COD! Who doesn't play this game?! I became hip to it when after I got married it became clear to me that I could either watch my husband play this game for hours on end or try and join in. My husband has been a long time fan of Call of Duty and Modern Warfare games (Is there a difference between those two?) In the early days of my playing I found it incredibly difficult to maneuver which made for an all around very frustrating game. Within seconds of 're-spawning' I would be shot and killed again and again, or on the rare chance I had someone in my cross hairs I would get flustered and temporarily forget how the controllers worked and end up with my gun aimed at the sky and running around in circles, or stuck in the corner literally unable to maneuver out to shoot my opponents.
I'm convinced that besides me and my husband everyone who plays COD is a teenage or pre-teen boy. Don't believe me? Just listen to the chatter happening during any given match. There's the sound of wanna-be gangsta's rapping for I suppose everyone's 'listening pleasure' or the mindless conversations of gamers, who forgot their blue-tooth's were still on, talking about their day in junior high, or best yet the shrill pre-pubescence voice of teen boys cursing and telling each other how horrible campers are.(Campers = me!) Camping is the art of hiding in one spot and shooting anyone that happens to pass in front of you. I guess camping is a 'no-no' for true COD gamers due to the lack of skill it takes besides being able to find a good spot to hide. But lets be honest in a real life situation I would not run around in the open but I would hide to catch my enemy off guard and by surprise so yes I am an advocate for camping and also quite good at it!
Enjoy life with Cake,
PS. As always leave any questions in the comments below and we'll figure it out together!
I started the cake with carrot cake. This was the 'free' cold drink cozy
I got with the COD Ghosts game.
I'm sure the 'free' part was added back into the $60 game.
I used it as the templet for the Ghosts logo.
If you don't have a Ghosts cup cozy, print a pic from a Call of Duty Ghosts image search.
Drop it into word to adjust the size if needed for the size of your cake.
I filled the cake with a cream cheese frosting and covered the cake with black
fondant and a white and black camo.
To start your stencil use the cup cozy to trace out the Ghosts logo
onto a piece of regular printer paper.
Cut out the middle of the logo. This will allow only the
white parts of the logo to come through when its stenciled onto the cake.
Next use an edible color spray/mist to transfer
the design onto a piece of black fondant.
Most craft stores carry a Wilton pearl-essence spray that can be used.
I experimented on a scrap piece of fondant first
before trying to use the stencil on the cake. Don't worry too much about
getting the stencil perfectly even. Once the spray is on the fondant
you are going to go over it with white gel color so any inconsistencies can be evened out.
To make the 'Ghosts' logo even more accurate I also painted more detail onto the
fondant using white and black gel color and a small paint brush.
After a trial run or two transfer the stencil to the top of your chilled cake.
Again once I had the rough stencil in place then I painted more detail using gel food coloring.
Use extra black gel color to really make the eyes,
nose, and scar across the skull pop.
Next roll out white fondant and cut out 'CALL of DUTY' letters.
Secure the letters to the side of the cake with water.
The longer sides I painted GHOSTS on with more gel food coloring.
I also painted a little more camouflage pattern over the ghosts lettering.
But looking back at this picture I do like the white lettering
on the plain black background as well.
Chill the cake for at least a few hours to allow
the fondant to harden and all the gel color to dry.
A light coat of the white cake spray and Call of Duty Ghosts cake is done!
Now get out there and eat some cake and play some COD!
