Step 1: Supplies
2 9-inch cakes
6 cups of frosting, your choice of colour (more or less, depending on how thick you like your icing.
8 Keebler chocolate covered graham crackers
8 Sunkist fruit gems
2 Sunkist fruit slices
2 Blue Fruit Roll-Ups
1 Red Fruit Roll-Up
1 Yellow Fruit Roll-Up
2 Chocolate Chips
2 Hershey's Kisses
2 Wooden Skewers
You will want all of your fruit gems, slices, and icing to be all colour co-ordinated-I chose orange candies and yellow icing, but you can do what ever colours will match the plates or napkins you will have at the party.
Step 2: Preparation
Step 3: Assembly
Take one of your 9 inch round cakes and slice it in half. Take your frosting and spread some on one half, then place the other half on top, and place the whole thing on a cardboard cake board or aluminum foil covered cardboard.
Next, you will cut up the remaining cake. The diagram below shows exactly how to do it. Don't worry if it isn't exact-you can always make a smallish piece bigger looking with icing. ;-)
Step 4: Icing
Now, you will frost Mr. Dragon. I find that using a flat icing tip in your full icing bag works wonders on those difficult, moist and crummy parts, and once you've covered up the crumbs, you can use your spatula to smooth things over. This method keeps those crumbs from showing up in your icing.
Step 5: Decorate!!
First, to make the Dragon look like he is scaly, use a child's marker cap to imprint the design onto the creamy frosting. Arrange the Graham crackers along his back and tail; place Fruit Gems and Slices on his toes and head. Press the Hershey's Kisses pointy side in onto the end of his snout, and cut the marshmallow in half and place the chocolate chips on top.
Step 6: Wings & Fire
For the fire, trim your yellow and red roll-ups into curvy, twisty pieces, and position near mouth.
And, there you have it!! ENJOY!!
