So one of my friend here asked me if I could do a dragon cookie cake. Her daughter had recently gotten a "dragonolgy" book and was determined to have a dragon themed birthday!

So here it is... I decided to use royal icing and the color flow method to get the smooth details that would be missed if I used the basic buttercream star tip method of cake decorating. I was pleased with how it turned out, and liked the effect that painting the dragon with a luster dust/alcohol "paint" created on the royal icing. A shiny textured, grainy feel...
