Hi does anyone have any ideas for a cool paintball cake that would feed 35-40 ppl? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm having a mental cake block! LOL

Here's two ideas:
1. Carved cake the shape of a paintball helmet;
2. Basic cake shape covered in white fondant and splattered with different colors of paint (edible spray paint or loading a paint brush and "flinging" it against the fondant is cool too), camo ribbon around the base.

Very cool ideas. I was thinking the very same. What about a paintball course? Bunkers, paintball guns, helmets, splats the whole nine.

mine only needs to feed 20 so its a smaller cake... but you can get into the whole course or even the paintball gun on top of the cake

How about half a sheet cake with buttercream and graham cracker crumbs for dirt make some bunker and splatters on bunkers. Bunkers could look like plastic barrels, wwod pallets, old doors. U could make it camo with grass and trees with the bunkers.

As a mom of a D3 paintball player - I would make a sheet cake like a field with bunkers spaced out. (scroll down to look at the New Jersey layout)

You could do the PSP logo (the red and white) or if they kid has a professional team he follows - decorate one in the team jersey.

Also - you can put actual paintballs on the cake. They are 100% non toxic and edible (they taste horrible)
