Do a Search inquiry in Cake Central - type in Camouflage Cake and in forum "How Do I"....I just did it and 46 matches came up - buttercream camo and fondant. You will have to look at the entries and see if you recognize the tutorial.

There was one short subject posted on November 20th (listed below) but I know there are better tutorials:

How do I make a camo effect like this one?

It looks like buttercream but I don't know, is it hand cut fondant? Can I put balls of different color fondant together and roll it out?

TIA!

I did a camo cake like this with buttercream. It's really pretty easy if you use the paper towel method to smooth it. Just pipe the colors in the shape you want and fill it in with BC Then do the next color and shape right next to it. Just basicall color it in as you would if you were drawing and coloring it with crayons. Then after it crusts, just smooth out the lines from piping with the paper towel.

Good luck!

Glad I could help.

I have to do a spiral carved "road-type" of cake today and I'm going to try to take pictures for another informal tutorial.

Sometimes pictures are just so much easier to follow.

I did this cake by piping sections (roughly) of the colors next to eachother, then went over it with a paint roller once it crusted....easy as could be!

I've made 2 camo cakes. One using the piping method and another using homemade stencils.

jammjenks, TIA for thinking of us and yes I love the picture tutorials, that way when I go to make it, I can just print it off. If you have time, I would appreciate if you would pm me and let me know when you post it. I sometimes miss some threads and I sure don't want to miss that one. TIA

BTW all of these cakes are awesome. Thank all of ya'll for sharing.

I'm working on it now. It has been carved and completely crumb-coated. It may take me a while to get my pics organized and such, but I have been taking pics and will post them when I get a chance.
