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

Kidorable towels review and coupon

Kidorable towels are without a doubt the cutest, adorable, unique towels for children I have seen.  The towels are creative and detailed.  I like that every detail on the towel is well thought out to be functional and unique.  My son is a big dinosaur fan so I chose the dinosaur towel.  Kidorable has a beautiful selection of towels for girls and boys.  

My son really loves this cozy towel and enjoys putting the hands into the unique hand slot in this towel and pretends to be a dinosaur.  I like this as well because it warms their hands faster.
The hood on the towel is big enough to easily wipe the hair of our moving dinosaur that is already in action.  The towel is absorbent and soft so children will allow us to wipe.  It is made with soft absorbent terrycloth with a layer of super soft velour.  Within all the cute details of dinosaur's teeth, eyes, tail, spots, spikes they even have a small piece to hang the towels on a hook.  

These quality towels are light and bright.  The towels are available in small size for children up to 2 years and medium size for children age 3 to 6 years.  The towels are beautifully and creatively packed.  The bag the towel is packed-in will be handy when we are going for swimming classes, beach or wading pools, we can bring the wet towel and clothes back in this reusable bag.  

With this coupon code DRYOFF33 we can get 20% off of our entire order at checkout from Kidorable during September 15th to 30th.  Kidorable products come in so many creative selections that it will make wonderful gifts for children.  Kidorable products are available online for Canadian readers to purchase and in US stores.

Dinosaur coin bank and Pullover pajama set

This dinosaur coin bank from pajama shoppe is really cute.  My son being a dinosaur fan loved this right away.  It is light in weight compared to the coin banks we have at home.  I like that the children can easily move the coin bank without getting hurt because of its weight.  This coin bank is 7" wide, 3.75" tall and 3.25" deep, which is a good size for children.  The coin slot is big enough to easily fit any type of currency.

The coin bank is made with silver pewter.  I like that they used this type of material, which doesn't leave finger print stains and saves me the trouble of cleaning and polishing it.

Teaching children the concept of money by having a money bank such as this cute dinosaur is a good idea.  They will start learning the value of money at an early age, as they recognize the different types of coins.  As the children get older they will learn to save their gift money for a good purpose.
The slot on the back is comfortable to take out the money easily when needed.

We really like the detailed design on this dinosaur coin bank.  They also have a Noah's ark coin bank, which is a little smaller than this one.  If you have a dino fan they will like this as a money bank or as a collectible.

Pajama shoppe also has a wide selection of night wear for men and women.  I tried their cozy comfortable cotton winter print knit pullover pajama set.  This pajama is so comfy that I could wear it to lounge all day :)  I like the soft material they have used.  The bright red and navy blue is very cheerful.  The prints of snowmen and snowflakes remind me of the joyful season of winter and makes me just want to wear these PJs on cool nights and curl up.
The elastic around the pants are comfortable and doesn't leave marks.  The top is loose fitting, which adds to the coziness.
They have from S to XL.  All the ladies will enjoy this soft cotton pajama set.  It would be a perfect gift to buy for moms or young girls going off to campus.
