Camouflage cakes are great for hunters, army men and mens' cakes, in general. Here are a few different variations of the popular color scheme.

Camouflage Cake

His party happened to be planned on the day of the rival game, so I decided to mix it up. The cake turned out to be huge, made with 3 different cake mixes. I then covered it with a tan colored fondant. I hand painted the camouflage color using gel colorings and vodka so it would dry quickly. The helmet cakes were baked in bowls and then carved to shape. They were also covered in dyed fondant. He loved the cake so much, he said it was the best birthday cake he had ever seen. That meant everything to me.

Hunter's Camo Cake

Some were piped onto the cake and others were made from gum paste for a 3D effect.  The cake topper was made from royal icing inspired by one of his hunting emblems.  I then drove 3 hours to surprise him with the cake at his job.  The cake was a hit with him and his co-workers.

Patriotic Cake

Hunting Cake

The cake was devils food filled with praline filling.  My grandson was thrilled and said it looked professionally done and tasted awesome!
