1. Prepare some green butter cream frosting. We’ll hide most of the dinosaur’s body inside a grass so you won’t have to worry about that anymore. Only the head and the tail will be visible on top of the cake.

Just make sure that the head are soft enough to punch those nose holes in and make a line for the mouth. Put the dinosaur head and tail on top of the cupcake. Then add green some green frosting around it.
3. You’ll also need white and brown frosting for the rest of the decoration. Put some white cream on the head of the dinosaur all the way to the back. Use an icing tip. Put two dots of white frosting for the eyes as well.
4. Put brown chocolate frosting on top of the white frosting for the eyeballs. As for the flowers scattered over the grass, small flower-shaped candies will do.
