My son has become a Dungeons and Dragons fan. For his birthday I wanted to make a Dungeons and Dragons cake. I checked on Pinterest (of course) but all the cakes were too complicated for this simple mama. I’m not a cake decorator, I’m just a mama who wanted to do something special for a birthday. So I figured out how to make a Dungeons and Dragons cake that was easy to make. It was the perfect surprise for my son.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a busy person. I want to make special treats for my family, but I don’t have days of time to invest and I don’t have professional (or even semi-professional) level cake decorating skills. When I tell you that this Dungeons and Dragons cake is easy to make, I mean it.
How to Make a Dungeons and Dragons Cake
I’ve made several Dungeons and Dragons gifts and crafts and I’ll share those below.
I had intended on using the Sharpie to design a cover, but it didn’t turn out too well. So I scanned the cover of our Dungeons and Dragons Player’s handbook, printed it out onto card stock paper and Mod Podged it to the cover of the little book.
To complete the mini player’s handbook, I created a little pencil from a match stick and craft paint and crafted a smaller scale piece of graph paper.
I placed the mini Dungeons and Dragons Players Handook on the cake along with a couple of dice (I placed them on small pieces of plastic to protect them from the frosting). And voila! A Dungeons and Dragons cake a mama can actually make.
The cake was devoured with a couple of “Cool”s mumbled when I brought it out. I count that as a success with the tween boy crowd.
