So where is this pretty cake? I wanna see!!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I wanna see it!!! I used to do that many moons ago.....don't any more due to arthritis ...just ones for family now.... show me, show me, show me!!!!!
Well, I don't know about "PRETTY", but here it is.
Boy, this really fits under BOM help, huh?!
this is two layers (two cakes) of chocolate cake iced with concrete-colored whipped icing. THe dragon is a FBCT (frozen buttercream transfer). The rocks are MMF (marshmallow fondant). I made the FBCT and the MMF, as well as the rest. He loved it!
If you all wanna see more of my cakes, I have 11 (including this one) in the gallery at www.cakecentral.com

well Miranda I'm impressed. I used to do cakes and I know that like quilting even what looks simple to others takes a lot more time and talent than people realize. I gave all my stuff to my daughter when I couldn't finish a cake without my hands cramping so bad I had to stop every 5 minutes. That really makes it take a long time to finish. I did a dragon once but he was animated and cute. While yours looks like a meany, you did a fantastic job.
I thought your cake was great! You do nice work.....is that a special recipe you made the dragon out of? I did alot of piped cakes when I was into it... the shaped pans like santa clause, darth vader, dora...etc. I still have most of my stuff but like Kathy I cramp up so bad I don't do them as a money maker anymore...just for special occasions for family....
The cake looks fantastic! Great job! I know the kid was pleased, it was a lot of work. :D You are a lady of many talents.
No, it isn't a special recipe, it's the technique that makes it awesome. I love doing these. They are called frozen buttercream transfers. I got some clear plexi-glass (acrylic sheets) last night, so they've been hard for me to see what's going on on the right side until I put it on the cake...good thing I'm good! LOL!
