Paintball Birthday Cake
Cake for the son of a friend. Mint chocolate chip cake (chocolate cake with mint chips and mint frosting - heavy on the mint per the birthday boy's request). Covered and decorated with fondant.
Crates were made from gumpaste and then painted for a wood look. Barrels were also gumpaste, then painted with silver luster dust for a metallic shine. Guys made from marbleized gumpaste, and are holding gumpaste guns I made using silicone molds.
Cake board was covered in fondant and decorated with royal icing rivets. Paintball splat "Happy Birthday" was made from fondant with royal icing lettering.
Fondant lettering and molded guns on the top of the cake. Red "paintballs" are over-sized sugar sprinkles.
Cake was inspired by a paintball cake seen on Bakery Brennan. Thanks for looking!
