My daughter’s dear friend recently had a birthday. She loves dragons and wanted cupcakes with dragons and lots of frosting. I browsed through some dragon cupcakes online and found some great ideas but, of course, had to incorporate some ideas of my own. When I think of dragons, fire and lava come to mind so that’s what inspired me to make these.
I made the lava by filling the icing bag with two colors of buttercream. I used a 1m icing tip to make the swirl. I then topped with fondant dragons I made the night before.
Although fondant is great for making figurines, it isn’t my favorite when it comes to taste so I made these Rocky Road cupcakes I was dying to try. The cupcakes were filled with marshmallow creme. They tasted amazing and went with the dragon theme.
Here are the finished cupcakes:
