Hon, give people time to see your request. 30 minutes isn't much time. Not everyone is sitting at their computer to see each post as it is added.

I have NO idea what badge nor 'this sheet' you are talking about. Maybe other dont either.

Translation: arsenal badge = football club badge[logo]

Translation: sheet that claimed it didnt stick = some type of transparent parchment or paper to trace through, and ice onto

Translation: it just cracked everywhere when trying to take it off = the brittle royal icing floodwork did what it likes to do when moved ie cracked

Translation: how can i do the arsenal badge? = any other suggestions as to how to make a football club badge

Presumption: it's a cake that is a gift or for personal use ..

Do a frozen buttercream transfer. Or, white chocolate you melt and pipe to the shape and cool in the freezer. Both methods piped and frozen on wax paper. Once frozen, turn upside down onto cake, peel waxed paper off. Make sure youploy have an inverted image that you pipe on under the wax paper (an outline) so that when you turn it over on your cake it's right side up.
I have NEVER had anything stick to waxed paper, if you were Originally trying to do a frozen buttercream transfer maybe the buttercream had not been in the freezer long enough.

Royal Icing is fragile... It's the nature of the beast. When using royal, make sure allow enough time to dry... Meaning days. Be careful not to get it too thin, it's super fragile. Whenever I'm working with Royal, I ALWAYS make spares, because you can almost be guaranteed that something is going to break. I've had royal break on its own while drying. If you need the cake now, and don't have time at this point to wait a couple of days, I would definitely try the frozen buttercream technique, or roll out a piece of colored fondant and use white food coloring to paint it on.

I use wax paper to do my flood work on. I made a plaque saying (in my pics, breast cancer cake) with flood work and had my saying underneath wax paper. I did it days before I used it and it peeled of really easy from the wax paper.
