I was very proud to be part of the team that worked on the 4 Wing Cold Lake submission to the 50th Anniversary of Logistics in the Canadian Armed Forces. I was mostly coach/teacher/mentor (although I did a fair amount of labour, too) to two lovely ladies who had never worked at this type of cake decorating before, and they were awesome students. The rules of the competition are simple. Everything on the cake must be edible, and it must represent Logistics. Everything on the cake is either fondant or gumpaste; the gumpaste pieces have been appliquéed with icing sheet prints, airbrushed, hand-painted, dry-brushed, glazed, or a combination of those techniques, with the different trade logos within Logistics, as well as the 4 Wing and Logistics Branch Crests. The brand new Mission Support Squadron crest has been applied to a banner draped down one side. To represent the serving members, each tier represents an elemental DEU tunic. Air Force on the bottom, army in the middle, and navy on top, with a white tier to represent the civilian sector.
