While bespoke commissions aren't our everyday gig, a devoted Instagram follower threw us a curveball, requesting a Spyro cake delivery in London for his girlfriend. Now, who could resist the charm of a cool purple dragon?
Surprisingly, Spyro boasts quite the geek-chic fanbase—I had no clue. Among all the dragons in existence (or imagination), Spyro easily takes the title of the coolest one in my book.
The nerve-wracking part? Sculpting the dragon. Google didn't offer much guidance, so I turned to the packaging of a Spyro the Dragon toy for inspiration.
And the result? Adorable! I'm absolutely smitten!
The cake itself comprised three layers of our Hero red velvet sponge, adorned with Swiss meringue buttercream in vibrant dragon hues, including a majestic purple.
To enhance the Spyro figure, I piped buttercream flames around the cake—no fondant overload here. Let's be real, nobody enjoys fondant over the age of 5. Swiss meringue buttercream, on the other hand? A crowd-pleaser!
It was a hit among the girlfriend's friends and colleagues—pure magic!
