Doesn't look too difficult, especially if you are just worried with carving as the bodies of the dragons look like small half balls/bowls. Head could be done with cake, but probably easier with RKT and it they would be easier to shape

Carving is one of my favorite things to do and imo I think this is pretty straight forward. To me it looks like the body, neck, and head are pretty easy shapes to do and then it is just detail work with the snout, eyes, etc. Looks like the body could be either cake or RKT and I would say the neck, face is RKT covered in fondant-which is easy and fun to work with icon_smile.gif I hope you have fun with it!

looks pretty easy....i would just use the ball pan for the body. the head can be made with rice krispy treats, cake or just a big glob of fondant. the neck looks lke just plain fondant.

So.. if I use RKT.. am I supposed to let them set before I cut them into a shape.. or is it more of forming it before it dries?

For small things like this (just the head) I usually just buy pre made RKT from Target-they sell individually in some places too. Then I just mold them to the shape I need-some times I'll actually carve if necessary.

okay.. Im going to try it icon_smile.gif

I think the premade RKT will be easier to use.. they seem softer and more pliable.. or maybe the ones I made at home and the tried to shape were just dry icon_smile.gif

Looks like you could use the mini egg pan for their bodies too
