Hi, I'm Ashley Lucas, the artist and crafty girl behind Today, I'll be showing you how to shape food to look like a dinosaur. This is the dinosaur we'll be making. Okay to make our dinosaur we're going to need a tube of Marzipan from the grocery store, one toothpick, and assorted food colorings. I'll be using blue for mine, you can use any color you wish. Okay, first you're going to mix your food coloring into your Marzipan. I did that with mine and it achieved this color for my dinosaur. Now after I mixed it together which can take quite a while and you'll need the Marzipan to be room temperature to work correctly with it, you want to shape it into four legs, they kind of look like half cylinders, into one long cylinder for the body and into some tiny pea shapes and this is going to be the ridge on the back of your dinosaur. After you have all these components complete, you can put them together and then you're going to add some little eyes with a toothpick. Now this dinosaur you can add on top of a cupcake, a cake, you could even package it in some cellophane and give it as a gift for a birthday. Thank you so much. I hope you enjoy learning how to shape food to look like a dinosaur. My name is Ashley and you can find me on line at
