- I was extremely honored when asked by a dear friend to create this cake for her son’s Eagle Scout celebration. Making Eagle scout is such a huge accomplishment for any young man and deserves a special celebration cake…
Before I go too much farther, let me say that the Eagle topper is an actual statue provided by the client that I added to the finished cake…I didn’t make it.
But all of the other details are made from homemade marshmallow fondant.
The 2-tiered (8″-6″) vanilla sour cream cake is smooth-iced with vanilla buttercream. The draped flag, gold cording, and fleur-de-lis symbols are made from fondant.
I had had to create a special platform covered in fondant with extra support on the top tier to hold the heavy Eagle statue, which was placed on the cake at the venue. It made it easy to remove the topper in order to serve the cake.
Congrats again on the incredible accomplishment, J.J., it was an honor to make your cake!
