I'm trying to do a camoflauge cake, with the print with buttrcream. I've seen pics on cc but have no idea on how to do it. Does anyone have any advice on this?

I have never made one's what I would do:

Give the cake a good crumb coating. Pipe or spatula on a somewhat thick blob of one color icing, spreading in very irregular pattern until smooth; do the same with the other 2 colors, until the cake is completely covered. Won't hurt if some icing overlaps another color. Allow to curst and smooth well with paper towel.

I've never made one either, but I think you can also try is this:

Get several bags with couplers- no tips- and fill with the desired color you want.

Make several dots on the cake scattered around (in the different colors). The dots will look pointy, but when it crusts...get a Viva paper towel and smooth them out with the fondant smoother, as you would do with the Viva method. Once they've been smoothed out, it will probably look camoflouge-ish.

I hope this made sense! lol...
Good luck

I have one in my pictures. I simply colored buttercream in different colors and iced the cake in stages. It took a lot of time but I think it turned out ok.
