Dragon

Thanks to all the ideas I got off CC and pictures I found on the web this cake was a success, I am proud. The body is made from a 9"x 11" sheet cut in half stacked for 2 layers and carved, the tail is a 10" round I cut (forgot to round out). I tried to make the head and neck out of rice krispies but it wouldn't hold so I carved foam. Scales are teardrops cut out of fondant.It took 3 hours to put on all the scales then I airbrushed it using green and gold.. Horns teeth and tongue etc are gumpaste.

Thank you! The wings are gumpaste, I put toothpicks in each one while they were still soft, then stuck it in the cake and glued with royal icing.

Your dragon is absolutely spectacular. Really cool wings! The coloring is great and I just can't imagine cutting and placing all of those scales 8O

The wings are gumpast with a bunch of toothpicks, the back one eventually did fall over (luckily it was my nephews party) next time I would use long skewers. Thank you all for the wonderful comments.
