Camouflage cookie video tutorial

Time to send another care package to my soldier, so I thought I would demonstrate how I make camo on a cookie.

You start by making three colors of icing - 
tan, a grey/taupe, and army green.
To make the tan I used two parts Wilton ivory to .25 part brown.
Gray/taupe I used equal parts yellow and violet with a very small touch of black.
For the army green I used two parts yellow to one part violet and a small touch of black.  
It is perfectly OK to experiment here - start with small amounts of color and remember you can always darken the icing with a touch of black or lighten it with white food coloring.  

As you will see on the video, I try to keep the shapes straight because real camo has an almost pixelated appearance.  

I also want to share with you a fantastic way to support our military.  It is called Cup of Joe, and $2 will send a cup of coffee and a personal note to our soldiers deployed in dangerous areas where stress is high and amenities are low.  I think this in an incredible way to say thank you to these brave men and women who do so much for us.  
I'm going to be sending some coffee, how about you?

And now for my video tutorial!  I think you will see how quick and easy these are to do - you really can't make a mistake!

HOOAH friends!
