1Box Vanilla Cake MixUse the exact ingredients from the box except replace all the water for the same amount of the Coffee-mate Creamer that you chose
If you are making this into a Camo Cake- see tutorial below. You will need green and red food coloring
You will also need decorators icingenough to cover one cake
For the pretzel decorations:
Red and Blue Food Coloring
2packs Almond Bark or white Candy Coating
2packages of thick Pretzel rods that are cut with a serrated knife to the height of the cakejust measured the two cake pans together
white shimmer sprinklesI fund these by the cake mixes at Walmart
Bake the cake according to the package directions in 2 8 inch round cake pans(If making it look camo then see the tutorial below first). Let the cake cool completely before decorating. Ice the cake then place the covered pretzels around the sides in a red white and blue pattern.
For the pretzel rod decorations I suggest making these ahead of time!
I measured the circumference of my cake first and then lined up the pretzel rods and measured out exactly how many rods I would need to go around. I figured around 26 inches for an iced 8 inch cake. To make the pretzels you will need to work with one color at a time. Melt 6 blocks of the almond bark and either leave it white or color it with red or blue. Dip 1/3 of the rods with each color and coat them well and place them on wax paper to harden. Put sprinkles on the rods before they harden. Let them all harden before using them on the cake. To use them on the cake just press them into the sides of the already iced cake!
