Hi, yes its made of a dense cake covered in ready to roll fondant icing. The mountain is just made from pieces I'd cut off the main body of the dragon, which is basically an egg shape covered with the fondant and the neck and tail added afterwards. The wings were a bit trickier, you need to add a gum additive which hardens the sugarpaste, I made them to size and put them to dry whilst I added the details like the spikes. You can paint the dragon with food colourant after but it looks better if you knead the colour into the paste first. Hope this helps, I'd love to see the results. Good luck! :>

Oh WOW! I love this dragon even more! Somehow, the orangish/yellow color makes it look more evil.

hi, the dragon is made from a good dense chocolate cake, sculpted into shape and then covered in ready to roll fondant icing coloured first. then i add the details like the head etc, and yes you can eat all of him!

:blackrose: What's the interior of the dragon made of? I mean is it edible? or just the mountain

the main body of the dragon is cake but the tail, neck and head are fondant icing. its much easier to model the fiddly bits from fondant than to try to carve fine detail in cake. and yes, its all edible!

LOVE this cake!

I'm actually in the process of trying to figure out how to make a particular cake, with a dragon, but I'm not sure how to begin or what to use.

I've made regular cakes before and have experience with fondant, but I'm guessing I'm going to need something a little stronger to hold the shape for a 3D dragon.

Any advise or tips would be GREATLY appreciated! =)
