We hIn this free cake decorating video, I'll show you how to create a CUTE dragon cake! This cake is perfect for kids birthdays!
How to Make a Dragon Cake
I had so much fun creating this sweet buttercream-frosted dragon cake!
Just as a quick overview, I used a Wilton Wonder Mold pan for the main body of the cake, and the head and neck are formed from a 6" round cake layer.
The tip of the dragon's tail and head are from compressed & shaped pre-made rice cereal treats.
You can easily modify this dragon cake design to fit whatever size of cake you need! You could also use this basic design to create a dinosaur cake, with a few modifications of the head and tail.
My dragon is a cheerful one---but you could create an angry dragon by simply changing the facial features. You know I couldn't resist the party hat I gave him! :0)
The wings are formed from a circle of gum paste draped over bent floral wire and ruffled with a toothpick. Not difficult at all but I think they look very realistic!

Dragon and Dinosaur body shapes are so similar that most of these ideas would work for dinosaurs as well (minus the breathing fire part!) ;0) -
