A friend of mine has asked me if I can make a dragon wedding cake, something like this: http://weddingcakesx.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/big1-1.jpg or this: http://freespace.virgin.net/tony.fisk2/janescakes/wedding1/weddragon.jpg , except she wants the dragon to be crawling up the side of the cake. I'm debating whether I can do this or not, so I'm stalling on responding to her email.
With a large dragon like this, what do you use - all fondant/gumpaste? Or something inside to lighten the weight? And how do you make sure the figure sticks to the side of the cake?
I saw this tutorial that may help
Okay, wow, that is a huge help! Thanks!
