  1. Cake: Preheat oven to 350˚F/180˚C/Gas Mark 4. Lightly coat 20-cm cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In medium bowl, using handheld electric mixer, beat together egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla until well combined. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture until combined. Fold in half the M&M’S® Milk Chocolate. Scrape batter into prepared pan, smooth top.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until tester comes out clean when inserted into centre of cake.
  5. Immediately press dinosaur footprint cookie cutter into top of cake, with footprints all pointing in the same direction. Using spoon, scoop out 1-cm depth of cake inside footprint outline and use fingers to smooth imprints. Let cool completely on wire rack. Remove cake from pan.
  6. Fill dinosaur footprints with melted chocolate.
  7. Decorate cake using green icing to resemble grass. Garnish with remaining M&M’S® and sprinkle cookie crumbs on and around cake to look like earth. To serve, cut into 12 pieces.


  • If you can’t find a dinosaur footprint cookie cutter, draw and cut out your own template, or simply use your fingertips arranged like a dinosaur footprint and press carefully into cake.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk, add 10 mL white vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice to measuring cup; add enough milk to measure 125 mL. Let stand for 10 minutes before using.
