Modeled Dragon by simplysweets Modeled Dragon by simplysweets
Too excited to wait until tomorrow when he moves to his cake to post this. So please forgive the awful background of dummy cake and parchment paper that he was living on so I could see how he would sit on the cake.

This was my first time working with modeling chocolate, and I formed him from rice krispy, wrapped in modeling chocolate and then covered it and worked details in gumpaste. The wings are supported by a wire frame.

I made the forelegs a little more bulky than I should have. And looking back I can see tons of technical details that I can do next time. But I think he's pretty cool, especially since I've never worked with chocolate like that and have very little sculpting experience.

I like him! I'm sure some of his details will fall tomorrow when I transfer him, but I'll replace them onto the cake. I just wasn't patient enough to wait until tomorrow to place everything. I had to see it now!
