Tonight is our Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet. Every year the scouts and their moms or dads decorate cakes to celebrate scouting. Last year I made The Luscious Orange Cake and put some Cub Scout flags on top. RedDog didn’t mine because he wanted his cake to be yummy more than anything else. But then we got to the dinner and there were some pretty awesome cakes.
This year a quick Pinterest search and RedDog wanted to play with fire! He knew as soon as he saw this campfire cake that we had to make it.
It was so fun to do together. Soren made the cake itself. Then he crushed all the red and yellow candies and we watched them melt in the oven. Once that was cooled, we used a sharp knife and hammer to break up the candy into “flames”.
Piroline cookies make the perfect logs. We stacked them up by adding a little frosting as glue. RedDog’s absolute favorite part of this cake is the edible chocolate rocks. We found them in the bulk candy section of our local Wegman’s grocery store.
I’m totally fine with the boxed cake mix and store bought frosting. I’m pretty sure the Cubs won’t mind either! The best part about this completely edible campfire? It made my boy super happy and he’s very excited to take it tonight.
Pinterest, you are a life saver!
