How to make Camouflage icing

I have wanted to try camouflage icing for a while now, so when the latest release for Body Combat came out a month or so back I wanted to make camouflage cookie for the instructors, who despite being paid to instruct the classes, in my opinion go above and beyond the call of duty in their devotion to us regulars.
At work things were conspiring against me to keep me busy, so I owe special thanks to Lisa from The Whole Cake & Caboodle who put together the photo tutorial for "how to" for us.

The camouflage icing was made using Satin Ice fonadnt. The base is 15 parts white to 1 part chocolate. Roll out base thinly but thicker than required for final cookie (as it will become thinner later when rolling)

The other colours were created with (1) Green 3 parts + red 1 part (2) Brown 1 part + green 2 parts + white 8 parts (3) Brown 1 part + white 4 parts

Splodge shapes on in layers using sugar syrup or cmc for glue – I do it from dark to light and make snake shapes and rough Y shapes. You don’t have to be to exact with glue but if it too much pops out the sides it will have to be dabbed dry.

Once pattern has been created bearing in mind the size required for what the camouflage is to be used for (large splodges for a cake or smaller splodges for cookies) flip it over and roll it in both directions. Rolling it will increase the size of the shapes but will meld them together.

Flip it over and cut/use as required.

My cookies had edible image printed of the body combat logo, these were attached with edible glue. Bear in mind you can only have logos/licensed characters printed if you are the license holder for the image, or the item is being made for the company who is the license holder of the image.
