Anyone ever done a camouflage cake in either fondant or buttercream. My grandson decided that's what he wants. Not sure if it would look more marbled than camo if I used three types of fondant.

I've done a camo cake - it was in the shape of a dog tag for a girl in the Army headed to Afhganastan (sp?). She provided a picture for me and it had pink in it. I used pink, black, white and brown fondant. For a guy. I'd substitute olive green for the pink. HTH.

I did the one in my gallery the same was as the tutorial (buttercream). It was easy and it's one of my favorite cakes still!

I had an idea for fondant that is basically the same, only you lay out your pieces of camo out on a green piece of fondant and then roll the camo pieces into the green piece of fondant. I experimented with one of my dummy cakes (the purple and white one in my photos) to see if this technique would work. It worked like a charm, but I haven't gotten a chance to do the actual camo yet. I just rolled out white fondant, rolled out purple fondant, cut a pinwheel shape out of the purple fondant, laid it on the white fondant, and using my rolling pin I rolled the two pieces into one. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for pieces of camo on green fondant.

Thank you everyone for the ideas. Now I know what I can try to do.
