How can I make the logo but change the words??? I was thinking of making a fondant plaque and tracing the letters using royal icing or cutting them out of fondant. I found a similar font, but don't know how to change the shape of them to fit the logo. Word Art doesn't have that shape. Any ideas???

Sometimes when I have angle issues I print each letter in my chosen font seperately, cut them out and place them at the correct angle on another sheet of paper. Use a glue stick to secure them and then either cut them from fondant to place on my plaque or if your plaque is a light enough color you can use an artist's light box and paint them directly on the plaque.
Hope you find a better solution but it works in a pinch.

I have done it pretty low-tech. I took a copy of the basic outline, put it over the actual logo, and using a window, or a light box, draw your letters following the basic shape of the letters beneath them. Work from the outsides towards the center and fudge a bit if the letter count is different.

When do you need it? I'm a graphic design artist and this isn't hard. The only problem is that I won't be able to get to it until Friday or Saturday. I'm going out of town. I can help, just not quickly. My guess is you probably need it ASAP

Just take the basic logo and where the words are, cover it in black and then just write what you want on top.

You can print it or use it as a template to cut out gumpaste. What about a buttercream transfer? Have fun!

Hi there, was wondering the cost associated in the design of a cake logo using the Harley logo. I see you did a great job on one here already. I can make the cake myself, just wondering if you could do the logo?
