My grandson is turning one and his mom insists on camo...which I don't think is very babish. looks like it would be easy but sometimes looks are deceiving. Do you do outlines on it or do you just drop some different colors on the cake and then smoosh them out? Thanks!

I did a camoflauge cake for my neice's groom's cake this weekend. It was all buttercream. The base color was a lt tan color, then I just colored some of the remaining icing green, brown and orange, used my small spatula to "place" it on the cake. I let that sit a few minutes for it to crust, then I just VIVA'd it. Looked really good and was so easy. If you do a search for camoflauge cakes in the gallery section, you will see all kinds.

This thread was just on her yesterday, or the day before. It should be helpful icon_smile.gif

If you want something a little more "baby-ish" you can make your camoflauge out of baby blue colors. It will make it a much younger cake.
