I have had several people send me this picture and I don't have any idea how the camo side was done. 

It looks like an edible image, but since it is a round cake I don't understand how they applied it without being wrinkled.

Does anyone know how this was done?

Hit submit before I was ready Lol if it is hand painted, it is amazing and it looks like a lot of work!

i'm going with edible image because the pattern repeats -- i'd been hard pressed to not let a few sticks poke out of the pink side and a leetle pink slip into the camo -- just a little :)

I have been asked to make the cake in this post.  I was wondering if you have any tips on how to line up the edible image so the top lines up with the side.  I have purchased edible image to practice with.  I was planning on cutting a half circle for the top and then cutting a strip for the side from same general area as we're the half circle was cut.  Any tips on making this cake would be greatly appreciated.

Since the design is rather busy, I wonder if you could wrap the sides and then cut notches (like a series do small v-shaped cutouts) that would then be pressed up over the edge and onto the exposed portion of the top. The pattern is busy enough that I bet it would blend right in and no one would know, and you could get that smooth edge look by avoiding a seam.

Jselle, thank you for tip.  I will be making a test cake this week and will try what you suggested.

It is a repeated edible image sheet it's called "Mossy Oak Woodland Camo" applied very carefully, it's available online.

Help, I can not get the edible image to go on seamless. I tried Jselle suggestions and I had cracks in the image.  I am using Swiss meringue buttercream frosting and the image is not absorbing into it.  I have also tried the tutorial with digital camo with no luck.  Is possible the edible image sugar sheet is too thick.  Does one have any suggestions?
