Coolest Campout Cake 8

Army Campout Cake

Army Campout Cake

This campout cake was made for my niece who was in JROTC in her high school. It was her 16th birthday.

The cake was just a box mix. I did one rectangle cake and the hill is the half football cake pan. The icing was Wiltons buttercream. I did the camo design with star tip. The river is white icing sprayed with blue coloring. The rocks are edible candy rocks I got from our candy store in our mall.

The fire is pretzel sticks with orange and yellow icing for the flames. The people are royal icing inside flannel bags. I just had some scrap flannel and I stitched 3 sides of a rectangle for the bags. The tents are toothpicks hot glued together.

Then I stitched 2 triangles and 2 rectangles together for the tent. It got hot glued to the toothpick frame and the slit for the door and it was done. Trust me, I can't sew, so it was as easy as it could get!

Homemade Camping Birthday Cake

Homemade Camping Birthday Cake

I made a camping birthday cake for my neighbor's son's 6th camping theme birthday party! The cake is boxed cake mixes, chocolate fudge and vanilla swirled with fudge icing in the middle. I always use the Frost & Pride from Staples for the outer icing, easy and light to spread.

I made the tent out of pop tarts, milk duds and Graham crackers with pretzels for the fire with some mixed red/orange icing in between. The table is made out of Graham crackers, Kit kat's for benches and Starbursts for the cushion and of course marshmallows on toothpicks by the fire.

The trees are ice cream cones with frosting and sprinkles. The river is with icing gel colored blue with Swedish fish floating down the river. With fondant I made the canoe, little boy and sleeping bag, bear with the honey pot, butterfly on the tent, squirrel on the side, flashlight and the last thought which was the biggest hit with the birthday boy - the snake!

This Homemade Camping Birthday Cake is the first cake that I have made to sell to someone! The top round layer is Swiss Chocolate with caramel filling. The square layer is lemon cake with whipped cream & lemon curd filling.

The lady who requested this cake said her husband enjoys camping, among other things, so I decided to go with that theme. From the ice cream cone trees to the fire pit with real marshmallows (I actually cooked them!) and wieners on sticks, this was a labour of love.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this cake, although I must admit, it was fairly labour-intensive!

The water is blue fondant covered with blue coloured piping gel, and there are white crystal sprinkles at the base of the waterfall to make it look frothy.

I hope you enjoy this cake, and get some ideas of your own from it!

Bake a 9x13 chocolate (dirt) cake for this Camping Tent Birthday Cake. Frost it green, very smooth. Build tent using chocolate pop tarts, pretzel sticks and brown frosting. Make a circle of brown frosting and add campfire, using chocolate rocks, pretzel sticks and orange/red frosting.

Fill one sugar cones with frosting, pipe out "needles" using star tip and stiff green frosting. Place on cake. Then fill two more sugar cones with frosting but insert these with pretzel rods (press all the way into the cone). Decorate with "needles" and place these into the cake. Add sprigs of grass on top of cake as well as to make your top and bottom borders.

Finish by adding black icing to your ladybug (red m&m) and bumblebee (yellow jellybean and almond slivers). Place on cake and you're done!

I love your cake. It is so simple but looks awesome. Did you actually fill the entire ice cream cone with frosting? did it not start falling out the bottom?

My original cake plan went to crumbs (literally) coming out of the cake pans(new recipe). So, I had to rethink my plan and used your cake as inspiration. Your details were very helpful. I did your cake and then added some other things. Thanks.
