I think a cake cut in the shape of a badge would be cool - covered in fondant and decorate to look like an actual badge!

Can you get a picture of the badge to work from?
I'm making a cake for church this weekend with a badge on it... I googled the image, enlarged and then used as a template to cut it out of gumpaste. I painted w/ lustre dusts and it will be put on a sheet cake.

I did what Beachcakes did - I cut it out of gumpaste, (let it dry!) then painted it with gold lustre dust (thinned with vodka) and then I used a tiny paintbrush to put in the details - it worked out perfect. (I tried to find the pic to upload, but I don't know how to scan... icon_redface.gif )

I made a badge cake a few years ago for a friend in the volunteer fire dept. This was done all in buttercream, carved to match the shape of the badge.

Here is how I made a badge cake. I printed out a graphic of the badge on rice paper [ just used regular printer as it was not going to be an edible part] and mounted it on gum paste and let it dry completely hard. The 4 badges were made from gumpaste using a mold I made of the real badge using silicon mold compound.
