My husband who is a kid at heart has always wanted a dragon birthday cake so I surprised him with this one.  He was so surprised that it made his day.

  • This cake was made out of two 9 inch round cakes.  One was cut in half to make the body and the other was used for the the tail, neck, head and legs.
  • Once I had the cake laid out the real challenge was frosting it.  My husband does not like buttercream frosting so I had to use store-bought whipped frosting.
  • I had to refrigerate the frosting and the cake for about 40 minutes to be able to add the frosting.
  • For texture I used the leaf tip to get the scale look, Oreo cookies for the scales on the back, Smarties candy for the eyes and paper wings.
  • My sons added the fighting figures and flames.
  • The landscape is brown sugar.

It was a lot of fun and the hit of the party.  My advise is to use your imagination and have fun.
