Does anyone have any helpful hints or tips on how to make a camo cake? I saw some pictures where people used buttercream piped in and then the viva method. How do you keep the others from crusting while you're filing in the rest of it? I use Sugarshacks buttercream recipe, and it crusts within about 15 min or so. Is there a fondant way to do it? Thanks for any tips and suggestions!!! thumbs_up.gif

I haven't done one yet, but will be very soon. I have found a way to do it with fondant on denascakes.com under her demonstrations. She goes into detail of how she does it. It looks like real hunting camo!

I actually just did one not to long ago. I made mine with a chocolate collar. Just used a couple different shades of green chocolate melts, black chocolate melts and reg chocolate. The cake its self was camo too. I really like how it turned out. There should be a pict of it in my photos.
