Products Used:


Etch A Sketch

Gold Sherrifs Badge


  1. Bake 2, 9" square cakes, trim the cakes to make them level and use buttercream to layer the cakes together
  2. Ice the entire cake in yellow buttercream. The sides you just need a very thin coat to hold the white fondant on the sides
  3. Measure the actual height of the cake and then roll out your fondant and cut a strip the height of the cake. Then wrap the fondant around the sides of the cake and smooth. 
  4. Pipe a thick red border around the top of the cake and then use the smaller tip to pipe the inner grid lines.
  5. Place the toppers and badge
  6. Attach the Etch a Sketch to the side of the cake using a little melted chocolate.

Etch a Sketch

  1. Cut a rectangle out of red fondant and a smaller rectangle and two small circles out of white fondant.
  2. Layer the white fondant on the red fondant 
  3. Use a black edible marker to write your message

Sheriff's Badge

  1. melt milk chocolate nibs ( We recommended Van Leer as it is chocolate based and not waxed based). We find the best way to melt chocolate is to use a double-boiler or an electric frying pan filled with water and set to low. Chocolate melts at body temperature so you should be able to put your hand in the water it doesn't need to be that hot. 
  2. Fill the chocolate mold and then tap lightly on the counter once or twice to get rid of air bubbles and put in fridge for 5-7 minutes until set.  
  3. Pop the chocolates out of the mold
  4. Paint with edible gold paint.
