Do you want it standing up on the cake or just flat against it? 

 

If you want it flat against the cake, you should print the logo, put a piece of parchment paper over it or even a plastic sheet protector (like the ones for papers in a binder). That way you can see through to copy it. I would pipe it in royal icing and let it dry a couple days. Then you can lift it up and set it on the cake.

I want it standing up on the cake.  It's the cake topper.

I would make it out of gumpaste then. You'll have to allow yourself a couple days for drying time. You can make a template by printing the logo and cutting it out. Then use a small knife to cut it out. 

 

If you want it to have a curved shape, place it on parchment or waxed paper and wrap that around a cylinder...I use plastic drink pitchers for this. 

 

If you don't need it to be curved, you can attach a couple skewers to it with extra gumpaste.

 

That's how I would do it! I'm sure there are other ideas out there. :)
