This Takes (or Makes) the Cake



Aside from the badge presentation itself, the highlight of many courts of honor is the reception. And nothing makes for a better reception that great-looking and great-tasting food–often starting with that calorie-laden sheet cake in the middle of the table.

Now, BSA licensee YouCake is making it easy to create a custom cake topper that features BSA logos (like the Eagle Scout badge), text, and even a photo of your honoree. At the YouCake website, you can point and click your way to edible cake toppers that you can apply to a sheet cake, a cookie cake, even cupcakes. The toppers come in a sealed package and will stay fresh for 6-7 weeks.When you’re ready to decorate your cake, you simply peel away the waxed-paper backing and put the topper in place.

The toppers aren’t cheap–a 15″ by 10″ topper runs $25–but you can offset the cost by baking the cake yourself. For more information and how-to videos, visit the website.
