help with pink camo cake idea

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I 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!

Thats 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.

This was originally posted by jammjenks on another thread.  Just use the 2 shades of pink and 2 shades of brownicon_smile.gif
I had to do a camouflage (sp?) pattern today on part of a cake, so I thought I'd take pictures along the way. I see a lot of posts asking how to do camo in bc and I thought it may help someone else to see a visual.

Hope you understand what I mean in the pictures. Sometimes I don't excel at explaining myself.

I 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!

Camo Cake: here's my first one.  I couldn't get the SMBC to smooth down like yours Rosie93095, oh well. It's edible. I'll try AMC next time.

camo cake with fondant puppy & hat. First error was using SMBC, should have used AMBC. The icing wouldn't press down smooth, it just got sticky. Live & learn. I'll try it again later. Actually I don't want to eat this, it's too ugly. I just want to put it in the wash machine with some Tide detergent.

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.:duh:

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.
