Is there a tutorial showing how to crumb coat a 3D dragon and cover it with fondant??? I'm one of those visual people that needs to see a technique done rather than read how it's done. Can anyone help me???
Have you searched youtube?
have you seen this? http://www.instructables.com/id/Fire-Breathing-Dragon-Cake!!/
I know it's not covered in fondant but all you'd need to do is cover the parts in buttercream for the crumb coat (or ganache) then cover each part in fondant. I made a fondant covered dragon (one of my first cakes that wasn't just a plain cake) and just covered the body, head, tail and limbs separately... http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=4219798&l=724d97484d&id=721936645
I dont have a video reference but I have made a sculpted dragon cake before. I carved it completely before crumb coating, not in pieces. Just thinned my buttercream and used a flexible spatula in tight areas. Used a viva to smooth (it was a crusting bc even though I use smbc more often now). I covered my dragon in about 320 individual scales but if you want to cover in fondant (have done an alligator with one piece of fondant) just get it workable, spritz the cake lay it over loosely and gently stretch the fondant to press into the creases and such. Hope your cake comes out great
