There’s one very cool picture of a cake that someone has made for a 12-year-old paint ball wizard on Cakecentral.com at this address:- cakecentral.com/gallery/455413

Of course, seeing a picture is one thing - making a cake is quite another.  So here are a few ideas on how you could set about making a cake for your Grandson’s paintball party.

I would suggest a Victoria sponge mixture for the cake itself.  This is easy to make, easy to cut up and easy for kids to eat without making too much mess!  The classic recipe for Victoria sponge is the two-egg sponge.  This means that you start with two large eggs and weigh them.  Whatever they weigh (usually somewhere around 130 to 140 grams) then use the same amount of butter, sugar and flour.

The usual way of making the cake batter is to first combine the sugar the butter until you get a white fluffy mixture (you may need to cut up the butter into small pieces and also warm the bowl a little make them combine well).

Then add half the flour and one of the eggs which you have beaten in advance. Stir them well together in the mixing bowl and then add the remainder of the flour and the second egg. You should end up with a mixture which is fairly stiff but not too stiff - it should just drop from the end of your mixing spoon. If the mixture is too stiff, you can always add a small drop of milk - but be careful; a little milk goes a long way.

You might also want to add a few drops of flavouring to the mix.  For adults, almond essence is nice, but for kids I would suggest lemon or vanilla.

Put the mixture into a non-stick baking tin and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 180 degrees C.  Good luck with your party!

I did a paintball cake for my grandson on his last birthday and there are many cute ones from difficult to easy online. Just google paintball cake to see them. One of them was really cute and it was just splats of color on a cake to look like paintball splats. Good luck with your search and I hope you find something you feel comfortable doing.

How artistic are you with spray on food coloring. You could make a white icing sheet cake and spray/draw the design of a paintball gun on it and put some whoppers/chocolate malted milk balls coming out of the barrel making it look like the gun is firing paint balls.or you could try something like this. Look in the comment box below.
