Dragon Birthday Cakewreck


I swear, no alcohol was consumed in the making of this dragon birthday cake. Fortunately, in the eyes of child judges, candy and buttercream covers a multitude of sins. Bonnie Stewart of Crib Chronicles turned me onto the Instructables for it. My advice to you if you attempt it is to not wait until two hours before party start time to make it (unless your house is already clean, and the decorations are already up, in which case, two hours should be plenty). Also, use a wide, flat-tip icing point to apply the icing, so the cake doesn't crumble to moist particles of chocolate dragon flesh where ever you touch it with the spatula.

It's not wrecky! It's pretty good for someone who's not a pro, I think. I'm planning to make this same cake for my son's party next month, but I have absolutely no confidence that I can make it turn out. You did good!

Oh it's not beautiful like a professional made cake, but I'll just bet it's the most awesome cake ever for the lucky kid! I'd have LOVED a cake like that from my mom!
