Connor Turns 6!

on October 31, 2013

All of the birthdays in my family are in the fall.  One or two a month from October – January.  Add in Christmas and Thanksgiving, and that is one busy season for us.  To kick start the holidays, my middle kid just turned 6.  He asked for a dragon cake.  Sure thing sweetie, no problem!

The dragon is made of sour cream pound cake.  The whole thing is cake, except for the head and the claws.  The head is rice cereal treats covered in fondant.  The claws and the tip of the tail are shaped from fondant and the wings are gum paste.

The scales on his back and chest were individually cut and placed.  He’s sitting on a marbled green fondant field surrounded by some buttercream grass.  One happy dragon!  And one very happy 6 year old!
