Since the Chinese calendar marks the next year (I mean this year) as the year of the Water Dragon. I decided it would be fun to make an appropriate cake topper. Of course, in my usual fashion, I got too excited about the project and didn't plan on the time this seven inch fondant monster would take.
I took some pictures of the process and the final "crowning glory" atop the cake (excuse my dyed fingers). Note to self...leave more then 3 hours for this type of a project.
