This is the cake from the front this is the cake from the top

The cake was for my son who was turning 3. He is crazy about the movie 'How to train your dragon'.

I baked four square cakes, and cut the shapes out for the head, body and tail. (I drew a picture before I started to make sure I knew what shapes I wanted.)

I glued them together with caramel and then poured a chocolate icing (made up of 1.5kgs of chocolate and 1 packet of icing sugar) over the top of the cake.

I then used licorice for the claws and plastic icing for the horns and eyes. I painted the eyes with food coloring and the horns with melted chocolate.

The wings were plastic, I cut the shapes out of old file covers.
