So here is a picture of my first fondant camo cake.
I made a marshmallow fondant recipe. I used Jet Puft swirled marshmallows (offered for a limited time only). Well, first let me tell you that I was going for a sandy camouflage look that I saw on my son's cargo shorts. When I saw the Jet Puft swirled marshmallows, I knew they would give me the sand color right away without having to dye it. When I rolled it out, I added patches of different colored fondant that I made ahead of time, dyed with Kelly Forest green. Then, I rolled these into the rolled out base fondant. When I had the finished fondant rolled out to the length I needed to cover the cake, I transferred it on top of the cake, trimmed it, then smoothed it out. Once this was done, I sprayed it with the Wilton Black Color Mist. This darkened the color of the fondant and brought out extra shades and tones that delivered a stronger camouflage effect.
While the result was not bakery perfect, I was happy with my first attempt at camo. Now, I know I can make it the next time even better with minor modifications. The boys will love it!
