Coolest Two Headed Dragon Birthday Cake

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!

  1. This is really awesome! Could you please explain how you made it dimensional! My son wants a dragon cake for his birthday also! I would really like to try to make it somewhat 3-dimensional! Any tips would help! Thanks!

  2. Hi Anonymous, I am very happy you liked the cake. You will find that it is very easy to make and I am sure your son will love it. You can start by typing in Family Fun Fire-breathing cake in your browser and it will give you a general lay out. I made it 3D by making 4 9 inch round cakes (instead of two in the directions). I cut 2 of the cakes in half to give me 4 separate body pieces. I used 3 of the pieces to make up the body ( instead of two). This made the body broader to accommodate the two heads and to give it a 3D look. Then I used the 4th 9 inch round cake to make the extra head. I had a little bit of cake left over. Another tip would be to refrigerate the the cake before you use the marker top to make the scales. It will make a better impression in the frosting when it is cold. Thank you for your comment. I am sure you will have lots of fun making this cake!
