Hi Everyone...well, my husband finished the dragon cake last night. I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with it and so so so so proud of him!
The only credit I get is for baking and icing the layers. He did everything else, including airburshing and sculpting the actual dragon. The dragon is fondant, gumpaste wings, marshmallow boulders! He also painted the backdrop of the sunrise. Ironically, this morning when I dropped the cake off at 7:15 am, the actual real sunrise was identical to the one in the painting (orange sky, black clouds). It was beautiful, and I take it as a sign that we are on the right path.
Anyway, just wanted to share! HEre are the pics:
WOW it is amazing! You and your husband make a great team!
WOW!!!! That is absolutely amazing! How'd you do the rock formation? It looks so real.
Absolutely stunning!!! It is very realistic looking. Two thumbs way up
Thank-you; he'll be thrilled that you like the cake. The rocks are just large marshmallows that he cut with a knife, and then he painted them, and added airbrushed effects.
You guys are a great team!!!
and every so jealous!
Cut up marshmallows??? How ingenious is that? I am truly in awe!
It's really easier than you'd think! Actually, the hard part was the sculpture, painting, and getting everything to hold up!
OMG!!! WOW!!! I can't believe this is a cake. it is just beautiful. you and your husband are so talented.

As everyone else has said, you guys are great together in this cake decorating thing!! At least all of us at CC will be able to say..."We knew you when...." once you guys hit it big!! Ya'll should seriously consider making this a joint endeavor & pushing the "cake limits" together...there's no telling how far you guys could go with it!! Like good wine & cheese, you both compliment each other very well....your combined efforts always turn out beyond SUPREME!! I remember you mentioning something about opening a small shop (over in the business forum)...how's that going? Is DH along for the ride on that too??
Thanks everyone for the great feedback. I can't wait for Devin to read it......it's going to really fuel him to continue on. He's been wanting to transition careers, so I am hoping that we start getting some business and leads from this.
Jenn, we are opening a store front this January. I am going to take my Christmas break and use it to do display cakes, etc. Hubby's on board with it all.....it may soon be his new career if we pick up business. We'll see!!
if we pick up business. We'll see!!
more like drown in it!
and I look forward to taping your first Food Channel Cake Challenge competition!
slightly jealous over here...
If I asked my hubby to help me with a cake he'd grab a fork and say "where can I start?"
too cute, mommachris!! LOL
Ditto what flav said!!
You are definitely headed down the path to success! Your cooperative works are so amazing! I find myself checking your photos all the time just to make sure I don't miss anything!
I'm with Doug, not IF you get busy, just when (and soon at that I'm sure!)
