For my daughter’s 13th birthday she requested a very difficult dragon cake. I said to her perhaps choose something a little easier, so she asked for a cake in the shape of an ice-block. The cake was relatively easy, the hardest part was cutting the chocolate fondant for the top of the cake. And yes I did take a bite out of the top of the cake before covering it with fondant to make it look authentic, much to my daughter’s disgust, she said you can’t serve that to people after biting it so I told her I’d have that piece.

Everyone thought the cake looked absolutely amazing and they especially loved how I made the paddle pop stick out of fondant. It was eaten very quickly.
