Boy Scout Cake
by Mildred Delgado
This is an actual size boy scout shirt. For this cake I made 2 chocolate sheet cakes. I used the an entire one to fit the torso; the 2nd one, my husband carved it to fill the sides and the upper part and the sleeves.
The sheet cake was too narrow for the shirt size that I want it that's why we had to put some more cake to fill in the torso.
The cake was 27" long and 25" wide. I covered with chocolate icing and then I covered with fondant.
I made the pockets, buttons, side sleeve pocket, and neck collar with fondant and I had to let the fondant ( the neck collar) dry overnight.
The next day, I airbrushed the cake with a mix of gold sheen and few drops of brown color, to create the khaki color that the boy scouts uniform has.
This was trial and error until I got the color I was looking for. I made the green sash using wilton's juniper green color, it gave me the mossy green color I was looking for. Then I started to add the merit badges on the sash. They were 36 merit badges only on the sash.
I printed them with my cake printer. They were placed on the sash in the order the boy scout earned them.
I made the others badges, ribbons, medals, US flags on the sleeves, troop information and placed them exactly as he has on his shirt.
