I have a cake order for a military cake and this person wants fondant. I want to know if its possible to make camoflauge colors out of fondant if so how? because the cakes I've seen were done out of icing. This person wants a half sheet cake and I was thinking of charging $160. Is that a good price or do I need to go higher?

I have done a few of these for my husband's unit. The most popular ones do not include camouflage, but the unit crests and the like (although these too were done in BC). I would imagine you can color your fondant any color you wish. If you're set on como (which I'm sure will be great!) just be sure to keep your colors "dirty". Army camo is not "clean", or bright. Be sure to muddy your greens with a TINY touch of red and or black. Brown helps with this too since it tends to be strong on the red side. usaribbon.gif

If I were doing it, I would cover it in fondant and then paint it using gel colors.

Is this for an active duty member?
If so, what branch of the service will it be for?
