Dragon w/ Kiwi Scales
I made this for my son's 3-1/2 birthday party (he's born on Christmas Eve, so we do kids parties for him in the summer instead). I did not want to feed green food dye to a bunch of 2- to 6-year olds, so I resolved to 24 kiwi fruits, sliced to turn into dragon scales. Cake is torted and filled with a variation of pastry cream. After I served the cake, I realized I forgot to put on the wings... oh well.
