Well, the thing with celebrating feast days at home with your children, and doing cool things like making a dragon cake for the feast of St. George, is that your children DON'T FORGET!!!
"MOM, you HAVE to make the dragon cake AGAIN!!! Pleaassssseeeeee!!!!!!!"
Even though it was a super busy day (I had a Little Flowers meeting to lead this afternoon) I couldn't resist the fun, and made another dragon cake... Actually, it was quite a bit easier than last year, and didn't take near as long. This time I used chocolate covered graham cookies for the spikes (like Charlotte and Renee did last year) which was sooo much easier than trying to frost cut-up pieces of cake. For the flames I just used some organic fruit leather, which wasn't that red, but oh well! He still is nowhere near as cute as Charlotte's dragons, but I do think he is an improvement over our dragon from last year...
This year we just used cocktail swords for slaying the dragon, but the children were thrilled... Even Snuggles loved the dragon!
Hope you all had a wonderful feast of St. George!
