Hi i have a arsenal cake to make, im going to do a square white cake and make the badge for the middle. i was just wondering what colours peple have used previously as iv found some blues but nothink that seems to match.
Also how do people get the badge so perfect, do you use a template for each bit?

How about getting the badge printed as an edible image?

Hi, i did think of that one but you can get that done in tesco straigh nto a cake so wanted this one to look a bit more expensive so though making the badge would be better.

You could print out the badge to what size you want it onto thin card and then get a craft knife and cut it like a jigsaw so you can use the bits as templates to cut out the different colour fondants so you can build it up instead of it being a flat picture.

Hope you get what i mean(eg the gun would be one part)

I did this for the halo cake in my photos.

I have done this logo twice now. I googled a black and white image printed it off and used it as a template and put it together jigsaw style. My colours weren't exact the first details were in brown and the 2nd cake I did yellow as I do not have steady enough hand to paint the gold on but neither recipient minded. infact they were really pleased with the result. i only have one picture in my photos as they were duplicate cakes so no piont in posting both.
If you have the skills you could try flooding with RI.

Thankyou for your help, what colour did you use for the blue on the badge? was it the navy roll out icing as that looks quite dark to me. i was going to buy one of the gold aerosols to do the bit around the edge.

I started with baby blue and then added sky blue, lots of it.

Hi I did this one with red and burgundy (half and half) base, I printed off the badge (exact size i wanted) then added colours to match the badge and laid them over jigsaw style. I will post my pics if you want to view

For football team cakes I sometimes use an edible image and what I do is mount it onto a 50/50 plaque (50% flower paste 50% fondant) and let it dry a little. I then cut round it with an exacto knife. It makes it look more expensive and different and gives a 2D effect. I have also done RI run outs after making a template and done like that. Arsenal to me is red and white

You can see some on my photos or website of some football cakes done like above
