I've seen a cake done in camoflage and it was a tank. It would be very cool for a grooms cake. It was 3D. Let me see if I can find it....

when she said "all military" did she mention if she wanted a serious tribute to his service or if she was looking for something fun and lighthearted? if she wants something more serious you could go with a fbct of the Army seal then maybe a fondant flag draped on it. if she was looking for more lighthearted, the tank is a good choice, or any camo type cake.

also might want to find out what he does in the military!!! Maybe you could incorporate that, like if he's an Airborne Ranger you could do something w/ the Ranger tab/creed and jump wings or a parachute etc.... (ok, my ex dh and my current boyfriend are all of the above and then some, that's where i got the thought... lol) anyway depending on what the job is, some are VERY proud of what they do! might give us some insight... especially for those who have served (me, me, me! icon_wink.gif ) or have spouses that have/do.
