    Gold Chinese Dragon Cupcake and Gold cupcake wrappers


                                                Enter the Dragon cupcake

    Chinese Dragon; this mythological symbol dates back to 3000 BC and stands for happiness, immortality, procreation, fertility and activity. Chinese Dragons were believed to ward off evil spirits. Take a look at a Chinese city and you will see dragons decorating ancient monuments and buildings, sometimes playing with a pearl or thunder-ball.

    Boy, the old Mac computer doesn't like the heat & has been constantly crashing today... I'm a bit behind schedule because of it, but I just had to show you my new cupcake cases!

    Love these free standing gold crown cupcake wrappers that come with removable white cupcake liners to bake in. Fabulous for potted plant cupcakes, Christmas tree pots or do as I did and swap the white case for another colour. The cakes sit at a slight angle in the square wrappers, but are still stable enough to transport.

    Available in square or round, I got mine from Bake it pretty (US)

    The Chinese dragon hand modelled from leftover white/grey modelling paste I had on hand. 

    Partially made dragon, cornflour (corn starch) dusted cardboard supports are in place for the drying process.

    After leaving to dry overnight I gave the dragon a coat of antique gold food paint & finished it off with a dusting of red & antique gold dust. 

    Happy Baking :)

    I'm still getting over the chocolate strips/ curls tutorial and thinking how fabulous everything would look with an amazing chocolate flourish and then you put a gum paste dragon on a cupcake and the whole thing looks fit for a king!

    Your posts have been so helpful in showing me ways to dress up the standard cupcake. There are so many cute and whimsical options for kids and brides but not enough books out there for people who want cocktail or dinner party-grade desserts that are easy to make.

    Thank you for your inspirations.
