So my oldest turned four and wanted a knights and dragons birthday party.  This was his birthday cake.  It's forty cupcakes with the scales all piped using a large round tip.  I used marshmallows for the eyes with chocolate chip pupils and sculpted tootsie rolls for the claws (I wish I'd had white tootsie rolls on hand for that).  It was a huge hit at the party and frankly not that difficult to make.  :-)

Way to go Mom!  I'm always hesitant to ask my kids what they want for parties because it could be something I'm not willing to invest tons of time in.  Good for you!

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

So clever, I love the claws!  I have a couple of adult males in my family who would be over the moon to have this dragon at their birthday.

When he said he wanted a dragon cake, I panicked.  But then I found a few cupcake dragons floating around Pinterest which inspired me.  Smiley  It went together very quickly!
