Homemade Camo Gift Cake for a Military Man

Homemade Camo Gift Cake for a Military Man

I'm a cake decorator at a grocery store, I love when someone comes up and asks me to do something different. This homemade camo gift cake (for a military man...) is a quarter sheet 9x13 cake on the bottom then I cut a quarter sheet in half and put it on the quarter sheet then I cut the 1/8 of a sheet in half again and placed it on the 1/8.

I iced all the cakes separately before I stack them, as you can see it is for a military man going overseas and this was his farewell cake. I used buttercream to ice my cakes because I think the color stays longer and it looks nicer.

Your cake looks awesome but you cutting and arrangements of the cake don't make sense or add up. I'd like to do this for a little boys birthday who loves to play army with his Dad but I guess I'll just figure it out myself on the layers. Thanks for posting a picture of this great idea.

Very cool! and to comment on the negative comment on your cutting and arrangement did not make since, Am I right that the turret rotates so you off centered the layers for a reason! I am sure most of us got it!!!!

LOVE THIS cake!!! military brat daddy IS a marine and to the moron who posted the comment about the way u made the cake: obviously you are not artistic in any way!!!!! It looks great and I am sure the clients loved it. very professional!

Not sure
by: Melissa

As far as i can tel its done with a spray gun. I never received any information on this from the creator so im sorry i can give you anymore info. You can buy the cans if color mist at your local walmart or craft store usually and could make your own stencil out if paper or a light cardboard to contol the spray and over spray thats what i do when i have a specific shape i need (i dont have a spray gun yet). Maybe that will help i hope so anyway. Good luck!

Army/Camo Cake

I did this cake for my step son for his 13th Birthday: It is a marble cake mix, and the interior of the cake is also camoflauge. I used miltons ready made frosting mixed with cocoa for a tan mix and the chocolate, and green food coloring for the camo look. I used jelly beans for the sand bags and gram cracker sticks for the fort. All other items are real. This was my first cake... I have always bought them, but I wanted to make cakes for this quadruple birthday party. I had so much fun!

This Camo birthday cake is a 2 layer cake for my son's 8th birthday.

It is a marble cake with chocolate frosting. Then I made the camo colors using for the tan: white frosting with a little chocolate and for the camo green. I used white frosting with 15 drops of green food coloring and 2,3 drops of yellow and mixed a little chocolate in to get the "mossy" look.

Then my son added the army men to his liking and candles. Voila!
