Hello, all!

 

Wondering if anyone can help me. I've been asked to make a cake for a girl scout event on Monday that feeds around 40 people. I'm thinking of making a double layer 9 x 13 cake. I need to somehow get the girl scout emblem (the green one, with the girl's heads) on the cake. Should I do a transfer with piping gel? Should I create it out of Color Flow and place it on? I'm planning on frosting in buttercream. Any ideas?

 

TIA!

I think a frozen buttercream transfer (aka FBCT) would work nicely for that.  There's a number of videos online on how to do them.  As yours in only a two-colour, I think it would be quite straight-forward, and you could make it as big or as small as you like.

 

Or...you could make a template and cut it out of fondant and just place it on the top of the cake.

I am faster at royal icing and colour flow.  I like how I can put clear plastic over item, outline it then fill in with royal icing.  What are you better at?  Go with what you are more familiar ( and less stress) with doing.
