Is it better to air brush the camo or put different colors of buttercream and then smooth? I like the buttercream for my cakes better than the fondant. How would you go about getting the different shades of color on there and still get it all smooth? I need to do a pink camo baby shower cake.

Thanks for any/all the help you can give.
