Blue and Gold Banquet

I'm back. It's been a while and I've missed baking. Odd I know, but even under a deadline, baking is relaxing for me.

I was asked to bake a cake for our Cub Scout Pack's blue and gold banquet. It's a celebration of scouting held once a year. I had no idea what design I should make so I did what I also do, I used google. Once I found an idea, I started working on how I would make it.

The design had some pieces that I was worried would be difficult to make. I've had issues with my fondant not holding it's shape. But I was able to find a great product that helped a lot. It's Gum Tex. It makes fondant stiff so it holds it shape while you work with it. What a life saver.

I think it turned out pretty good. Attached are some pictures. Tell me what you think, I'd love the feedback.
