Cub Scout Crossing Over Ceremony Cake

This cake was for my son’s Cub Scout Crossing Over Ceremony. 

That’s when, after a full year of hard work, they “cross over” to the next rank.  It’s an awesome ceremony and the kids are so proud!

This year, I was asked to make a cake representing each of the cub scout ranks, Tiger Scout, Wolf Scout, Bear Scout, and Weebelo (Dude was crossing from Wolf to Bear).

For the cake, I wanted to use the colors associated with each rank for the main color of the tier.  I pulled in my resident artist, Hubs, to draw each of the badges.  He did an absolutely amazing job!  I’m so lucky to have him!

Since this is one of the taller cakes I’ve made, and it needed to be delivered after it was already stacked, this was the first cake I’ve made with interior support (other than straws between tiers). 

Cue Hubs again who fitted a narrow PVC pipe into a board to act as my support.  It worked beautifully!

The scouts were thrilled with the cake!  The cake itself was carrot cake on the bottom tier, chocolate next, and marble for the top two tiers.
