Size: the tray ⌀30cm, height to horns 19cm
Time: ~68 hours during 2 weeks + 4 hours on the barely noticable clock drawing on the tray
~200g caramel candy
+crushed peanuts and chocolate sprinkles
eyes are made of crushed blue M&M's Honestly... I feel a bit guilty for having to compete in the 11-18 year old category... D: I mean... The things what a 11 year old and 18 year old make isnt that... Comparable. :/
Yeaa.... So THIS is what Ive been keeping myself busy with for the last two weeks.
Wanted to make sth different from all the regular over-glazed ginger houses.
Basically, this is made out of lil ginger cubes and sticked together with *lotsandlotsandlots* of CARAMEL!
+ filled with cocoa glaze. First made it in three bigger parts and then connected them together with *hellofalotmore* caramel. Thats why the body is so... square-ish. :I
Mmm~ The decorating part was my favorite~ Can you tell? :
Happy Dragons Year!
