My seven year=old son wanted a Komodo Dragon for his birthday. Since a Komodo dragon would make a less-than desirable house pet, due to possibly causing DEATH! I opted to make him one as a birthday cake instead. He loved it –especially since mom (me) was so cool as to make the insides strawberry cake with a red colored filling. When he hacked into it —all the little boys cheered and the girl’s were utterly disgusted. Awesome birthday cake achievement! This cake was almost 4 feet long from head to tail. It took Five 9×13 pans, stacked and shaped. I could not get the head to stand up so I added cake underneath it for support and decorated it in a lighter green shade to make the dark green stand out. This cake serves about 60 disgusted adults and 50 happy kids.
