Birthday Dragon Cake

birthday dragon cakeFirst steps in decorating this was quite easy. I used Italian buttercream and colored most of it light green. I coated the outside and top of the cake and smoothed it out. To do the dragon, I found a picture on the web that I liked and sat it in front of me. I simply looked back and forth from my picture to the cake and drew each individual line. To fill in I used a leaf tip and layered darker green frosting to create scales. Then drew the eyes. To create the fire, I used orange and yellow and a little bit of red sprinkles and mixed and scattered to look like fire was coming out of his mouth.
