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.
Eagle Scout cakes
These aren’t the real birds, formerly on the endangered species list, so you shouldn’t feel guilty about taking a bite of the sugary sweet bald eagle atop this Eagle Scout cake.
The sheer level of detail on this cake is remarkable. Earning the Eagle Scout award takes a lot of work, but this cake that showcases all of those steps was no picnic itself.
Recreating the oval Eagle Scout badge in cake form is a popular approach, but this one’s one of the best I’ve seen.
These little eagles make the perfect bite-size treat for Eagle Scout courts of honor. You dip a marshmallow in melted white chocolate and roll it in coconut to make the eagles’ feathers. Some people like to use cashews for the beak, but because of a nut allergy, this mom used caramels formed into the proper shape.
Would you believe the base for the eagle’s head on this masterpiece is homemade Rice Krispies Treats? I won’t believe it until I get to try a bite myself, because that sounds delicious!
Merit badges — at least 21 must be earned — are a key component of the journey to Eagle. They’re also the centerpiece of this sweet cake.
This super cake proves that Eagle Scouts are super men, indeed.
The actual Eagle Scout medal awarded to new Eagles is not edible. This larger-than-life version, however, most certainly is.
Sheet cakes are great, especially when topped with a soaring eagle made of meticulously piped icing. I mean, seriously, someone with an incredible amount of patience must have decorated this cake.
The path to Eagle is like climbing a mountain. That’s where this creative cake gets its inspiration.
