First off, I am so mad at myself, this is the only picture I took of the cake. I totally forgot to take one with a plain background. So, lucky you. You get to see the mess I make when doing a cake :) 

Anyway, a friend called me do make this D&D themed cake for her husbands birthday, and of course I was up for the challenge. I really did enjoy making it. However, getting the neck strong was a little difficult, but it all worked out in the end. The neck, legs and arms are rice krispie treats and the wings and stuff are gum paste. And since I don't have an airbrush I hand paint all the detailing. For how to paint on a cake click here
