Are you wanting to do a sheet cake or a tiered cake? If a sheet cake you could do the girl scout symbol on it. If a tiered cake you could do gumpaste figures of girls doing different activities since the gs earn patches for the different activities they accomplish.

when I was a girl scout, I entered a cake decorating contest about girl scouts (that's what got me hooked on decorating). Anyhow, I did a cake with a tree on it and replicated about 3 or 4 patches that the girl scouts could earn on different branches of the tree.

How about a flat sheet cake cut to look like a GS vest (just draw out a template and lay it over the cake, carve then buttercream). In light choc. buttercream. You could do royal icing or fondant patches beforehand and just add them at the end.

The investiture ceremony is the welcoming one where the girls get their uniforms and pins, right? I'd do something with that. It could be cute if you did a tiered cake with a fondant "sash" out of the right color- blue, brown, or green depending on the age of the troop. It could drape down over the tiers and have "patches" with the troop number, name and council on it. And maybe a little fondant girl in uniform on the top, or else you could make some of the simple badges in gumpaste and attach around the sides of the cake with the treefoil design on the top. The GS website has a shop with a lot of cute awards that you could use as inspiration, and to see some of the patches/badges. HTH good luck, and post a picture when it's done.

I made an investiture cake a few years ago. I was asked to duplicate the patch on a sheet cake.
