Hi, a friend of mine wants a dungeons and dragons cake lke this for her husband,I am going to make the dragon out of rkt, but do I need some kind of internal structure to keep him together when travelling etc. It will take about 40 mins to get to the party venue and I have visions of his head / tail cracking off. Any help much appreciated, I was thinking maybe chicken wire covered in florists tape?
If your dragon is going to be laying down like in the photo. You really don't need any internal structure. But, if your still worried, you can put wooden dowels/skewers into the head after you form it and then attach it to the body. You can do the same with the tail as well.
thank you, maybe i will do that then, thanks very much for the advice, much appreciated xx
yr very welcome
Agreed. I made mine and only used a dowel to hold the head on the body, but because it was laying down, everything was compact enough that it stayed together with no problems. It traveled 2 hours, over both highway and dirt roads, and arrived fully intact and secure.
thank you for your replies, I feel much more confident now xx glad to know that it held up under those travelling conditions too xx
