A few years ago Thomas and I were Webelos leaders and we had a lot of fun learning about the Cub Scout organization. 2010 was the Boy Scouts of America's 100th Birthday. We celebrated in our February Pack Meeting by having a dinner and cake contest, which turned out great. We asked all of the boys who wanted to participate to decorate a Cub Scout-themed cake. All of the entries were voted on and awards were giving. We then ate cake! I love a contest turned dessert.
I wanted to bring a cake too, though I didn't enter the contest. I had a close friend come and give me a Fondant 101 class in my kitchen and here was the end result:
I just thought I'd pass on the cute cake idea for all you mothers of Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Now that my husband is the Scout Master in our area, I have a new appreciation for all those moms of Scouts.
Annie's Eats has an awesome post on making your own marshmallow fondant and great tips for using it. I think I'm going to try it soon!
