I was inspired to make this Homemade Deer Hunting Cake for my husband since he is a big hunter. I started off by making two cakes each in 13x9 inch pans. I then put buttercream frosting in between the cakes to keep them held together and stacked one on top of the other. The entire cake was frosted with buttercream frosting. I used a light brown dye for the top of the cake, a forest green for the sides of the cake. I used a dark brown and a tip of decorators choice for the top and bottom lining of the cake. I used some deep blue and made a small pond on the top of the cake.
I crushed up Oreos in a food processor and sprinkled it on the top of the cake to look like dirt. I then used some extra crushed Oreos and put a teaspoon of water in the mix to make it a little bit wet and rolled some yogurt covered raisins in to make them look "muddy". I spread a few on the top of the cake for rocks as well as outlined the pond with the raisins.
I had some forest trees and bucks as well as a hunter figurine that I put on the top of the cake. I took some more crushed Oreos and sprinkled on the bottom rim of the cake. Voila! Finished!
My friend son is a big deer hunter so on his birthday he wanted a Deer Hunt Birthday Cake. I found a hunter and deer, so I made a 12x15 sheet cake, and iced it all with white buttercream icing, then I used blue buttercream icing for the sky and added white clouds made with tip#3.
I sprayed the lower half of the cake using green icing spray by Wilton. I added extra to shade in like a hill. For the pond I used some blue buttercream icing. I used Tip#233 for pull out green grass around the pond and under deer I place the deer in this, and place a plastic tree behind him. For the Hunter I built the pull out green grass around him with trees around him. I placed pull out green grass to outline the border of the grass and sky and added small yellow flowers made with tip#16 around the top and bottom of cake I used tip#21 for shells.
I made this Deer Hunting Cake for a friend's 10 year old son who just started hunting this year, and shot his first deer.
I first started with the Camo Tent, made that out of gingerbread and made the camo colored icing and decorated with an icing brush in the camo pattern. Then in the cake I made a small well to fill with blue colored piping gel and created the creek with a small waterfall.Used chocolate cookie crumbs for the paths and colored coconut the with fall colors and bought the figurines to put into the cake (ie:hunters,deer,elk,duck,trees).
It is a white cake with my rendition of white chocolate buttercream frosting.
I decided to do this for my hubby's 45th birthday.. It was a blast to do.. The stream did take a little time, but I got it just how I wanted to.. Lets say my husband liked it so much he never even cut into it.. He said it was way to nice to cut.. I think that's the first time I haven't seen someone eat their birthday cake.
This Deer Hunter Cake was made for an avid deer hunter. It is a double layer 8-inch cake covered in camo fondant. The fondant deer head is sculpted by hand and painted with brown, black, pink and tan gel colors.
