This was made for my son's 7th b-day. It was my 2nd sculpted/3D cake. The midsection and half of the tail was cake. The legs, neck, and end of the tail were RKT, and the head was styrofoam with a cardboard mouth. The sail, claws, teeth and eyes were gumpaste with everything else covered in a crusting BC. The support was originally only on the 2 back legs, but anticipating a bumpy car ride, I put a PVC support toward the front to avoid any potential disasters! TFL!
