HI,?
I need to make a cake with a camoulflage design. I prefer not to use fondant-just buttercream. Any ideas out there? =)

here is one I did, I iced the whole cake in a crumb coat of white icing...then piped on squiggled areas of each color using a round tip (#10 I believe) and butted them right up against eachother, let it sit and then went over top of the whole thing with a high density foam paint roller.

Took about 20 min. from start to finish for a 1/2 sheet cake...very simple!

I do it the same way. Here's a tutorial I did some time back.

The one in my pictures I did by painting with Americolor and Wilton gels diluted with vodka. I did it on fondant, but you could do the same on Buttercream. I used an army green base and then painted dark green, brown and black for the camo.
