Received an order from a customer for a 1/2 sheet cake for next weekend for her son who has returned home from Iraq with the Marines. Need thoughts if you have any on a cake idea without using the exact marine logo. Thank you!!
Many units have a special patch made up for their deployments. If you can get a copy of one (or even the traditional Unit patch), you can trace it onto the cake, outline it in black royal icing and do a stained glass effect by filling in the rest with tinted gel. My Sgt is promoted this week and I am doing a Warrant Officer rank on a cake with the Same technique as a gift.
You could make it look like a shirt he usually wears or the one he will be coming home in. You could make it look like an American flag and then make a 3D replica of his hat (and maybe some dog tags) and place it on top & pipe out a welcome home message on top. Instead of a flag on top, you could do bunting on the sides instead. Or you could make a FBCT for the top of what he specifically does in the Marines.
Thank you for your replies! I appreciate it!!!!
Maybe a camouflage cake? The all BC camo cakes are awesome! You could do a FBCT of the Marine logo (eagle globe anchor) to complete it
