  • Dinosaur Cup of Dirt – Individual cups of layers of brownie, treats and icing.  Wouldn’t it be cute to find spoons that resemble a mini shovel?  Via The Baking Way
  • Dinosaur Kebab – Sour strips of candy on skewers topped with dinosaur gummy candy.  Ahhh, a kids idea of “heaven on a stick“!  Love the candy holder as well!  A simple tree trunk with holes drilled into it.  Stand the skewers up in the holes and place at the party table.  Via Minimoz Blog
  • Trifle Earth Layers topped with Hot Lava – Isn’t this one cool?  Another creative idea by Wants and Wishes Design.  In a large rectangular glass container, layer crushed Oreo cookies, chocolate cake, gummy worms, candy rocks, and if you wish, a few layers of brown sugar (sand).  Top with red hot candy, like Red Hots, for lava.
