Splatter Paint Cake with bright colors for an art party or inside out party - Val Event Gal

Have you ever tried splatter painting? It is a really fun way of painting that doesn’t require any actually painting skills. The end result always looks really cool! It is not for the neat freaks because there is no way to avoid a mess when you are splattering paint around. When I was a kid I had a splatter paint room for a while and I loved it. My parents always let my sister and I paint our rooms. Being the indecisive person that I am I definitely went through quite a few different color combinations. I had purple and turquoise, multi-color splatter paint, and black grey and silver during my teen angst years. The splatter paint was definitely the most fun to do. I haven’t painted any walls in years! I think once my daughter and I are in a house we can do some painting in her room maybe splatter paint or a mural if I’m feeling ambitious. For now I will just stick to cake painting. I thought the splatter paint look would look cool for a cake. It was definitely fun to make but also really messy. If you make a splatter paint cake just make sure to have a bunch of plastic wrap or tinfoil laid out to avoid the massive mess. I love making a good mess, cleaning it up is a different story. The finished product looks really great and you do not need to have decorating skills to make it. Just the ability to throw some candy melts or frosting on the cake! This is a great project to do with kids because they have a blast! Perfect for an art party or inside out party. I could see this for a teen party just change the colors to match any theme!

What you need to make it:

Cake with white frosting(you could even do a store bought cake)

candy melts in at least 4 colors of your choice I did orange, green, pink and blue


Melt candy melts according to the package. Add a small spoon of oil or crisco to thin them out a bit. Just make sure they are nicely melted and a bit drippy. Use food decorating paint brushes, a lollipop stick or small spoon to “paint”, one for each color.

Start with one color and drizzle the candy melts over the cake on top and down the sides. You can literally splash/splatter them around in different directions but it is messy this way. Work your way around the whole cake top and sides. Then repeat with each color, one at a time. Let them all dry and voila you are done! You can put it in the refrigerator to speed up the drying process.

I love how bright and colorful it looks. Also, how easy it is to make and the fun mess you can make in the process is a bonus in my opinion!
