I would like to make a birthday cake for my pastor.  He is a fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes.  Please help me to create the emblem for the top of the cake.

I made one for my husband. I printed out the logo and piped over it using royal icing . I've also used melted chocolate to make it and glued it to a lollipop stick to stand it on top of the cake.

Wow, that sounds easier to the method I usually use lol. I print out the logo in the size I need it and then trace the different parts of the logo and cut them out. Then I make the colors in fondant and cut out the fondant using the parts I cut out. It takes a lot of time if there are a lot of parts, but if done right, it looks amazing! I'll upload my photo and you can see the variety of cakes I've done using this method I came up with.

Thank you I will do that.  I was hoping there was a way I could actually find an already made logo.  It just seems hard to trace over.  I do want to use fondant for the logo but the cake will be buttercream.  I appreciate your comment.

It does sound much easier that what I was thinking.  I don't have much time and I wanted to see if I could find the emblem already the same size for the cake but every time I attempt to print from pinetrest it causes problem for my computer.  I also appreciate you guys prompt response.  Thank you very much.

Don't print from Pinterest.  Type in Ohio State logo in your internet browser. Save it. When I go to print, it let's me choose the size.

If you are going to trace over it, use parchment paper and tape it all down so it doesn't move. Then use pencil or edible marker to trace the image to the paper.

Thanks for sharing.  They both are great.  I've copied the logo and I will trace and apply to cake with fondant.

It helps to trace in daylight against a window or glass door. It's what I do at least =)
