Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Sponge Cake

• First preheat your oven to gas mark 5.
• Now mix all of your ingredients together using the electric whisk on medium power.
• Next cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Step 2: Orange Icing

• Now it's time to make your butter icing, first mix your butter and icing sugar together. Once the mixture becomes crumbly add 2tsp water and carry on whisking.
• When you have a nice thick, creamy icing add 3 cap fulls of yellow and then 1 cap full of red (if you have orange just do 2 cap fulls of orange).

Step 3: Cake Layers

• First cut a trapezium shape from both of the layers.
• Next use the cut off sections to creat a shape that will represent the eyes (follow pictures above)
• Then create the built up shape of the head (shown in the pictures).

Step 4: Finishing

• First use two of your toothpicks to hold the eyes in place (I found this a lot easier for icing the cake).
• Use your next two toothpicks to put in the teeth/marshmallows, because some of the toothpick will be visible you can use this to create nostrils.
• Then ice your cake and use your jam to fill the mouth of the dragon.
• Now add in your chocolate drops for the eyes and nostrils!

Step 5: Finished!
