Eagle Scouts deserve recognition. Having earned the Boy Scouts of America’s highest award, being named an Eagle Scout is a true achievement. For a recent scout, we were honored to help celebrate this achievement with a custom Eagle Scout Cake.
For this cake, the concept was to highlight the Eagle Scout medal, the name of the scout (AJ), and feature some of AJ’s favorite merit badges.
The cake topper featured an edible AJ on top of the scout motto, “Be Prepared.” The metallic look was achieved by painting the sugar with edible inks.
The top tier of the cake featured an edible Eagle attached to a red, white, and blue background. This was modeled after the Eagle badge each scout receives when achieving this rank.
The border of the top tier used an edible gold rope with a knot. Surprisingly, the knot gave us a little more trouble than we had expected. Bonus points if you can recognize what knot we tied. =)
The middle tier showcased AJ’s merit badges. Of course we couldn’t fit all of his badges, but we did create 24 of them… all in sugar… and placed onto an edible merit badge sash.
The bottom tier of this 3 tiered cake featured dark green stripes, matching the scout uniform. We used colors from both the Eagle badge/medal and the scout uniform as the color pallet for the cake.
We truly enjoyed creating this Eagle Scout cake and helping to celebrate this wonderful achievement. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, every celebration deserves Dream Day Cakes. =)
