What kind of cake do you make for a sweet boy who is a true bookworm and loves dragons? Why, an Eragon cake of course! This is one of my favorite cakes I have made so far. I know I keep saying this, but I loved making this cake! I took great pleasure in sculpting Saphira (the dragon) out of cereal treats, covering her in fondant, and giving her dragon scales and spikes and a little personality! Her wings are painted with a blue sheen food colour, which gave them a bit of a sparkle.
The dragon in the movie and the dragon in the book by Christopher Paolini differ somewhat...so I tried to incorporate features of both.
The book, of course, is the actually cake (2 layer chocolate cake, with raspberry buttercream filling, covered in chocolate ganache and then fondant). A ribbon (fondant) bookmark with birthday well-wishes written on it marks a pretend place within the "book".
