Dragon Cake Pan by Think Geek
Gold luster dust
– 3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
– 2 cups sugar
– 3 eggs
– 1 cup buttermilk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– 1-½ Tablespoons match powder
– purple food gel dye
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep the cake pan with non-stick spray.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar, then add the eggs one at a time until combined.
Alternate the flour mixture with the buttermilk and vanilla just until combined.
Scoop out ¾ cup of batter and place into a small bowl. Add the purple food gel dye and stir until thoroughly combined.
Spoon the purple batter into the egg areas of the cake pan.
Add the matcha powder to the rest of the batter, stirring well to combine completely.
Pour into the cake pan, carefully covering the purple batter.
Place the filled bundt pan on a baking sheet (in case of spillage) and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer test comes out clean.
Let the cake cool in the pan until the pan is cool to the touch, then turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Cover the egg area with plastic wrap, then dust the rest of the cake with more matcha powder.
Add a small amount of gold luster dust in a bowl with a drop of water and use a clean kitchen brush to brush gold onto the purple eggs.
With a #3 tip and black icing, add the face details of the dragon.
Slice the cooled cake to reveal the purple eggs.
