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.
