How Do I Make this Harry Potter Dragon Egg Cake Balls?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Make sure your cupcakes are completely cooled before beginning to make the dragon eggs.
- Break-up all of your cupcakes into crumbles in a large bowl.
- Mix your cupcake crumbles with frosting until completely combined.
- With your hands, form into 12 egg shapes and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Place these in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to set.
- Work black GEL food coloring into fondant until the desired grey color is consistent throughout. Alternatively, you can buy grey fondant, it's just not a very popular color, though, so be warned.
- Separate fondant into 3 equal-sized portions, set 2 aside so you can work with one piece at a time.
- Roll the 1/3 section of fondant flat (about ⅛-inch thickness).
- Cut into 4 sections with a sharp knife.
- Remove eggs from the freezer and wrap one egg in one of the sections of fondant you just cut.
- Repeat until all eggs are covered in fondant. Do not try to work the egg too much, just get it covered--the more you handle the fondant, the more sticky it will get.
- Place eggs back into the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set.
- Working with one egg at a time, remove eggs from freezer and mash the edge of a spoon into the side, forming scales, starting at the top and working your way around the outside of the egg in concentric circles.
- Spray each egg with the gold cake spray.
- Place eggs back into the freezer until ready to serve.
- Serve cold.
