I made this Dragon Cake for my daughter’s 2nd birthday. After scouring the various Dragon Cakes on this website, I cobbled together a few suggestions and came up with this cake. (Thanks for all of the ideas!)

I made a triple batch of chocolate cake in one 10” round pan, one 9” round pan, one 8” square pan and about six muffin tins.

Body: I cut the 9” cake in half, stood them upright on their flat ends and put a thin layer of icing between the halves to stick them together. I also embedded two toothpicks between them to better keep the layers together.
Tail and neck: I cut a ‘curved tail’ and ‘curved neck’ from the outside of the 10” cake and placed it on either side of the body. I ‘filled in’ the slope from the back to the tail by adding part of a cupcake on top.
Feet: I used half a cupcake for each ‘foot’ and secured them to the body with toothpicks.
Face: I cut a triangular shaped face from the square cake, and added 3D eyes by using some of the leftover edges of cake.

Then I went to town with a decorating bag and star tip, using an ordinary butter icing with green food colouring. I used chocolate chips and yellow smarties for the scales, and two white chocolate discs for the eyes (used a blue Sharpie to colour in irises).

I also added candy treasure (chocolate coins and candy rings) and costume jewelry for the Dragon’s horde.

Super easy and fun!

Homemade Dragon Birthday Cake

My grandson who was turning 9, requested a Dragon Birthday Cake. I was not sure how to make one so I told him I would make him another kind of cake. As luck would have it, I found the 1984 Wilton dragon cake pan at a thrift store. I was not sure what colors to use or exactly how the dragon was suppose to look. I had to rely on my own imagination.

I outlined the image on the cake with black icing, (Wilton black food coloring). Then filled in with other colored icing to have a two-toned green dragon with orange wings. Fire and smoke came from his mouth. I was able to surprise Ryan with the Dragon cake he asked for.

Homemade Dragon Birthday Cake

I made this homemade dragon birthday cake for my son's 9th birthday, which was "knights and dragons" themed. I made two sheet cakes for the base. The dragon is made of two 9' round cakes cut up. I covered the sheet cakes with fondant and spray painted it. I assembled the dragon with icing and also covered it with fondant and spray painted it. The scales and nails are peach gummies cut in half. The wings are fruit roll-ups wrapped around a stick.

This Dragon Birthday Cake consists of 7 six inch round cakes filled with whipped cream stacked on top of each and split in half for back lumps and tail area.

I used a regular leaf tip to make the scales, starting at the tail end first so they can overlap. I used flower shaped cookies down its back and airbrushed him orange and red.
