AI want to do a pink camo cake for my daughters birthday but im not sure if i should make one myself or get a sheetcake with a pink camo cake topper. I want two colors of pink and brown like the real pink camo. Any ideas?
Hi Mia, not sure if you're asking how to make pink camo? If this was your question, just get two shades of pink fondant, dark and light, then two shades of brown. Divide each colour into small lumps, arrange them together randomly, then get your rolling pin and roll them all out as one, and you have your pink camo fondant! Hope this helps!
AThats a good idea but its for her first birthday. Would she be able to eat it with her hands? Ive never had a cake with fondent so im not sure what its like.
Hope you understand what I mean in the pictures. Sometimes I don't excel at explaining myself.
AI saw a great idea to do cupcakes pink camo too. I thought that might be easier
I did the high density roller with buttercream way (above photos) and it worked perfectly! Perfect for a 1 year to dig into!
Rosie93095: great photo tutorial on cammo. Thanks for taking the time do post that. Cheers.
How did you even try to smooth down SMBC with a pattern like that? I would think that's definitely an american bc type project, no?
AZ- Yes, that is crusting American BC with butter and high ratio shortening mixed. I don't think I would try to use SMBC.
That still looks good MBalaska!
AZcouture: definitely a yes on that. I froze it. When I started smoothing it..... Immediately the little red warning light went off in my tiny pea brain....bing! should have used regular AMBC dummy.
I haven't made AMBC once since I discovered SMBC. I guess there's a time and a place for everything. Live & learn.
Ah shucks, thanks for being kind. My learning curve is more like a learning zigzag some days. thank goodness (or badness) I'm not trying to make a living like this......I'd starve!!!!
No, I know yours is American, I meant to direct that at MB. And ohhhhh yeah, once I made SMBC, I never made abc again!
Same here. I never liked the taste of the ABC and the SMBC is easier to work with IMO....
not pink, but here's my 'crusting' American ButterCream Cammo Cake.
didn't use that cool high-density-paint roller, just a fondant smoother & parchment. So it's not as smooth as Rosie93095s. Improvement comes with practice.
here's a shortcut to the tutorial on using the high density roller to smooth crusting buttercream
that someone made a few years ago. I'm looking forward to buying one & making another camo cake soon using Melvira's method
AI agree with others, I would use ABC & smooth with a viva paper towel. If you decide to try a Fondant, which is a lil too sweet for 1 yr old, it handles like clay. Cut random camo colors & shapes and roll together in a single 1/4 in thick sheet, large enough to cover cake. Diameter +2XHeight for a round. You could even do this with a rolled buttercream (just like Fondant, but tastes similar to BC). Hope that helps.
