The Reluctant Dragon is inspired by Bobbie’s favorite childhood book, written by Kenneth Grahame in 1938, and made into a movie by RKO in 1948! “The Reluctant Dragon is a charming tale about a shy, peaceful dragon who must overcome stereotypes to be accepted,” like most of us, he too is longing to be accepted!

With the dragon’s spectacular vibrant colors and adorable crooked smile Bobbie could not resist making her version of Dimensional Watercolor The Reluctant Dragon!

You’ll begin your artful cookie journey developing the correct dimensional royal icing consistencies, if you’re unsure, no worries, watch Royal Icing Dimensional Pressure Piping ConsistenciesOnce your tipless bags are ready for dimensional piping, gaining control of amount of press you apply to create movement and dimension.
