Bears birthday.

Camo second time round

My brother asked me to make a cake for my nephew, funnily enough he said he wanted to same cake as last year.  Not one for doing the exact same cake I said yes but id change it a little! I kept the Camo fondant the same, which you can find my DIY tutorial here. And…
