A friend of mine asked me to make a birthday cake for her son who is turning eight. That's a pretty big age for boys in our neck of the woods. They are baptized and become members of our church, and they get to be Cub Scouts. Her son was very excited about the Cub Scout part, so she requested a Cub Scout cake. He got his wish!
The cake is chocolate with a fondant finish. The badges are done with edible ink.
