Many families celebrate the end of their Eagle Scout’s court of honor with some food, including cake.
These Scouters shared their culinary creations with us, and we’re showcasing them here.
Vaughn Ramirez’s sister Bailey made this cake for his Eagle Scout court of honor. Using fondant, she recreated all of his merit badges, in the same order as they appear on his sash. Vaughn is part of Troop 380 in Louisville, Ky.
Christine Hannam came up with this spread of a cake, cupcakes and cookies for her son Jeffrey, who earned the Eagle Scout rank with Troop 8 of Cambria, N.Y.
Instead of a cake, Will Strecker of Troop 623 of Magnolia, Texas, asked for cupcakes to celebrate earning his Eagle Scout rank. His family surprised him by decorating them with images of all the merit badges he earned.
This cake celebrates two Eagle Scouts — Bryan Ruiz and Huy Tran of Troop 484 of Clayton, Calif. — who had a joint Eagle Scout court of honor.
Scouter Rose Grumbine bakes and decorates gifts to the Eagle Scouts of Troop 57 of Aurora, Ill. Here is one of them for a Scout who was involved in the Order of the Arrow.
This three-tier cake honoring Antoni Estopinan of Troop 43 in Miami, Fla., is topped with an impressive-looking eagle and American flag.
You don’t have to make the cake. The Crews family of Troop 149, Brook, Ind., went to a local bakery and asked for a cake that simply said “Congratulations, Ryan” and had the Scouting photo. The bakery did the rest with the patriotic theme. For more on working with bakeries, see this page.
Scouter Laura Brunmeier with Troop 4953 in Boyne City, Mich., created this cupcake tower and eagle, which was sculpted using chocolate.
