Here's a buttercream camo tutorial

post #1 of 104
Thread Starter 
I had to do a camouflage (sp?) pattern today on part of a cake, so I thought I'd take pictures along the way. I see a lot of posts asking how to do camo in bc and I thought it may help someone else to see a visual.

Hope you understand what I mean in the pictures. Sometimes I don't excel at explaining myself.

You know it! That roller used to be white. The first one I had started out yellow and turned pink like that after a very short time. I do a ton of bc cakes, so use it all. the. time.

I got mine in the hardware section at Wal Mart. Imay06, do you have a walmart near you? If not, you can probably get one at any hardware store in the paint section.

Thanks so much for that Jam! I could have used that tutorial over a year ago. I made a cake for my son for his birthday. He is in the Army National Guard. My finished cake looked like your pic number 3! icon_cry.gif Kind of wormy.

Now I know what to do the next time. Thanks again! thumbs_up.gif

Aww, Cocobean. It doesn't look sad. I think it looks good. A roller would've smoothed it out, but it still looked good. thumbs_up.gif
