This Dragon Birthday Cake was made for my child's 4th birthday with ideas I found off the net. If you look carefully there is a hole inbetween the nostrils where there is a straw place through the cake and the cardboard box underneath the cake. The straw was connected to a Tupperware lid which had dry ice in it. So when the cake was served it smoked. The kids loved it but I think the parents enjoyed it more.
So the cake is made from two 9 in round cake pans. The first cake is cut in half and set up to make the round body. The other cake is cut into pieces to create the head, tail, and feet using the curves of the cake to create the round spots. The nostrils are kisses, the toes are orange candies, the eyebrows are green candies, the spine on the back are square chocolate cookies cut in half, the eyes are a marshmallow cut in half with mini chocolate chips.
The scale pattern on the dragon was made by using a maker cap. It was a lot easier than I thought.
I made this Dragon Birthday Cake Design for my stepson's 7th birthday. I used 4 round cakes, 2 chocolate and 2 vanilla. I got many of the ideas from this site then incorporated Zach's ideas onto this dragon.
The body is 2 round cakes with just the bottom inch cut off, make sure you get icing between the cakes so they stay together. The rest of the dragon was cut out of remaining cake. The icing is just Betty Crocker icing dyed green. The scales are green fruit roll up, the fire is red and yellow fruit roll ups and the wings are also fruit roll ups supported by wood skewers.
The claws and teeth are candy corn, the spikes are midnight mint squares cut in half, and the eyes are marshmallows with chocolate chips. Zach wanted the dragon to be protecting treasure so we bought some chocolate coins.
The cake was a big hit and didn't take as long as I thought it would.
I used (2) 10" round cake pans and 1 (12) inch round cake for this Homemade Dragon Birthday Cake Design. I cut the 12 inch cake in half and folded it together standing up. I used icing to make it stick. I then cut one of the 8 inch cakes and cut it in half and put one on each side of the 12 inch cakes folded in half. I used the last 8 inch cake for the tail and neck and used three cupcakes for the head.
I used fondant for the scales and then i used cashews for his claws. I used chocolate chip cookies and crumbles them up to make it look like the dragon was sitting in the dirt. I made his eyes out of fondant and eyebrows and nostrils out of fondant. I used white icing and colored it green.
This Homemade Dragon Birthday Cake Design was actually a lot simpler than it looks! And wasn't very time consuming either! I started with 2 10" round cakes. I cut one in half and put side by side for the body, and the other I cut into different shaped pieces for the feet, tail, neck and head. I iced with buttercream tinted royal blue with a star tip and piped on.
I made the wings, ears, spikes along the back, face features, and horns out of fondant. Then put some edible glitter gel on the wings and ears. Also sprayed along the back and tail, and the sides of the legs with black airbrush cake spray.
It was my first dragon cake I've ever done and I think it turned out great! The lady who ordered it loved it!
