These Cakes Take the Cake

Standard

For a new Eagle Scout and his family, the highlight of the Eagle court of honor is undoubtedly the moment when the coveted badge is actually presented. For many guests, however, the highlight is … well, the reception. (Seriously, did you think your 12-year-old Scouts really enjoy long speeches and tearful mom hugs?)

While troops can (and do) all sorts of different things at their receptions, the standard reception tends to include soft drinks and cake. That can mean a basic $18 sheet cake from Costco–a cost-effective and yummy option–but it can also mean something a lot more memorable.

Thanks to Pinterest, you can find dozens, if not hundreds, of ideas with a click or two of your mouse. Here’s my favorite collection of images: http://www.pinterest.com/explore/eagle-scout-cake/. The cake should above, believe it or not, falls somewhere in the middle of the range from attractive to amazing.
