Last year I made my oldest daughter a dragon cake, and this year, my youngest daughter wanted a dragon cake. I have used box mixes in the past, and they were fine, but this year I looked up a yellow cake recipe from Martha Stewart. It is still a bit crumby when I tried to ice it, but it was fine. Next time, I’ll try to find a different cake mix; one that doesn’t fall to crumbs when you cut it! I’m just not that skilled yet! I used a butter cream icing recipe from BHG.
I looked up dragon cake templates and found this one from Family Fun Magazine! There are 2 round cakes that you cut and put back together. I found it very easy to follow. I used Wilton’s food coloring in blue since that is what she wanted.
Last year, instead of just icing the dragon, I starred the entire thing! It looked really good, but it was a lot of work!
The only thing we did differently was with the fruit slices; we had to cut them in half lengthwise and dab the cut edge in sugar to make them the correct size to fit our dragon feet. Everyone enjoyed the cake, they thought it looked awesome! But as someone who wants to improve thier cake-making skills, I want to find a recipe that isn’t so crumby and also imrpove my skill in icing the cake. Hope you enjoy!
