Coolest iPod Boy Scout Cake

My son’s cub scout troop had a bake auction. We decided to make an iPod Boy Scout Cake with a “scout theme”. The cake is a basic box cake baked in a rectangular baking dish. The icing is butter cream colored with grey and black food coloring. I discovered icing towels during this endeavor and realized that these are the best things since sliced bread (they make the icing really smooth).

We used decorating gel for the words on the cake, the earphones and general “outlining”. Hershey kisses were used for the earphones. The screen contains the boy scout motto (“Do Your Best”) as the selected song. The patch is a real cub scout patch. The cake was a big hit and sold for $40!!
