I have been asked to come up with some ideas for a zebra cake for a quinceanera. The cake will be zebra stripes and then decorated with bright pink. The thing is, the lady wants the inside of the cake to look "different" so I did some research and I found this site. It has the recipe for a zebra cake....ok...my question is...can I accomplish this look with the regular wasc cake or would I have to make this recipe to get this look. Here is the site.
I think it would work with wasc. There's actually a tutorial on youtube with this.
That is a very cool technique. I have never seen anything like that. I wish I would have when I had to do my zebra print cake. That would have been the hit of the party with all the 16 year olds. (I had a request to do one just like you-pictures are in my photos). Thanks for sharing it. I will have to try it.
I think you could do it with almost any cake mix.
Thanks for the help...I plan on trying it out this weekend just to see how it turns out.
I do this all the time! That is how I do my "marble" cake actually. I am just a bit more impatient so I do alot more than 3 tbls at a time of batter. I just pour some white mix then some chocolate then some white then chocolate again... so my "stripes" are thicker than the ones here. I use the any recipe and it works Good luck! I love the look of this too!
I've made several "zebra" cakes and I use WASC. For one cake, I tinted part purple for a girl's b-day cake, cake came out really great! It's a great tenique to get a rainbow look, too. Be patient, it'll take up to a dozen layers per pan or more. I use a 1/8 measuring cup for each layer, goes a littler quicker than using a tablespoon.
I think it will work perfectly fine with any batter...in any color combination..it's a great idea!
Thanks everyone for your replies...I'm getting really excited about trying it out. I've made marble cakes as well but I just pour in the battles while taking turns with the flavors and then do a swirl in it. It looks thicker and a little more different than this. I hope mine layers come out nice and thin like in the picture.
