I have to make a camo cake in early November. How in the WORLD do I do it?? It's for a groom's cake.

If it were me, I would see if I could get green, black, tan Wilton spray color and airbrush it. I've used the spray color, and it works well (just make sure you cover tabletop and try to create a canopy over it so you don't get overspray all over everything. I'm speaking from personal experience. Spray goes everywhere. If you have a place outdoors where you can spray this is also a very good idea. Too cold here in Ohio in November LOL.

I went to a friends wedding in September and the grooms cake was camo. What it looked like was the fondant on the cake was like a brown color, there were like a cream colored fondant strips that had been pressed into the cake and then it was air brushed.

If you dont have an air brush you could just paint the colors on...I'll post a pic of it
