A Good (Eagle) Scout

These young men totally brought it, with their wonderful Eagle Scout projects and honor to the promise! Impressive dedication and hard work.  Cookies for the congratulation ceremony tried to represent appropriately!

Scout’s Honor

Connor is loving the scout life.  I think the pinewood car derby has been his favorite activity so far. Snacking on cookies, however, rates pretty high up there too. 200 scout cookies were created for their bridging up celebration.DSC_0025.jpg

To make the cub scout cookies, I started with transfers: I piped the white icing outline of the wolf head (printed out appropriate sized images on a 8×11″ sheet and put a clean/washed acetate sheet over top).

Once the white icing had dried overnight (10 hours), I used edible markers (Rainbow Dust) to mark in the wolf face.

I flooded square cookies with yellow and, while the icing was still wet, placed the transfer in the corner. Again I waited for the cookie to dry overnight before using the same edible blue marker to write “cub scouts” (mimicking the cub scout logo)and adding the blue royal icing outline and fleur de lis.

While those were drying, I flooded the circles white (yep, let them dry overnight). The next day I took a red edible ink marker (my trusty set of Rainbow Dust markers) to draw the outline and details of the boy scout logo. To get a cohesive look for the set, I used the same color of blue royal icing to give dimension to the scouting eagle!

I also added some “down by the river” (theme for the night) cookies- but I forgot to take pictures of them!- and some cookies with scouting activity themes (camping, campfires, knots…). Kept that blue icing going!
