Making Dragon 🐉 with Cake: An Incredible Food Art
Creating a cake with a dragon design is a fantastic way to impress guests at a party or to simply indulge in an artistic project. While it may seem daunting, with a few steps and some careful planning, even a beginner can create a beautiful and delicious dragon cake that will be both visually stunning and delicious.
Here’s how to make a dragon cake:
– 2 boxes of cake mix (your choice of flavor)
– 4 cups of buttercream frosting
– 2 cups of fondant (your choice of color)
– Food coloring
– Edible glitter or luster dust
1. Prepare the cake mix according to the package instructions, baking it in either two 9-inch or three 8-inch cake pans. Let the cakes cool before handling them.
2. Cut the cake as per the design of the dragon. You can use the template that you find on the Internet or make your own by drawing it on paper and cutting it.
3. Place the cake onto a large cake board or platter that has been covered with frosting.
4. Using a large serrated knife, trim the tops of the cakes, creating an even layer across each layer.
5. Spread a layer of frosting on top of the first cake layer. Place the second layer of cake on top of the first and repeat the process until all layers are covered, including the cake’s sides.
6. Now it’s time to get creative with the fondant. Roll it out until it’s about 1/8-inch thick, then use a knife to cut out pieces to cover the cake.
7. Add food coloring to the fondant if desired to make it the color of the dragon or any other part of your design.
8. Gently place the fondant onto the cake, smoothing it over with your hands to make sure it’s even and free of air bubbles.
9. Create the details of the dragon as per your design. Use a small brush to apply edible glitter or luster dust if desired.
10. Finally, you can pipe the dragon’s eyes and nostrils with some black frosting, and you have an amazing dragon cake!
