Happy Feast of St. George!

I wish we were going to slay our dragon with some friends today but alas, a spring cold has knock us back a bit. I like how he turned out, but I must admit that he didn't get the attention he deserved today. First, the weather played havoc with our frosting. Warm and humid is not good for frosting or queasy pregnant women. And don't even get me started about smelling the sweet stench of that frosting. Let's just say that this dragon should count himself lucky to even have skin! Normally, I would take the time to smooth out all the rough spots, but today, he stays rough whether he likes it or not!

 We used Toblerone for the spikes and gave him a little hoard of treasure. Fruit roll-ups made the wings with Kisses for the eyes and nose. Our dragon slayers are working on their swords and can't wait for the Sir Daddy to come home from work. As for me, this beast is going back in the fridge where I can't smell him anymore!

If you have your own dragon waiting to be slain, don't forget to head over to Catholic Cuisine and share your cake with everyone.


  1. I LOVE IT!!! He turned out so great!!

    One of these years I am going to have to try out the wings. They look so cool! I also LOVE the idea of using Toblerone candies, and that pile of treasure looks TOO GOOD!

    Thank you again for teaching us how to make this dragon!

    Happy Feast of St. George!

  2. Bless you for making such a special memory despite your queasy belly! Hugs from one empathetic mama to another:) Love the purple color and chocolate spikes! Thank you for your grace and inspiration.

  3. Super cute!!! And, yummy looking! :) We are so making this next year.

  4. Dear Charlotte,
    I think he looks great. You always do a lovely job on this.
    BTW I always use whipped cream on my cakes. For all our birthday and specialty cakes I colour the cream instead of frosting. It is so much easier to make too.
    I hope your queasyness(s) stops soon.
    God Bless

  5. Great job!! He turned out great! My kids look forward to this one year after year!

  6. Thanks for the tutorial how to make this cake. My son insisted we make this when he saw the photo. It's been lots fun, and St. George is one of our favorites.

    Congratulations on your baby!

  7. Beautiful. I love the rough skin. It looks very dragonish. And the gold hoard is too clever. I hope you had a wonderful feast day. Maybe next year we'll have a dragon here.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
