How To Train Your Dragon Cake Recipe

If you’ve never seen these films, be sure to get caught up the first two, because they are super cute! In How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World , Hiccup is the Viking chief and ruler of Berk.

He created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia along with his fearsome Night Fury dragon, Toothless.

When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they’ve known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth.

How To Train Your Dragon Cake Tutorial

The secret to making a How to Train Your Dragon cake is to use my printables! I spent a long time designing printables that would work just right for a small cake.

I wanted to turn both dragons into cakes, so I used 5″ round cake pans. Click here for a 5″ round cake pan.

For these printables to work perfectly, I suggest a 5″-6″ cake pan. You can make one cake, but they sure look cute when you have both the white and black dragons together!

How To Make Dragon Cake Printables

First, download and print these dragon cake printables in the link below (scroll down).

Once you have printed and cut them out, start by hot gluing 1/2 inch cut paper straws onto the back of the eyes.

I used toothpicks to attach the other dragon parts into my cake.

IMPORTANT: When the paper touches the buttercream frosting, it can make the paper greasy. When inserting your printables into the cake, try leaving a gap between the paper and the cake if possible. I suggest not adding the printables until right before you are ready to serve the cake.

Toothless is black, so if the frosting touches the black paper, you can’t see any residue. Isn’t he cute?

I love how pretty the Light Fury cake turned out!

Make sure your printables do not touch the white dragon cake, because you will have some of the frosting soak into the white paper.

My fluffy white cake recipe is perfect for this dragon!

Easy How To Train Your Dragon Cake tutorial. Fluffy white cake recipe for a Night Fury or Light Fury dragon cake. A perfect birthday party cake!
Prep Time45 mins
Active Time30 mins
Total Time1 hr 15 mins
Yield: 10 people
Author: Amy Locurto

Ingredients

White Cake

  • cups  cake flour
  • cups  sugar
  • teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • egg whites room temperature
  • entire egg room temperature
  • cup  whole milk
  • 2   teaspoons  pure almond extract
  • ¾ cup  unsalted butter

White Buttercream Frosting

Instructions

White Cake Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and line three 5” or 6” inch cake pans with parchment paper. (I used 5 inch for my dragon cakes)
  • Whisk the eggs, milk, and almond extract together in a large bowl; set aside.
  • In a mixer, gently combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together.
  • Add butter and mix on low until you get a crumbly texture.
  • Add the liquid mixture a small portion at a time and mix until light and fluffy.
  • Pour the batter evenly into each cake pan.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes. You don’t want to over bake! Check at 15-20 minutes to test if it’s done by placing a toothpick in the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  • Let the cake cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pans.

Frosting Directions

  • In a mixer, cream the butter until it is smooth for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the confectioner's sugar 1/2 a cup at a time then mix another minute.
  • Add vanilla, a pinch of salt and milk until frosting has reached the preferred consistency.
  • If making the Night Fury cake, mix in black food gel a few drops at a time until you get the desired color.

Assembling the Cake

  • Make the top of the cakes even by using a serrated knife and cutting the cake top to level the surface.
  • Place bottom cake layer on a cake turntable or cake board and spread frosting to the top. Repeat until entire cake is assembled.
  • Complete frosting the cake by adding one thin layer all over and placing cake into the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Then add the final layer of frosting.
  • Add the How to Train Your Dragon printables into the cake as shown for the dragon.

Notes

*This recipe is for 1 cake. Double the cake recipe to make two cakes. 
If you prefer to use a cake mix: Use 2 cake mix boxes for one three layer cake. 
IMPORTANT: When paper touches the buttercream frosting, it can make the paper greasy. When inserting your printables into the cake, try leaving a gap between the paper and the cake if possible. I suggest not adding the printables until right before you are ready to display or serve the cake.

  1. Can’t wait to make one of these cakes this week for our boy’s birthday! Did you use pans that were 5”x2”or 5”x3”? Hard to tell from photos. Thanks!

  2. Making these for my daughter’s 9th birthday this weekend. Does the frosting recipe need doubled? I could only find thin 6 inch pans that came in a 5-pack so I want to make sure I have enough frosting for extra layer.

  3. Thank you so much for making these and sharing them! You’ve saved the day for my son’s How To Train Your Dragon party!

  4. These sounds wonderful! I’d love to see the cakes. You can email me, share a photo on my Facebook page or Instagram and use the hashtag #LivingLocurto. Thanks!

  5. Thanks so much for the printables!!

    I used box cake mix (it only takes ONE box per cake, btw, not two, but I figured it out pretty quickly!). I found the prospect of making black icing too daunting as well, so I used premade black fondant that I placed over dark chocolate icing for Night Fury, and it was perfect. I also used black or white plastic sheets the thickness of card stock for the ears and wings, and laminated the eyes which I printed on regular white card stock, so frosting staining the cutouts was not an issue. I wish I could post a picture, because they turned out great. Got tons of compliments and my son loved them for his themed birthday party.

    Oh, one other thing I did was leave the top layer of each cake rounded for a more realistic head shape, which I think was a cool effect also!

    Thanks again!!

  6. Do you know where to get the pattern for the dragon on the table with the cakes? Love your ideas and hope to see more. Thanks.

  7. Thank you for the printables. The cakes turned out so cute for my granddaughters birthday party Saturday.Wish I could post a picture.

  8. We are seeing the movie today, can’t wait! Such amazing work, love this and you make it look so easy!

  9. OMG isn’t Toothless the most adorable dragon EVER??? love these cakes and can’t wait to see the movie when it comes out!

  10. This is SO awesome!!! Thank you SO much for sharing the printables, pretty sure this will be the theme this Summer for my daughters birthday!!
