This summer I had an opportunity to make a paintball cake for a young man's 12th birthday. His mom had some ideas in terms of design, and had one very specific request, she wanted the inside to be camouflaged. Oooohhhh...that sounds fun. Here's how I managed to do that. First things first, bake the cake. I had to make three batches of cake batter. Two of the batches were WASC, I just colored one of the olive green, and the third was a chocolate flavor.
Once the batter was made I had to alternate the batters into the cake pans until all were used and full.
Ready for the oven.
Baked & Leveled. How cool did they turn out?!?! I know I was excited!
To finish off the cake, I iced in in plain white buttercream, made a target and covered it in "paintball" gumballs. I was super excited about the final product! Here it is. Whatcha think??
