Dinosaur park 4th birthday cake

I made this cake to celebrate our dinosaur fan's birthday as he turns 4 today.
To make this cake I used...
1 box of vanilla cake made in a 9"x13" pan
1 box of chocolate cake made in a 9"x13" pan
1 container of frosting
Wilton ready to use rolled fondant
Blue, Green and Brown Wilton gel colours
Wilton buttercream icing*

I covered the cake with the rolled fondant by kneading the fondant with blue food colouring to get a marble texture I didn't knead too much. 
*Wilton buttercream icing
2 cups icing sugar sifted
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp butter flavour
2 tbsp cream

Beat the shortening and butter then add the icing sugar, butter flavour and cream to make a medium consistency icing.
To make the leaves, grass, and branches I used the Wilton tips 16, 233, 352 and 366
