Spyro 3D Cake by ginas-cakes Spyro 3D Cake by ginas-cakes
This was a bit of a challenge from beginning to end. I couldn't find the right reference pictures...my sponge was too soft...and well, just problem after problem. Still........ after a week of being tested, here is the end result of my daughter:iconthedarkdestroyer: Birthday cake.

Sculpted chocolate sponge Spyro with edible bits. Wings supported by wire set in the fondant. Pillars are bought swiss rolls covered in fondant pebble effect. Fairy and Sparks supported by wire. I had to make Sparks wings out of paper as I thought he would snap with my run of luck!..:)

Love the idea for the pillars, these give me trouble more times than not, but looks awesome with the pebble effect. Great job. :worship:

I started doing the pillars in fondant, but they were too heavy and unstable. It pains me to buy
cake, but I thought it would work better...and thankyou...:aww:

:) I always argue with my 2 brothers all the time when my mom makes pumpkin pie. Sucks to be the middle child though. I only got one piece.

That's what my daughter says.... She's the middle child of 5.
I think sometimes being the middle child is good. When there is something nice for dessert,
it doesn't matter if I've started with the youngest first, or eldest, my middle child(Hayley) still
gets something...:)

YES! you don't know how much I appreciate this cake! The first Spyro game was wonderful and it was pretty much my childhood. Now with all the new games, like Skylanders, he doesn't even look like this anymore!! I appreciate this cake so much :)

what cake to do, I always go for the original design...:)
