This FireCrab cake was created as part of the international Birthday Mischief Managed collaboration! The website is a must to check out! http://birthdaymischief.com
See how I created him and his special defense at https://youtu.be/oUEIhNyzQPs !
Study/Beast: Fire Crab Name: Maximus (short for MaximusAssBlastimus) Obviously a given name since Fire Crabs are most commonly are unable to communicate with wizards of any kind. Noteable Behaviors: Maximus absolutely loves when you scratch in the folds of his neck and his upper back (under his shell). Feeding notes: Favorite treats include fire ants, Fireball and flaming hot Cheetos. Fire Crabs HATE bologna and cheese sandwiches! If you try to feed them one they will retaliate. Injuries sustained by Caretaker and aide taken: Singed hair and 3rd degree burns, most notably on ankles. Injuries sustained by Study/Beast and aide taken: None. His protective crystal shell is literally rock hard and impenetrable by any item or spell while the creature is alive. Has study been released if you took it captive? If yes, where? No. Maximus has become a family member and though he is free to roam, chooses to stay under my protection where he cannot be killed for his shell. Any other notes you took during your study: Fire Crabs are truly sweet in nature. They only shoot their flames is self-defensive, fear or given their most hated snack. Myself, along with most other members of the Order, are more than prepare to severely punish those who attempt to harm these creatures in the darkest of ways.
HUGEEEEE shout out to Simi Cakes & Confections isomalt-which I used for all of those colorful crystals on the shell! And another shout out to the wonderful Satin Ice for their ever-so fabulous fondant!
“The Fire Crab is a large, turtle-like crab creature native to the island of Fiji. It has six legs, and a heavily jewelled shell, with different colors. It is able to defend itself by shooting flames from its rear end when it is attacked. The Fire Crab is a protected species, and a reservation has been created to protect this species from Muggles, who would value the jewelled shell, and wizards who use the shells as cauldrons. Fire Crabs are sold and exported as pets, but the owners require a special licence. The Ministry of Magic states that a competent wizard should be able to cope with this animal. Fifth years, for their Care of Magical Creatures O.W.L., had to demonstrate how to feed and clean out a Fire Crab cage without sustaining serious burns.” -http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Fire_crab
