Is there a good trick to creating the boy scout emblem or eagle scout emblem out of fondant/gumpaste? I'm not good at free hand...are there any molds out there? Ideas?

You could try tracing the image onto wax paper and then lay it over your fondant/gumpaste and cut out with an exacto knife. I don't know specifically about a mold. You might be able to make your own. There's a tutorial on here somewhere. The one for making lace molds is on the main page. You can probably adapt that if you have one of the patches that goes on the uniform.

I actually just made an Eagle Scout Badge for a Court of Honor tomorrow. I found a simple pic and printed it out and used an excato knife to cut out the parts and then water to glue" them together.

Another optionis to use royal icing. Print out the design, cover it with wax paper and trace it. Use stiff RI to make the outlines and then fill in with thined out RI.

It's what I used to make the cowboy, skull and bakugan cakes in my pics. HTH.

I have candy molds that are the boy scout and cub scout emblems. I am making a 5 tier cake for our Blue and Gold banquet in 2 weeks. Each tier is a certain theme. I am usig theme as push molds for fondant. Then I am going to paint them. You could do a chocolate transfer.

Print off a picture of what you want on your cake. You may have to reverse the image. Melt your chocolate like you would if you were going to put into a mold. I use white chocolate and color it the color I want using candy colors. I take the picture and tape it down to a cake circle and then tape wax paper on top of the picture. I put my melted chocolate into a icing bag with a # 2 tip and outline the picture, I usually use black, then I just go from color to color, after each color, I put it in the freezer until I get my next color ready. After it is completed I leave it in the freezer until all is set, then carefully turn it over on another cake circle, then pick it up and attach to cake.

If you have a local scout shop they might have the candy molds, our scout shop always has them in stock.

Sam's Club will put the Boy Scout logo on a cake. You might check there if you have one in your area. Maybe they'd sell you an edible image??

I made one by printing out a copy of the image, making a template out of cardboard and tracing on fondant. I used gold luster dust to paint it. It was very easy.
