I'm getting ready to do this tonight. Are you just rolling it out, or using it to make a figure? I'm going to figure route, so I'm just going to put the OD green on and put splotches of tan, brown, black, etc. on top of it. If I were to roll it, I'd start rolling the green a bit, then I'd put the little spots of other colors on top of and roll it all out together. Hope you figure it out!
I made camo fondant just last night to cover a 12 in. round cake. after making several shades of brown and green, i just tore off pieces and arranged them onto my Wilton roll & cut mat. i then ran my rolling pin over the blotches in order to meld the colors together. This created the PERFECT camo pattern. HOWEVER as i went to put it onto the cake, the fondant WOULD NOT separate from the mat! After re-coloring new fondant and rolling the blotches onto wax paper, it released MUCH better and was still an ok camo pattern.
Here's a great tutorial: http://sugaredblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/fondant-camo-hat.html
thank you flour pots
I did this a couple of weeks ago. I took brown, tan and green fondant and rolled each on in a "log". I twisted the 3 together then rolled it out. Worked like a charm for me! HTH!
I paint mine on white fondant- Istart with painting black lightly, for a grey, then paint differnt color brown and green leaves. Of course, Idont do army camo, I do hunting camo.
I haven't done camo fondant but I have done camo butter cream. http://allrecipes.com/Cook/Photo.aspx?photoID=218315
sweettreat101 Love the helmet
thank you flour pots
Very cool helmet sweettreat101...and done with buttercream...wow!
I really like the camouflage design.
We had a co worker who was going into the army so I made this cake for him as a send off. At that time I didn't use much fondant. Pain in the butt. I had to outline each shape fill it in and smooth with a paper towel.
Thank you to every one for your help
