For adding wings to your dragon cake you can try this out cut wings shape out of rolled fountain. Attach a toothpic to dragon cake make smooth shape wings as you want and press that tooth pic thrugh the skin of the back at an angle so the wings stick up.

Tell him he'll get spinning wings and like them. :D Then you'd just need a pinwheel.

Otherwise, here's some inspiration: http://www.ornithopter.org/how.flap.shtml

i think there are instructables about making ornithopters (which fly by flapping wings) For this project, i might suggest a low speed gearbox motor available from hobby shops. these are probably slower than most gearboxes from rc cars.

look up whirligigs, you can probably hook up a small geared motor like that from a r/c car or just hand crank it. Good luck.
