My cousin was leaving for the Army so I made him an army helmet cake. This is a full sheet cake iced and sprayed to look like camouflage. The army hat is rice krispy treats formed into a hat and covered in army green fondant. I made the straps out of fondant and placed them on after I placed the hat on cake.
I made an American flag from fondant. I cut the fondant in strips, formed the strips to make the flag and used a rolling pin to make it look like it was one big piece. I placed it on the cake. I made dog tags out of fondant. I used real dog tags to press an image into the fondant. I also added plastic army men around the cake.
This cake was a huge hit and lightened the mood of sadness that day because of my cousin leaving. After doing this cake many people then requested camouflage cakes!
