Back in May, the Cub Scouts had their Blue and Gold Banquet. This is the only pack to which we’ve belonged that did it so late, but whatever. It worked.
There was a cake auction. I have never seen that done before either, but whatever. I am not talented in the cake decorating department. Not at all. I keep trying, and my creations taste yummy…and my family appreciates my efforts…but, I will not be winning prizes any time soon.
So, what to do about a cake for the auction? I finally came up with a camping scene, and 6 cake ball Cub Scouts sitting around a cake ball campfire roasting marshmallows.
And I took pictures, because I have to remember this. It will definitely make me laugh in years to come. And perhaps someone, like me, is googling “Cub Scout cake decorating ideas” and they will see this and be inspired to make something slightly more sophisticated. If you do, please send me pics. I’m not the envious type.

My girls took toothpicks and real marshmallows and made the roasting sticks. It would have been better with mini marshmallows, but I had reached the stage in a project where going to the store for one.more.thing. just was not an option, so they broke a big marshmallow into small pieces.
These are all Wolf Scouts, obviously, since that yellow frosting is supposed to be their neckerchief.
Room for improvement, but the kids liked it.
