As mentioned, Zaxwerks would do an excellent job at this. However, if you haven't got Zaxwerks, you could always try it with one of these options [link]. You'd have difficulty with that inset face with some of the techniques.

You could also try it with Forge Freeform. I haven't used it myself, but I've been wondering if you could use it for 3d text...
