This was much easier than making a dragon cake

Dave’s 11th birthday party was a big success, the boys all had a great time playing Dungeons and Dragons. I was by no means sure that it would work out today as none of them had ever played before, but all went well under Adam’s expert GM-ing and by the time we were half-way through the session they were all asking when they could come back and play again. Actually, I enjoyed it too, it’s many years since I last played any RPGs, I hope this will be the start of regular games. My level 1 thief did quite nicely and only came within a whisker of dying once…I think the GM was rigging things!

I spent most of the week in denial about the need to come up with a cake design involving a dragon but was rescued at the last minute by an inspiration that involved much less creative agony. Dave was happy with my suggested dice theme and here’s the result.

Polyhedral dice cake

More gimmick than culinary art, but then it only took me a fraction of the time I’d normally spend decorating which was a huge plus today!

  1. I like it and so does Ben (looking over my shoulder). A successful kids party is always immensely satisfying.

  2. Mmm, I can’t see the photo! 😦 Never mind. Never made a dragon cake, but I did do a mermaid one once, which used spearmint leaves for the scales on the tail. You could use those for a dragon too, I’m sure!

  3. lol. And now, of course, when I went back, there the cake photo was! Must’ve just been awfully slow loading. It looks awesome. Glad I wasn’t at the party or I would’ve had to have had some! Love chocolate cakes.
