My son Toby was having his 9th birthday and he requested a dragon birthday cake because of the movie "How To Train Your Dragon". I wasn't sure what I was going to do until I stumbled upon this idea on a family fun website under fire breathing cake, but I decided to spruce it up a bit and make a two headed dragon to be more like the movie.
I used a a concentrated red gel mixed with white frosting to make his deep red color. His eye brows and toe nails are gum drop slices, his eyes are marshmallows cut in half with chocolate chips. His spines are chocolate graham crackers. It was around Christmas time so I used Christmas candy corns for horns and teeth, and star chocolates for the nose. I also used fruit roll ups for the fire and wings.
This cake was very easy to make I had a ton of fun making it. This cake turned out to be the wow of the crowd and everyone at the party loved it including my son, he was all smiles!

This Rainbow Dragon Cake is my oldest son's 5th birthday cake, requested by him and insanely agree to by me. I got the design idea from many of the cakes on this site, and obsessed (happily) over my plan for quite some time.
I used food coloring to make the colors of the rainbow for the body. Triangle-shaped gummies made good wings, and gummy fruit wedges served well for back spikes. I couldn't deal with the candy melts or fondant, too crazy for me. The fire is fruit leather sprinkled with colored sugar. Teeth and toes are Dots candy. The eyes are marshmallows cut in half with a raisin stuck in the middle.
I had a total blast making this cake, but it wasn't exactly a piece of cake!
I started out with an eight egg sponge mix for this red dragon cake cooked in a rectangle pan and cut out the shapes. There is jam and buttercream between the layers which I find keeps things together well.
I first covered it in vanilla buttercream and then covered it with a good half centimeter of red fondant. I then made up the features, ears, eyes etc from fondant. I made the wings with rice paper painted red with food colour then attached them with red royal icing.
Finished the cake by painting the details on in a darker red dye and a black for pupils etc then went to town with bronze dusting powder! This cake is big enough to feed maybe 10 -20 people.
My son want a red dragon cake I used 2 9inch pan and cut the first in half to make the body then cut the second to make head and tail it took me 3 day to make this cake but it was well worth it. I used different types of candy for the eye,mouth ect. Used fruit roll ups for the wings and cookies for the scales.
