I will be making my daughter's 7th B-day cake and she wants zebra print on one of the layers, but I have no clue how to do them... Please help me
Are you going to be working with buttercream or fondant?
I just thinly rolled my fondant out and cut them in odd pointed shapes (triangular) and put them on as I cut them this way I could get an idea of what sizes I needed. I saw a video on it somewhere. I can't find it now though! I will post it if I find it again.
Here it is
Frost your cake with with Buttercream and roll out black fondant. use a pizza cutter and cut out stripes.. don't make them all the sam.. and have them come to a point or at an angle.. brush the back of each stripe with a small amount of water as you put it on the cake. (water is glue) just a small amount of water though or you will smudge black on your frosting.
You can cover your cake in fondant as well and cut the stripes with black fondant.. glue the same way.. It is a really fun cake to make! give it a try!!
Thank you to everybody, I will try to do.
I just made a zebra shoe (see my pics) and painted them on with a mixture of black gel food color and a little vodka to thin it down to an acrylic type consistancy. Works beautifully! - if you're working with fondant!!
