10 Eagle Scout cakes that’ll make you say ‘Sweet!’

An Eagle Scout court of honor is inherently great. I mean, you get to see a young man receive Scouting’s top honor after years of hard work.

But an Eagle Scout court of honor with a mouthwatering, eye-catching, it-looks-too-good-to-eat-but-I-will-anyway Eagle Scout cake?

Well that’s just the icing on the cake.

The 10 Eagle Scout cakes below are some of the best-looking I’ve ever seen, and I think you’ll agree. Just, please, no licking the screen.
