Candy-Breathing Beast Cake

This serpentine creature is surprisingly quick to assemble. The only thing faster? The speed at which young dragon slayers will devour him!

Super Shield Craft

Any self-respecting knight needs a shield with a crest. Set your guests to work making theirs from cake boards, washi tape, and card stock symbols.

1. Before the party, get our templates for crest patterns at familyfunmag.com/printables and cut them from colored card stock. For each shield, make a handle by securing the ends of a 6-inch piece of 3/4-inch-wide elastic to the back of a 16-inch cake board (available in the cake aisle at craft stores) with hot glue (an adult's job).

2. At the party, have the kids decorate the cake boards with washi tape (available at craft stores). Use glue dots to adhere the crest symbols to a paper plate, and paper plates to one another and to the cake board.

Transform party horns with streamers into fire-breathing dragon masks. Get our templates at familyfunmag.com/printables, cut them from card stock, and glue the red horns in place. Use a punch to make a hole for each party horn.
