My heart beat a quick pitter patter when a picture of this cute little dragon came across a text message on my phone. Creating cakes like this or like a Lightning McQueen cake I spent intricate hours making for my son, tends to make me rethink the desire to advance my cake skills. To all you amazing individuals that create delicious masterpieces out of cake and frosting perhaps you have some tips to add to ours?
Tip #1 Freeze the cake after you make it. This makes it easier to carve into shapes.
Tip #2 Think of frosting in layers. No need to complete the canvas in one take.
Tip #3 Use different cake tips for a different effect.
Tip #4 This tip is for me. Patience my friend! I asked my friend at Topsy Turvy and she told me a cake she made probably took 6-8 hours and I am absolutely positive there are more extravagant cakes out there that take many more hours than that.
What is the most unique cake you have ever made?
