This was for a guy who's going off to bootcamp. His fiancee requested it, and I'll be doing their wedding next semester. The cake shape is similar to one I saw on Cake Lava's website. I handpainted the camouflage and used silver pearl dust for the stars.
The dog tag was made out of fondant and silver dragees. I used gel piping to adhere them to the vinyl board and it seemed to hold well. Oh, because I took on too much this weekend, I had to resort to Wilton fondant and realized how much I don't like it! Too thick and doesn't give!
