Cake Hacks: Spray Painted Cake

Cake Hacks: Spray Painted CakeCake Hacks: Spray Painted CakeI don’t mess around when it comes to cake hacks. I’m all about ease. After all, isn’t that the whole point to this cake hack business anyway? And today’s cake hack might be the easiest one to date. This spray painted cake will prove that spray paint isn’t just for your DIY projects!

If you’ve never messed around with the color mist food color spray before, you’re missing out. It’s an easy way to add a little color to your desserts without dealing with coloring an entire bowl of frosting. You use it just as you would spray paint…point, press, spray!

It can take a minute to get used to the pressure on the nozzle, but once you do, you’ll be good to go and before you know it, you’ll be spraying every dessert in sight.

And just as an FYI, it does tend to get a little messy. (You’ve been warned!)

Now let’s get spraying!

Cake Hacks: Spray Painted CakeHere’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • Store Bought White Frosted Cake (Any Flavor)
  • Paper Shape Cut-Outs (Any Shape)
  • Color Mist Food Color Spray (Any Color)

As with all of my cake hacks, I always start off with a plain frosted store bought cake. You can order them from your local grocery store at the bakery counter. I may or may not have even ordered one the same day (or 20 minutes before) I needed it too, so trust me, it’s possible. They might look at you a little funny when you have to repeat the phase, “No decorations at all”, but you’ll get used to that part.

Cake Hacks: Spray Painted CakeFor this hack, you’re going to be using paper shape cut-outs as a stencil. I used palm leaves for my cake, but you can use any shapes your heart desires. You can even combine different ones too!

Print and cut out your shapes and place them on your cake to figure out the placement you want to go with.

Cake Hacks: Spray Painted CakeBegin spraying the color spray around one paper stencil at a time. Hold the stencil down with your hand to avoid it moving from the air/pressure of the edible spray.

To continue the pattern down onto the sides of the cake, fold your paper stencil down over the edge of the cake gently, and while holding in place, continue to spray.

Cake Hacks: Spray Painted CakeRemove your paper stencils from the cake and allow the edible spray to dry completely.

Cake Hacks: Spray Painted CakeServe and enjoy!

The spray painted cake colors and patterns are endless. Pink hearts or lips for Valentine’s Day, pine trees for Christmas, or even bats for Halloween! Give this easy spray painted cake hack a try, tag some cakes,  and don’t waste another minute in the kitchen coloring any more frosting 😉
