When I took Mike McCarey's class some time ago, he said that he cut a lot of his cakes at an angle for static logos and that's what I did with this one (although you can't really tell it from the pics... grrr). It does make it easier to see!
For the logo, I had Chad enlarge the logo onto card stock paper and then use poor man's laminate (packing tape) to seal both sides. From that, I used the entire template to cut the light blue edging (using modeling chocolate, thank goodness). I then cut off the light blue edging from the template and cut the dark blue parts out. When I was done, my template was all cut up, but all my modeling chocolate pieces were exactly what I needed. I put everything together and the different levels of the modeling chocolate made it not so flat and gave it an extra little layer of dimension to it.
