Dinosaur Cupcakes

These easy-to-make cupcakes, decorated with plastic dinosaurs, work well for a prehistoric-themed Dinosaur Party.


  • Baked cupcakes
  • White icing
  • Zip-top plastic bag
  • Shredded coconut
  • Green food coloring
  • Small plastic dinosaur (washed)


  1. Frost the cupcake. To make the "grass," place a handful of shredded coconut in the zip-top bag, add a few drops of food coloring, seal the bag and shake it. Cover the frosting with grass and top with a dinosaur.


For a sandy look, use crushed graham crackers or molasses cookies instead of tinted coconut. Small rocks can be made out of chopped nuts.
