Dragon cake

Caroline Eriksson decided to make an impressive present for fans of The Hobbit. She created this amazing gingerbread sculpture of legendary Smaug – a fictional fearless and greedy dragon from J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel. The gingerbread masterpiece took her many hours to bake and construct.

In order for Caroline to get the thing to stick together and not collapse under the weight, she needed to add loads of syrup and flour to the dough.

Overall, she says it took over two weeks of work in order to complete the whole project.

Smaug is not the first Eriksson’s gingerbread sculpture. Last year, she won the first prize in the 2013 Mill Gingerbread Competition in Norway with her wonderful Optimus Prime from Transformers.

She plans on eating it when it falls apart on its own. After two weeks of work on the project, who could really blame her?
