the boy scout office has a cookie cutter that can give you an outline. I copied each of the badges up to eagle and placed on my sons cake. here was the cake and cookies I made.

I did a 3 tiered one last year where I piped the values around the outside in blue, and used red white and blue ribbon around the bottom. For the eagle on the top, I did it free hand in edible marker...HTH! the photo is in my gallery...

I did one recently, and what I did was get a picture of the emblem and trace it onto fondant and kind of build it...a layer at a time. It ended up kind of 3-D looking. For the eagle, I traced it onto fondant, and then "carved" the detail onto it and then brushed it with silver luster dust. I'll look and see if it's in my pics and add it if it's not. Good luck!

I did what rsaun did, using a toothpick and my hands pretty much! Here's a picture, http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=215193
There's a couple other cakes too, but all use the same type eagle, so if you want to look them up, feel free.

Using a copier to blow up the eagle medal (it was on the front of the invitation) to the size I needed is what helped me. I think I even put one under my clear fondant mat while I worked to make sure I didn't change the size/shape of it while I was doing the detail work. I had another one cut out and loose to use for reference. Once it was a couple days dry I painted it w/ lemon extract and Nu-silver luster dust.

Hope that helps!

I looked at the actual award, and copied it. I first cut the shape out of fondant (trace the real medal onto wax paper), then I free handed the rest. It is really easier than it looks.

Then I painted it silver with luster dust. I also hand painted the badges up to eagle free hand on discs cut from gp. It's in my pics. Use it if you would like.

I've done a bunch of these for our troop.
All were done freehand in buttercream.

Here is one example:

This is the easiest way I've found for adding the eagle badge to a cake (I'll try to attach a photo): Copy a picture of the badge at the size you want to use. Trace the outline onto thin cardboard and cut it out. Cover this with aluminum foil and secure with tape. Place the original picture on top of the foil and use a ballpoint pen to trace the lines of the design. You can now pipe over the lines with black icing (I use a #1 tip). I pipe the oval onto the cake (I used a 12X18 in the picture, but I have also used an 11X15) and fill in with red, white, and blue stars using a #16 tip. I use mini-marshmallows to lift the foil emblem off the cake and use icing to hold it in place. At the court of honor, the emblem comes off, and the cake is eaten. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.
