How do I do that?! It looks so cool, and my cousin's 16th birthday is coming up, and she loves all of that stuff. I was thinking I could do something like so many of you have done, the zebra stripes and polka dots, but I'm at a loss! Do you free hand the stripes? Or is there a template that I'm missing?
Thanks for the help!! You guys are always so helpful!
This is a two part tutorial:
I have done two cakes with zebra stripes. Both are in my photos. I just use a fondant cutter to cut out random stripes of various widths and lengths. I try to make them come to a bit of a point on the ends. Then I just place them on the cake (I always put them directly on buttercream). Hope this helps!
You can paint the stripes onto fondant with black icing color. It's actually not that hard, you don't need a template but it's not a bad idea to have a picture of zebra stripes for a reference.
I free handed mine. I just cut out strips in different thicknesses and not straight and then placed them on the cake.
You can use a stencil to either apply with royal icing or cut out. Here is the link: http://www.designerstencils.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=DS&Product_Code=C452&Category_Code=
Thanks for all of your help!! I knew I could ask! I will be making the cake for next weekend! I pray that it turns out like it is in my head!
I also free hand mine, there in my cake pics, one is black and white the other is hot pink stripes,
Wow. Will those stencils work with airbrush? That would be so easy to do zebra stripes with that stencil if you could just airbrush it.
