Any of our DIY stores will have them, B&Q, Homebase, Wickes etc. Also look in Wilkinsons, pound shops etc.
Basically anywhere that sells paint should have these small rollers icon_smile.gif

This is wonderful and easy to understand. Now, how do you do it with fondant?

That's exactly how I do it, except I'm a Viva gal!!

Everyone asks me how to do it, and I just say "Skill, people, skill"! If they only knew how easy.... icon_wink.gif

I know! When a customer comes by, I always make sure my paint roller is out of sight. icon_lol.gif

This is great! I have had no occasion to make a camouflage cake yet glad I have a reference for how to do it! It also makes me want to try melvira. I'm going to get a paint roller today! I've only ever used viva. Thanks again!

It is buttercream...just a VERY thin layer of it. I normally don't even crumbcoat this type of cake, but the camo colors need something to stick to.

Wonderful! Thank you so much for posting this!! When most of your clientele are military spouses, knowing how to do camo is very important!!

This is an outstanding picture tutorial, thank you! Sometimes something that seems simple is one of the hardest to acheive when you are standing there with your icing bags in hand, this is a huge help!
