I am using this HTML code:

<div class="col-lg-4">
  <div class="panel">
    <div class="panel-heading">
      <div class="row">
        <div class="col-xs-3">
          <i class="fa fa-cogs fa-5x"></i>
        </div>
        <div class="col-xs-9 text-right">
          <div class="huge">
            <?=db_query("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM orders WHERE customer = '" . $_SESSION['customer'] . "' AND EntryDate BETWEEN '" . date('d-M-y', strtotime('Monday this week')) . "' AND '" . date('d-M-y', strtotime('Friday this week')) . "'");?>

Is it possible to make the icon larger than fa-5x? There is a lot of white space beneath it that I would like it to take up.

Font awesome is just a font so you can use the font size attribute in your CSS to change the size of the icon.

So you can just add a class to the icon like this:

.big-icon {
    font-size: 32px;
}
