How to make a captain america shield cake?

My DS b-day Party is Friday, he wanted a scobby doo cake so I ordered that but his actually b-day is Monday and I found a cute little captain america cake topper and was going to make a mini cake for his actual b-day. My plan was to make a small round cake look like his shield then put the topper on top but I am lost on how to make one. Every cake I've looked at for instructions has fondant or tons of candy sprinkles but I don't want to use tons of candy sprinkles because frosting alone is too sweet.

Any suggestions? Also any one know a better thing to use that's easy to work with and not as sweet instead of frosting?

  • Place the icing in one of those bags with the pipette tips and do it the LONG way. So it looks like this

  • You can do marshmallow fondant, perhaps?
    (you can Google to find a recipe or tutorial you prefer)

  • well, most people don't actually eat the fondant anyway- they just pull it off...

    whipped cream icing maybe?

  • check stores like Michael's and even Wal Mart, see if they have sugar sheets. That's what I'm using to make my dd's zebra cake.
