Hi all, I'm going to attempt a camouflage covered cake and am unsure on how to start??? I think I am going to use 2 different tones of green in should I cut each individual shape then roll together to make one big peice of icing to fit my cake or should I just marble them together.....your help would be great.

either works, with different effects.

cut and roll > very pronounced pattern

marble -- more subtle to point it might not look like right.


could even do a combine approach ---

marble and roll thick then lay on random pieces and roll until thin enough to cover cake


saw one cake on here (can't find it now tho') where the person used an oak leaf shaped cookie cutter to get the various pieces. then laid then one top of each other randomly. then rolled into one solid sheet. very effective.

I have only done a camo covered cake in buttercream. It wasn't hard. I just made up 3 different colors: moss green, brown and black. I just added each color in random placement then used a foam roller to set the colors.

i did the same thing as dmheart! icon_biggrin.gif it was actually really easy and a lot of fun. I believe i have it in my photos and it has a deer on top of it.

doug has some great ideas on how to do it with fondant as well icon_wink.gif

I have done a camo paintball T-shirt cake. I've used brown-green mix to get a "kaki " colour and then used different shades of green and brown to paint on. In my photos...

I have done a camo cake. It's in my photos. It was a grooms cake for my son in law. he said he wanted a G I Joe cake for a wedding cake so i suprised him with the small grooms cake.
All I did was place patches of army colors together and rolled out. i think I used 4 colors, moss green , green, black and khaki. I added more pieces until it was large enough to cover the cakes. It seemed to have worked.

Hope that helps!
