Hi, this is my very first post, I have a zebra cake coming up and plan to use fondant...does anyone have any useful pointers on cutting out the stripes or is it something i am just going to have to play with for a bit?

Welcome, I did one recently and just freehanded the stripes (see photo in my gallery). It was fun and easy to do. Next time I do it I think I will cut out the stripes, roll out the white fondant in one big piece and then place all the stripes and roll gently so it looks more like one piece...then, cover the cake.

good luck! icon_biggrin.gif

HI! For zebra stripes, i used a pizza cutter and just weaved a little in and out and created the stripes, then placed them one by one and built a "pattern" as i went. It's really easy. That was a fun one. It's in my photos if you want to take a look.

Good Luck!

I saw Buddy on Cake Boss lay cut out black pieces of fondant on top of a rolled out white piece of fondant, rolled it again to press them together, and then put it on the cake as one big piece. That would save tons of time and look more like fabric. I did it for my purses by cutting them out individually and placing them...which takes longer. You can see my purses in my pics.
