The other day my ds was sitting with me looking at cakes. He got very exited every time he saw an Elmo cake. He started saying Elmo birthday please. then he said orange and camo too. How can I combine Elmo with orange, and camo and make it look good?
so far my idea is a fbct of Elmo, an orange 3 on camo fondant but it doesn't look great when I picture it.
Thanks in advance.

Hunters use both camo, and blaze orange pieces.

Could Elmo be in hunting gear in a swamp, looking for Kermit? Or butterflies?

Where would I find a picture like that? Ds has been asking to hunt with daddy for a few days now.

I used my Elmo pan with candy melts and inserted that heavy thing on the top of a two tiered round. It was really cute. Theres a pic in my photos. You could always camo the rounds and have elmo on the top. Be aware though -- the candy melt is VERY heavy. I had a thick dowel through the center of Elmo and poured candy melts around the dowel and into the cake to hold him up. It worked though and the cake was a hit.

Here's an adorable group of kids getting ready for hunting. Hunting camo is more like the actual trees and bushes, military camo is splotches.

I think I have your answer. I saw it about a month ago when looking for hunting cakes...
