Dragon made of cake

JD sez, "In the grand tradition of amazing edible sculpture comes this nerdy piece of jaw-dropping confectionery. It's holding a d20, and sitting on a white chocolate hoard. There's a lot of really amazing detail in this thing. Seriously. A dragon made of cake." Dragon cake (Thanks, JD!)

  1. Mmm, it’s my birthday soon. Going to be SOOOO disappointed if I don’t get something at least as good as that. Maybe a cake version of the Sandman and his lovely siblings…

  2. I see the link that says “Dragon made of cake”, and I think “Big deal, I’ve seen dragon cakes before!”

    But holy shit, that is beautiful.

  3. My jaw just dropped. Literally.

    And Antinous: Indeed, ‘twould be a strange bunch of roleplayers indeed who suffered a cake to be bland, even one so exquisite to look upon.

  4. I have to say that, as Flash sites go, that one maintains its sense of humor. It’s as ornate and fluffy as the product.

  5. It’s beautiful, but I often have a problem with the 3D masterpieces like this that have been popularized by the Ace of Cakes TV show. They seem more like sweet sculptures than food, since most of the visible sculpture isn’t delicious cake, but fondant, gum paste, forsting, etc., and often held up by inedible props like PVC tubes. No offense, it’s a beautiful piece of nerdy art, but for an alternative, check out this old post..

    At least most of these look really delicious as well as visually stunning, imho.

  6. Thats is the type of cake everyone would love to have on his/her birthday.

  7. Wow.
    Best food sculpture that I’ve yet seen on BB. (perhaps it’s just a better photo of food sculpture than most featured here?)
    Nevertheless, wow….sadly, this art is not eternal.

    That’s disappointing. I wanted to lop its head off and feast on it, hopefully while some sort of red fruity jamlike stuff leaked from its cakey neck and the rest of my party carved up its haunches like a turkey. Experience points for all! And treasure. Chocolatey treasure.

  9. I have never seen a cake look this good and still be edible. No plastic? No piping? No styrofoam? It looks delicious.

  10. This is a-ma-zing.

    That said, I need to make sure no one makes such a beautiful cake for me, ever. I would be torn by the horrible dilemma of seeing it hacked to pieces or letting it rot… *wringing hands*

  11. I am the one who commissioned this cake from Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Redmond, WA. You may have seen him on the Food Network Challenges.

    It was actually quite tasty. The head, neck, and tail were made out of modeling chocolate, there was one small support in the neck but was otherwise cake covered in fondant.

    It was an amazing 30th birthday for my boyfriend.

  12. Hmmm … the website put a price of $2.30 per serving for basic (unsculpted) cakes of 1-100 servings, and said that the price was negotiated based on the concept from there on.

    I’d be guessing in the $200 – $500 range for this one.

    T90Dramaqueen, are you willing to share how much this cost?

    (Obviously it’s understandable if you aren’t – once it’s on teh internets, the boyfriend might see…)

  13. It was quite spendy. I would prefer not to say. But it was kind of a “once in a life time” kind of thing so we decided to shoot the moon.
