AJust put "camo fondant" in the search bar of this site. A bunch of threads pop up; a lot of them have links to tutorials.

You could mix colours to get that effect ;-)

This camo tutorial was posted by jammjenks, and I thought to myself HOW COOL! and I just had to save it for future use. I have a son and a hubby who both like camoflage, so I'm sure I will use this idea in the future. Maybe you could PM her and ask how she made the colors. I actually would be curious too.

OMG I'm an idiot .. I totally skipped the 'fondant' part haha sorry icon_redface.gif

I should finish my first cup of coffee before posting on here lol

Maybe this will help instead. I also saw another post where the person (don't remember who sorry) cut random sized pieces of the different colored fondants, put them close together, then rolled it all together.. kinda like this one fondant camo hat

AJust color your batter and drop blobs of it in the pan. Don't swirl or marble it.

@ iCookibake...this was the one I had been searching for all night!! I ran across it months ago while searching for something else but didn't need it, so I didn't save it or anything...I remembered it when I was asked to do the camo cake and was like, "Where the heck is it?" Could not find it anywhere, guess 'cause I was searching for fondant when it was buttercream! You rock!!icon_biggrin.gif
