Originally, Strapping Young Lad requested a spotted pig birthday cake. No sweat.
Thus far, I have made a cow, monkey, and tractor cake. The latter one fell apart, but still tasted good. You really cannot mess up a two layer, round cake made into an animal face, and I thought I'd be making a pig one this year.
At any rate, the requested birthday cake changed from a pig to a dragon.
I found some pictures here that were detailed enough that I could figure out how to construct a dragon from only two round cakes. (I didn't purchase the download instructions for this cake; the free pictures are enough to figure it out.)
Here's our dragon! He even breathed fire. :-)
