Hi everyone!! I am currently in the process of decorating a cake for my friend's son, who is having his birthday party at his karate school tomorrow. When she first sent me the picture of different cakes and what she wanted incorporated from each one, I didn't think twice because it seemed simple. Now that I'm working on it, I tried to do a google search for the image that she wants on the top of the cake and I can't find it anywhere!! I normally resize it and then print it out to use as a template. I can't use the picture she sent me because it's at a weird angle, and it's zoomed in so I can't see the exact pattern of the yellow blocks. I have been searching online for over an hour and I can't find anything like it! All she said in her original email was that he wants the yellow dragon web thing on the top, and of course she's not answering her phone or texts!! Does anyone know if this is an actual image that this cake artist recreated on this cake, or is it something she just came up with on her own?? I don't want to make it wrong if it actually is some sort of popular chinese symbol!! I've attached a picture.....if anyone can help me I will be forever grateful!!

It's a google image search.

Save the image somewhere on your computer.

Google image search, click on it.

Upload your picture to the search bar, press enter.

Look at the results and click on the most likely places.

I just figured out what everyone was talking about a few months ago. It's been very useful!
