I made the inside cake camo:
|This is what it looked like before it went in the oven|
|This is what it looked like when I flipped it out of the pan|
1. Make vanilla/white cake
2. Divide batter into three bowls
3. Color each bowl of batter a different color (I did black, brown and green)
4. Using an ice-cream scoop, I plopped out cake batter randomly across the pan
5. I than used a knife to swirl it all together so it was smooth and even before baking (not too much swirling or it will all turn to a grayish black color...kinda like your kids do to their paints when they first start painting.. lol)
That's it. Easy, right??
Next, I made a simple buttercream frosting and tinted it a tan color to match with the color scheme. Smeared it all over the cake to prepare for a nice smooth fondant cover.
For the fondant- I have a lot of white...so I colored the fondant. I put a big blob on my board and randomly put brown, black and green coloring in it. I than kneaded it all together so the colors could blend. I got a very grayish/army greenish color.
And, again with this whole time constraint issue, I decided to put a 'battle' scene on top of the cake. Max loved it and I think it turned out great!!
