Our first dragon cake!
I think it came out pretty well...
What do you think???
The boys were very happy with it.
Two 9-inch round devil's food cakes. Cut according to Charlotte's suggestion, with a twist ;)
Rather than ding-dongs, I shortened the neck and used the pieces for legs.
Charlotte suggested freezing it to set the first layer of frosting, but I didn't have time (or freezer space), so I went with it.
I used Craisins for the red eyes and I figured a dragon that breathes fire *must* have red nostrils...
so I used them there too.
The spikes are Little Debbie devil squares.
We also read about St. George in:
Saints Lives and Illuminations by Ruth Sanderson
Loyola Kids Book of Saints by Amy Welborn. As a side note, this really is a great book! It not only tells about the saint (like all other saints' books) but it also focuses on a strength/virtue of the particular saint.
Saint George and the Dragon by Margaret Hodges
Saint George and the Dragon by Geraldine McCaughrean
Then we colored Saint George from Fenestrae Fidei
He takes a bit longer to get these done (he's awfully particular),
so his will be finished tomorrow.
