Dragon Building for Fun and Profit

I offer several different dragon classes - choose the one that best fits your needs or

ask about a custom designed class just for you.


 I will supply all the gum paste and fondant which will be colored for the project pictured.  If you would like a different color, please let me know and I will bring white gum paste and/or fondant for you to color before class.  Please plan to bring the color(s) of your choice.

This dragon started out as a bedtime story my Mother used to tell me.  One year I made the storybook out of cake for her birthday complete with this dragon figurine.

This is a 4 hour class.

I will provide all the make-ahead parts but we will make another set in class for you to use on another dragon at home.

Anumoria

Anu is an Earth dragon and has a more realistic look to her than some of the other dragons in our family. She is the first thing that I ever entered in a cake show.  Her good review is one of the main reasons that I have continued to enter shows and work in sugar.
