This is definitely the year of the dragon – the reptilian wonders are popping up everywhere! After posting our dragon cake photos and directions, I asked for pictures of your own Chinese New Year celebrations, and have been grinning ever since. People have sent the BEST pictures of dragon cakes. What I love the most is seeing how each person adapts the cake to fit their particular candy, color, dietary, or size requirements. Some of the cakes are gluten and artificial-color free, some are party-sized, some are family-sized, some are decorated by the kids, and some are decorated by adults with crazy icing skills. This little army of dragons is made with a wonderful array of candies, heads, and personal touches. The creativity is just awesome!
Important: For privacy, I cropped out all kids’ faces and didn’t put any decorator names or links on the above pics unless given permission. But I’d LOVE to include that info. If it’s ok to link your cake picture to your blog, or have your name appear in the mouseover text for your cake, or have me uncrop your pic to show faces, or add a cake that I don’t have yet, or anything at all, just click “email M3” in the left sidebar and let me know. (If you hover over your cake you’ll see a number, please include that in your email.) Also, if you want your cake picture removed, just say the word. It will be done immediately.
Gong Xi Fa Cai! Gong Hey Fat Choy! Happy year of the dragon!
