Update: Apparently, the dragon wedding cake which originally inspired this post is not the only one of its kind. I offer for your consideration another fine example, this one from Suka of Tunisia.
You’ve probably seen this one already, but just in case, check out this fine specimen from Mike’s Amazing Cakes. (Site is Flash hell; if there’s a way to deep-link to the original, I don’t have the patience to hunt for it.) There’s also a gallery of images, though be warned: included are shots of this noble cake being cut and served, which I found surprisingly cringe-worthy. (I know: drink from the cup as though it’s already broken. I know, all right?)
It should come as no particular surprise, but there’s even an actual Pern-inspired cake (to go with the awful joke in the post title). Thanks to Shoshannah84 on deviantart.

Update 2009 Oct 23: The dragon-themed wedding cake is a more pervasive cultural phenomenon than I expected. Here’s one wrought of Lego® brand plastic brick thingits, or whatever the official word for those is now, via Gizmodo. (We like Gizmodo, even though their picture gallery interface is painful.)
Hmm, Legos and dragons. If it also involved one of zombies, ninjas, monkies or steampunk we could have ourselves a geek trifecta.
