I have been asked to do a cake for my 35 high school reunion. The idea I have is to make a replica of our mascot. Problem is our mascot was a dragon that appeared to be in the walking position. How do I make that happen? I have only done small and simple 3-D cakes and I don't know where to start or what pans to use. I have till Oct. to get this figured out. Anybody got any other ideas or help? Thanks
I'm not much help on having him in the walking position, but I made a dragon cake based on a tutorial with lots of pics in a magazine I found. The dragon based on a Lindy Smith design and is in my pictures. Instructions are in issue 107 of Cakes and S u g a r c r a ft magazine. It'll maybe give you some starting points as far as cake pans to maybe use, how to carve it, and how to make the scales and wings (if yours has wings).
Hope this helps maybe a bit - sorry it's not more.
i would model the dragon out of RKT and make him walking just like your mascot, i would make the cake part either the ground he walks on or a cave nearby. hth
