camo icing

I have to do a grooms cake--army helmet--with camo icing. Any tips on the camp? Buttercream or fondant? TIA!!

I did a 2 tiered cake in fondant with a fondant bow on top. I then airbrushed it to look like camo. Came out really nice. The only advise is go easy on the airbrush so you don't get runs in the dye.

I've actually made camo with both fondant and bc. I used fondant on an army helmet and bc on a hunting camo cake. I found that the bc was easier but it may be because it was on a sheet cake. I myself would stick with the fondant on the helmet but that's just me.

I did buttercream camo, I just used a round tip in the different colors and squeezed it in the shapes that I wanted it. Then I used a paper towel to smooth it all out together.

Thanks for the tips! How would I best do fondant camo without an airbrush?

The way I made my fondant camo is, I rolled out a thin layer of fondant enough to cover the helmet, the lighter brown color and then went back and put the darker pieces on top. Pressed it into the lighter color with the rolling pin before placing on the cake.
