I'm hoping that this new year will bring good tidings to you all [and a change of luck to those of us who need it!]. It doesn't hurt to follow the usual Chinese traditions to start the new year off on the right foot. Hey, I need all the help I can get!
Here's my checklist:
- Get together with family [check]
- Have a new year's feast [check]
- Clean the
- Clean myself! [check]
- Wear red [eh... I'm hoping pink counts! Red just didn't match today's suit]
- Wish friends and family a happy new year! [check and check]

What you'll need:
Yellow icing (used Wilton icing coloring)
Red icing (used Wilton icing coloring)
Wilton black icing coloring
Edible gold glitter and sprinkles
Icing decorating bags (with couplers)
Icing tips: Round #12, Open star #14, Leaf #352
Small paint brush
How to create a dragon:
Spread a layer of yellow icing on your cupcakes.
Fill a decorating bag with red icing and use the round tip #12. Make the head by piping two large circles, and then pipe smaller circles to create the base of the body.
Unsure what to do from here, I added candy eyes and nostrils (with a toothpick dipped in Wilton black icing coloring) to make it look a bit more dragon-ish.
|Anorexic looking dragon. Needs some work!|
Fill an icing bag with yellow icing and use the leaf tip #352 to pipe some yellow spikes on top of the last cupcake to create some distinction for the tail.
Dip a toothpick in red coloring and "paint" a flame coming from the dragon's mouth.

On a side note - GO GIANTS!
