Dungeons and Dragons Cake

 
I made a Dragon cake!!!! More specifically a Dungeons and Dragons cake.  I was terrified about having to sculpt a dragon out of fondant, but the little guy came out pretty good in the end!  I worked in sections (head, body, tail, legs, wings) and seamed them together.  For the scales, I used a small heart shaped cookie cutter (the point side) pressed and pulled up gently in the fondant.

For the books,  I used a really fantastic book tutorial here as a guide.  It was a huge help.

Every part of the dragon and books were hand painted using Americolor gel colors and water.    Black petal dust was used for shading after food coloring had dried.  I also used TMP Super Gold and Super Silver for a few of the accents.

Americolor Soft Gel Paste Food Color, 4.5-Ounce, Super Red

Simple Bunny Cookies + GIVEAWAY! **CLOSED**



These easy to decorate bunnies make such a pretty addition to your holiday table!  The delicate little butterflies kissing he bunny's nose is made from wafer paper using a butterfly punch (I believe I purchased that particular one at Michaels).  I added a little color to the wafer paper using a very small amount of food coloring. Note:  to much water/food coloring will melt your delicate wafer paper.  I also added some rosy cheeks with pink petal dust.
