A McClellan Original

Well folks, we finally made it to Cub Scouts and last week was Cameron's first Blue and Gold banquet. It was a "Chinese New Year" theme... only, no one told us it was the year of the rat!
So we decided to make a Chinese Dragon. This was a father and son thing- so no moms allowed! Well, after talking to all the moms, and getting there replies of "yah, right, my husband and son make a cake without my help???" So, I decided that IF they wanted my help, I would help a little, but I wanted to see what they came up with. And now I'm starting to think that Mitch is a better cake decorator than me!
Okay I will admit to helping with the head a little, but it was Mitch's design and Cameron's idea for the face. They did the body out of colored fondant disks (all individually cut out and stuck on) The horns and toe nails were made from vanilla tootsie rolls (they shape up wonderfully) but the coolest part of it all is that this was made up from an idea from their heads- no books or pictures! It's a 100% McClellan original! And it stole the show! Each scout brought a cake and that was the desserts for the night... well, we didn't take one piece home- that's how much the boys all loved it! There were cheesy awards for each cake so no one felt left out, and Cameron's award was "The Greatest Cake". He was one happy little trooper! Here are some shots of the cake:

Wow!! That is much better than any Martha Stewart cake. I am sure you have so many people that always want a "favor" ...a cake made. Good job Mitch on creating it.

Looks like your awesome cake talent has rubbed off onto the rest of your family. That is a really cool cake! I would have never been able to let them cut it up and eat it. Way to go Mitch and Cameron!
