How to bake a dinosaur

We are shameless dinosaur fans in our home and I recently wanted to treat Hamish to a fun treat.

I decided to bake him a giant brontosaurus biscuit.

I set it on a plate with a banana mountain, some mint leaves and a sun made from an orange slice.

The biscuit was just a butter biscuit recipe and you can recreate any dinosaur as I cut the shape free hand with a knife.
