This cake is great for a kids birthday party.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a fossil cake. The next time your kid has a birthday party, try this fun fossil cake for the party. It's basically an Oreo cake with a chocolate cake, whipped cream, Oreo crumbles, and a white chocolate dinosaur. You can even bake the dino into your cake but making some white cake mix and baking it in the mold, then placing that in your cake pan and pouring the chocolate batter in. Click here for the recipe.
