You could find an image of the logo on the internet, print it out and cut out the letters and use that as a pattern to cut your rolled-out fondant. If you want it a little stiffer, print out the letters, glue them to cardboard and then cut them out. When you cut the fondant letters out, try to do it with a pizza cutter (which may be too big for the detail) or a smaller impression wheel. That keeps your fondant from moving around so much as you cut. You CAN cut it with a very sharp paring knife, but you need to go really slowly so the fondant won't distort as you cut. HTH.

I just print the size I want the letters.
Cut them out to make a template and
then use an exacto knife.

This was my first attempt at a logo.
I think it came out decent

If you look at my photos, I did a replica of the Toy Story logo.

I looked up the name of the font used for this logo, wrote "Kevin's Birthday 4" on a document, printed, traced with a super sharp knife on fondant, arranged to look like logo.

HTH!

I find it's easier if I roll out the fondant then let it dry a bit before I cut out the letters.
