Cub Scout Cake Awards

With four boys I was bound to find myself serving in our local Cub Scout troop.  After four plus years in Cubs, I’ve been to my fair share of Blue and Gold Banquets.  Our pack has a tradition of having each boy make and decorate a cake.  After they are “judged” we eat them for dessert.  One year I made awards for each of the cakes, only I made the awards before I had seen ANY of them.  I came up with as many categories and themes as I could and printed them off on glossy photo paper.  With a sharpie in hand, I wrote each child’s name on the back of the award that best went with their cake.  It worked out perfect, each boy felt their cake was appreciated and we had extra awards to spare.   Here is an example of one sheet of awards.  They are four to an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet.  There are 32 awards total.

  • Thank you so much for posting this. My assignment for th blue and gold banquet is to come up with categories for the cake awards. And it all has to be done FAST! You helped tremendously!

  • Thank you so much for sharing! I am not creative, but got this assignment and you’ve saved me and made it so much better for the boys! VERY GRATEFUL!!!

  • This is great. I only have one question. If I wanted to alter some of the award titles after downloading, how could I do that?

    • Noah,
      Right now I don’t have a way of doing that unless you hand write it on a blank.

  • Thank you thank you! A big help, going to pin this

  • Wonderful. We used these for our B&G in Frankfurt, Germany yesterday. We printed them on cardstock and the boys loved them. THANK YOU!!!

  • Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was looking for:-)

  • Hi! So excited I found your blog. These awards are exactly what I have been looking for. I wanted to see if their would be any way you could send me a link to be able to print off a page where you can fill in what the award is for? I did see you had a page that had 2 blank, but was hoping I could get a full page with 4 awards blank. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Thanks so much!

  • Thank you for posting these with the ability to print them out. They are awesome! Such an easy way to make the boys proud of their accomplishments and to call attention to their creations. Wonderful!
