While there are many tips out there on how to create a tank birthday cake, you may find that these are often tedious, time consuming, and difficult to perform.

If, after reviewing the pictures on this page, you find that you are still experiencing a little difficulty in determining the best technique for your creation, the following instructions may assist you:

Instructions on Creating a Simple Army Tank Cake

Items Needed:

  • Large Square Cake Pan
  • Loaf Pan
  • Small Round Oven Safe Dish
  • Chocolate Cake Mixes
  • White Fondant
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Brown Food Coloring
  • Black Food Coloring
  • Roller
  • Cake Tray

Step 1: Take the chocolate cake mixes and turn them into batter, according to the instructions on the cake mix boxes. Once you have created the batter, place them into the large square cake pan, the loaf pan, and the oven safe glass dish, based on the baking instructions outlined on the mix boxes.

Step 2: Bake the cake in the large square pan, the loaf pan, and the oven safe glass dish as your oven space permits and then allow each to cool.

Step 3: As the cakes are cooling, you should mix the white fondant with each of the food colors that you want to create. You will be creating camouflage colors. These should include a light green, a deep forest green, a brown, and possibly a cream color. You will simply add each of the food colors to the fondant until you create the colors that you desire. The black should be combined with the green in the white fondant to create a deep forest green color.

Step 4: Next, take each of the fondant colors that you created and roll them out into thin, rounded strips. You should then line each of the strips up – side by side – and roll out the fondant. This will create a marbleized, camouflage.

Step 5: Next, take the square cake pan and move the cake from it onto a cake tray. On top of that, you will place the cake from the loaf pan. Then, on the end of that cake, you will place the round cake from the small oven safe dish.

Step 6: You will then place the rolled camouflage fondant across the entire cake, trimming and smoothing for a perfect fit.

Step 7: Use any additional brown fondant to create wheels and tracks for the tank cake.

Now, you have several pictures that you may study and detailed instructions on how to create your very own tank birthday cake.
