What Were Your Steps for Making this Cake
My 12-year-old daughter and I decorated this cake for a Chinese New Year's party. We cut two bundt cakes to form the body. Coated with red butter-cream icing, then added red candy-melt scales that were brushed with gold luster dust prior to placing. The snout is made from twinkies. Tongue, legs, and tail are fondant. Fire is made from melting yellow and orange candy melts. It's all fully edible. Hope you and your readers find this helpful.
Tips and Tricks
- Mix luster dust with a drop of vodka or other clear liquor to paint the scales. We painted all the scales first, and then put them on the cake.
