There's more to these dragons than first meets your eye! This reveal cake will delight and surprise at any kind of celebration. Hide a secret message in the tower and watch the fun unfold.
Paul created this design as a birthday cake, however it would also make a lovely gender reveal cake. It's a brilliant cake to customise and let your imagination go wild with! And with the skills learned you could make hundreds of different designs.
In this tutorial you'll learn how to make a large cake tower, stack and ganache cakes, cover awkward shapes, create realistic textures, make sugarpaste dragons, make a reveal contraption, airbush work and lots more.

We'd love to see your take on the Dragon Reveal Cake - so make sure you share your photos with us on our Facebook page.
