Dragon Cake

I have to give credit for this idea to "The Children's Party Handbook" by Alison Boteler. This was a fun cake to make. It was made from two 8" round cakes. Had I followed my own rules, using store bought cake mix and icing, it would have been easier. But, this cake was for my best friend who wanted buttercream icing. It's thicker and harder to spread than store-bought canned icing. And since buttercream icing is too sweet for a box cake mix like my beloved Pillsbury, I made the cake from scratch. Ahh, the things I do because I love my friends. She DID help me ice it. And then swore she would never request a dragon cake again. Details for this cake are coming soon, but for now, I leave you with the gargantuan picture (the dragon measured a good two feet across!)

I am always thrilled to see creative readers like you bring the recipes in my books to life. The cake looks great! The Children's Party Handbook was my very first book so I'm glad it is still standing the test of time.
