The Zodiac calendar bestows upon us another Chinese new year! The 2011 year is the Year of the Rabbit! But this year I made a Chinese Red Dragon cake constructed out of cupcakes! The cake is marble cake with cherry buttercream and covered with Red fondant! I have piped detailing with gold scales on the red dragon. This Dragon reminds me of the Red Dragon from Avatar the Last Airbender :)
Here is the Chinese Dragon's fierce stare!
The dragon is about to lurch!
Here are the Chinese New Year Cupcakes I made with fondant Square dusted in super gold and piped with Chinese new year sayings! " Happy Chinese new year" and "Gong Xi Fa Cai!" - which is "Good Wealth to you!" Wishing you a very happy Chinese New year! :)
