I have a cake order for a camoflauge themed cake, and have no clue on how to do that print on the cake with icing icon_redface.gif . I've seen pics on cc but no one put how they did the design. Does anyone know how to do this?

TIA,

Well, i would base ice the cake in green then just put some dabs of brown and black on the cake and smooth out with a spatula and some paper towels.

Do you have an airbrush? That probably would work the best on icing (or even fondant really). I would get a sample of camo to look at, practice a bit on a paper towel or leftover fondant and then try your best on the actual cake.

I agree with Peg818. It would be especially easy with fondant: you would just put random shapes of brown and tan fondant over green fondant (or something like that) and roll over it to blend it in. Then cover your cake with it.
