Does anyone have a pattern for doing zebra stripes on a cake? I'm going to be doing a sweet 16 cake with zebra stripes and I'm not sure where to begin. I would appreciate all the tips and advice you can give. Thanks a bunch

Zebra stripes are actually very random...If you look at the pictures of cakes on here you will see that there are almost none that are exactly the same.

I recently did my first zebra stripe cake. And someone explained it to me like this. "While the zebra stripes are random, they also have a kind of consistency in width of the stripe and the width of the spacing". Check out some of the photos in the gallery & you'll see what I mean. Good luck! icon_smile.gif
