This week I had the opportunity to make a really awesome cake that I just had to share! It was for a little boy who is having a Nerf birthday party and wanted a camo cake! I was so excited to do my first camo cake inside and out.
Here is what I started with, four white cake mixes each colored different shades of black, brown and green.
Then I blobbed (for lack of a better word I made one up) each color into the extra large cake pan in small sections to give the camo look. This is right before I put it in the oven to bake.
Then when I turned it out after baking and cooling it looked like this.
I flipped it right side up onto my cake board and carved it to make a small “hill” on one side. I just LOVE how the inside turned out!
Then I iced with chocolate icing and homemade fondant leaves to give it a camo look on the outside.
Then I altered some Nerf darts I bought with toothpicks so they would stick around the cake.
Next I placed them around the cake and made a flag with his name on it for the top of the “hill”.
I also made some fondant dog tags that say happy birthday to hang around the flag pole.
I had lots of fun with this cake and really hope the birthday boy likes it also 🙂 thanks for stopping by!
