Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Taming the Beast

.



This year's St. George dragon is, honest to goodness, a twenty minute dragon, not counting shopping and bake time. I simply ran out of time at the end of the day with a deadline in front of me (as evidenced by the sloppy icing and lack of both front paws!). I refused to stress, however, considering the fact that he was made to be slain and eaten with a side of chocolate ice cream!



Charlotte has an excellent tutorial at her place, so if you care to recreate this ferocious beast for a birthday or future St. George day, be sure to check her instructions first.

This is so cute! I really had in mind that I would make my own bread dough dragon for St. George Day this year, but I have been so distracted I totally missed it. I guess there is always next year.
