I am making a cake with this theme today.. Im just so unsure of how to decorate! Its pretty open to however I want. Mom is my best friend and its for my 6yr old nephew. Im having a really hard time finding action figures with the party tomorrow. The only things I could come up with are doing a 2 tiered cake with the top tier looking like the viking style helmet that the boy in the movie wears.. or I was actually thinking of making the cake shaped like a dragon.. but Im not sure how much carving is involved in that because i dont have much experience carving.

Any tips would be SO appreciated!

I did glance at some of the saved pics on here and nothing really stood out. I also do have an edible image printer if anyone has any ideas involving that.

thank again!

Things that stood out to me from that movie were the fish pond, cause thats that the dragons ate, the book that identified the different types of dragons and the training center.

I think the book with the viking helmet would be a good combination.

I agree with myslady. I'd do the book with images printed from your printer to look like the pages from the book in the movie. As for a 3D Viking helmet, maybe a dome shaped cake (carved or specialty pan) and for the horns you can use gumpaste. Mold the gumpaste in a similar fashion as you would a shoe (I've seen tutorials on youtube) just in the shape of the horns.

Good luck, and please post pictures when you're done!!

the main dragon seems to not be too hard to "mimic". It looks like his face and wings are his main stand out features. so if you could the helmet in fondant and shape him out of fondant too, you'd be set. But. then easier said than done, right? icon_biggrin.gif

What if it was toothless (just his head really) wearing the helmet? You coud just replicate his facial features and carve it a little biit to shape?
