Volcano cake suggestions needed

My son is turning 7 next week and has requested a dinosaur-themed party. I have a Demarle tray that has cupcake-sized pyramid shapes, so thought I would make individual chocolate and vanilla "volcanoes" for each kid to decorate themselves. When everyone's finished, thought we could put all the cakes in the middle of the table and light a candle in the top of each one for my son to blow out while we sing H.B.
My question is, what do you think would be good to use as decorations for them? I got a bucket of plastic dinosaurs for them to use and some jelly bean candy that look like dinosaur eggs. What would you use for lava? Thought about the cans of the new "pourable" frosting and coloring it red, but have never used it, so don't know how thin it is. Any ideas?

Lori

Cute idea, Lori. You always buy that frosting and thin it with a little milk if it seems too thick.
