Scout Bake off

The Boy Scout bake off was yesterday and the theme was fantasy. I asked my son what he wanted to make and instantly he said a red dragon. I am not the best at this sort of stuff but I had the idea well maybe I can just get away with just a head if I put the dragon in a worked for Logan.

I have to give my nephew Donovan most of the credit, he shaped the head and put most of the cave together...he frosted the cave and I just put some crushed oreo cookies on it. The castle was my husbands idea we had him carve out the shape after it was in the mold. My nephew frosted the castle while Logan and I cut what seemed like hundreds of red circles and layered it on the dragon head. In the end the cake was a family affair. My favorite part beside the dragon scales was the flames coming out of the mouth. I had Logan started it, Donovan added the orange and I finished it with the yellow and red...I wanted those flames coming off the cake and we were able to do it with no problems.

This cake took us two days, but it was worth it. When my nephew walked into judging room where the scouts were hanging out, the scouts mobbed my nephew like he was a superstar. That moment and my sons happiness was the highlight of my night. So in the end we won a Gold wooden spoon for "Best Presentation" and the award that I wanted to win the Blue painted spoon "Scout's Choice". You can see Logan below and how proud he is holding the spoons.

Now, if I could just get this red dye off my hands, I could put this cake behind me LOL.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
