I've never made a dragon before...

People love asking me which is the most challenging or memorable cake I've ever done.. Now when I hear that question again; this will have to be it!

Definitely the largest in terms of cake quantity; details and weight. OH MY GOSHh the WEIGHT of this thing. It was a baby whale!
My team of elves and I had been working on parts of the cake and it's components for close to a week! and I must say.. I'm so very proud of us. There were no drama's, everything looked great and we were on schedule and on time. It just shows how far along our kitchen and baking team have come along and we are now able to handle bigger challenges though they were child's-play. Okay I wouldn't dare say I wasn't stressed out! Of course I was!! haha
We wanted to make the cake as fresh as we could and so most of the work was only done one day beforehand. I barely slept that night. Not because I hadn't completed the cake... but more because of the excitement of making the delivery in the morning! hehe




The Founders Day charity event was held at Berjaya Times Square, KL and the cake was meant for Tan Sri Vincent Tan to celebrate his birthday. You can read more about the event and who this incredibly generous birthday boy is! THE STAR His charitable pledges took everyone aback that morning.. and I felt incredibly honoured to be given the opportunity to be part of it all.

Beautiful cake. I think I almost wouldn't want to eat it just because it would ruin the way it looks, but I feel that way about most of the cakes you've put pictures of on this blog :P

This dragon is so detailed, when I saw your heading for this post without seeing the picture I was going to say, "I have made a dragon before" but now I'm not even going to compare them - yours is definately the winner, you are way more experienced than me!!!
