Combat Cakes

My husband wanted me to make some cakes for work to welcome the new C.O. (Commanding Officer) to the unit. I was told "NOTHING WITH FLOWERS" ....tut! men, hey! So we came up with this! you can probably tell from the design he is in the Army.
The little boots that I made here were inspired from another flickr friend "Zalita" who kindly let me use her idea. I had intended to make more of these, but they were too time consuming!!!!.............. but I think one set is enough! The camouflage fondant took quite some time to make too, but the whole effect turned out great!

I have recently started making cakes for others than my family members. I am working on getting ideas together for a 4 yr old little boy's cake that I am going to be making. It will be a camo tank. Please e-mail me at a.masten@yahoo.com if you are willing to share you tips on how you made your camo! Thanks, and your creations are amazing!!

Since I never heard from the person I experimented and have spoke to an expert. First you color and roll out your base color still thick. Roll out the other colors then make cut outs and lay them on base color in any way that looks nice. Then continue rolling out base color. As it thins out it should all merge together to look like camo. Practice makes perfect so experiment before u have to make the real thing. This way also makes good animal prints. Like zebra and cheetah. !!!My email is klfarrell09@yahoo.com
