Dragon Tower Cake by Puppygrenade Dragon Tower Cake by Puppygrenade
Dragon Tower Cake By Jacob Elijah
Fondant / gumpaste / Chocolate cake, 24" x22"

Yeeep. It's all food. Foods! Fondant, gumpaste and Chocolate cake. Yums.

Well mostly, It does have a simple metal armature built into the dragon. You have to support a fat dragon with a two foot wingspan with something. I had to use all my art skills to create this thing: Sculpting, painting, wood working, sketching and eating. And, yeah, Eating gumpaste swords is definitely an art.

It was a surprise gift for my Moms birthday. She was happy. She better be... it took 22 hours of work to complete.

-Jacob

Update: Oh my! I'm blushing... DD!! Thanks people!

Why make it as a cake if its pretty much just fondant? Seems to be more the art of sculpture than the art of cooking and taste. Might as well make it in a more permanent media.

That has too much logic to it. Cakes ignore the laws of logic.

Only if those siblings are Half-Alligator Half-human. Bonus points for the annoying part.
