My nephew is turning 9 tomorrow (Happy Birthday Luke!) and I asked him what kind of cake he wanted and his answer was a dragon cake. Gulp! I haven't made very many sculpted cakes and I was very nervous. After searching the web looking at pictures of dragon cakes I came across a good tutorial. http://sdbytracy.com/dragoncake.htm

Covered in fondant "scales".

The finished dragon cake. I love him!
