I thought there was a tutorial on here somewhere about the best way to make camoflague out of fondant.

I have searched and searched, can't find anything, anyone know where it is or is it all in my head?

Thanks

I can't remember seeing camo out of fondant but there is a tutorial to make camo out of buttercream. I've tried it and it comes out great! A little time consuming but worth the effort. HTH

I had a request for a hunter's cake. I researched on the internet and did not find any camo fondant or buttercream camo that I liked. I decided to cover cake in thin layer of camo green buttercream then add fondant cut outs of leaves in different colors. The picture's not good but here is one of the camo cakes I did. I also made limbs and trigs out of fondant also for cake. All is fondant on cake except for deer. http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1691436.html HTH

That was how I thought of doing it, nice to see that it will work.

@ kim


My problem was it is for a paintball cake so the leaf effect wouldn't be suitable but thanks for taking time to answer.

When I do it, I like to roll out one color of fondant, then place blobs of all the other colors on top, then finish rolling it out. I find I have a more cohesive piece that doesn't try to break once it stretching it onto a cake this way.
