Tint 5-6 colors...Moss Green,Lime green,brown,black,Beige..Just start piping large blob shapes mixing and matching the colors...I have also done camo with an airbrush.

ditto. I did one in 1996 with a cans of Betty Crocker for my college roommate who was in ROTC. I decorated the top with a dollar store pack of army men. Super easy even without the cake tools I now have.

I used the tutorial by Jammjenks here:

I used Indydebi's buttercream, used viva method to smooth, and did the camo all over instead of just the side. Jammjenks was a wonderful help for me.

Good Luck!
