Would it be possible to do the camo pattern as a buttercream transfer?

Can I use a fondant roller instead?

Lucks has a camo sugar sheet that can be put over buttercream.

You can go online to look up Lucks. You also buy them from many of the other cake suppliers.

I did a camo cake last year wth buttercream. I made like 3 different "army" colors - light green, dark green and tan. I put each one in a separate bag. I did a crumb coat on the cake first. Then I put each color on the cake in random splotches. I put the cake in the fridge for a few minutes and then used a paper town to smooth the buttercream.

Check out my pictures, I just did a camo buttercream cake. Made 4 colors and piped them on with a number 6 tip in a random pattern then once crusted used the roller method to smooth it out and run the pattern together. Just need a small high density foam roller found at any paint center.

That is the tutorial I used for frosting my pink camo cake! It is a fantastic tutorial!

I did the cake part camo too by just dropping different colored cake mix blobs in a layer of white, then another layer of white batter and more blobs. The cake will be camo too! I have that cake in my pics. icon_smile.gif
