3. Mix the eggs, sugar, and mayonnaise until fluffy. Add the flour mixture, milk and vanilla and mix well. Spread batter into the prepared pans.

To make the colourful Dino, bake the gluten free cake in a dino-shapped pan. (Dinosaur Cake Pans)
Use your child’s favorite colour to create the creamy icing.
Decorate the Dino with Smarties and fruity candy. For your Dino’s facial expressions use a frosting gel-pen, licorice, or string candy.
