Eagle Court of Honor cake

When our good friends asked us to do a cake for their son’s Eagle Court of Honor ceremony, we jumped at the chance to honor our favorite boy scout. Our friends found the design online, and we made the cake as close to it as we could manage. The 12″ Mocha Madness bottom tier had mocha mousse filling and buttercream frosting. The 10″ Raspberry Rush tier had raspberry mousse filling with fresh raspberries folded in. The flag and the ropes were made with fondant. The non-edible eagle topper was provided to us which matched the topper in the original design. The fleur de lis motifs on the sides of the cake were molded with white chocolate.

    Mignna: Thank you! I believe they ordered the sculpture from Amazon. You could also find other sellers by searching on Google. Here’s one: http://tradershowcase.ecrater.com/p/14429348/wildlife-american-pride-bald-eagle

    Love this cake. I am wondering how you colored the fondant rope that color of yellow. It is just right. Thank you.
