Hi, please how do i get the camo effect on cakes,thanks.
I've done a couple (in my pics) and all I do is use my spatula and spread each of the colors on, wait for it to "crust" and then use a paper towel to smooth.
thanks for you reply, but that did not look easy,how did you get the colours not to mix while icing with buttercream,I wonder if fondant will make it easier.
I've only done a camo cake once before, and I saved the camo effect for the piped border. I striped my bag with two shades of army green and two shades of brown. The cake was iced in army green, with the camo just around the edges. It came out really cool looking and the customer was very pleased. I'm guessing you could achieve a cool effect with fondant by piecing the colors together, then rolling them flat. I'll have to try it!
The colors will mix but just slightly where they come together.
If you use fondant frequently, it might be easier as you would take pieces of each color, placing them together then roll it out. Again you might get some mixing of color but that only adds to the look.
It's not as hard as you think. Practice on a plate or something. That will help!
I have a camo cake in my pictures. I used a star tip and piped in sections in one color and then changed to another color and piped in other sections etc. I left it with the star texture but if I was going to do it again I think I would smooth it with viva. I just didn't know about using viva when I made that cake.
thank you all
I made a camo cake for my sons b-day. (he's in the Army National Guard) It was a tee shirt with dog tags. I know about the viva method, but, I don't know why I didn't think about using it after piping the colors on this cake. I loved how the dog tags turned out but the texture of the piping I did on the shirt looks weird. Oh well my son didn't seem to notice.
