butter "bones" a few minutes to harden up...

 ...and then plop them right into the frosting of your otherwise ordinary birthday cake (in our case a round, double-decker, chocolate cake with chocolate - or rather dark chocolate - peanut butter frosting), and top with a generous handful of crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies... complete the transformation of an unassuming, everyday, frosted cake into a dinosaur lovers delight.

It's great to be a homeschooler.
