This cake was based on the Disney’s Pixar film How to Train your Dragon and the dragon Toothless in particular. The cake also had to have a fondant model of Toothless on top.
This single tier cake was a vanilla sponge filled with a vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam. The cake was then covered with a grey fondant icing and finished with green buttercream to look like grass.
I made toothless all from black fondant icing and pieced his head and wings to the body using cake wire. For the lettering on the cake I used a stencil I had made on the computer and printed on card. I wanted to create a shadow effect so I used a black background for the lettering and placed the red lettering on top. To finish the cake off I used a green buttercream and a Wilton grass nozzle to create a grass effect around the edge of the cake and cake board.
