I have a request for a 2 tier round cake this weekend. Both the mom and daughter share the same birthday. She wants a white covered fondant cake with a hot pink loopy bow on top. The mom wants her side decorated in zebra with her number & name. Then, the other side is Little Miss Sunshine for her 8 year old daughter.

How can I tie the two in so they'll kinda flow together on the sides? Should I go from zebra stripes to black polka dots and then accent with pink & yellow? ...or just treat as two different cakes and not worry about the seam on the sides?

Thanks in advance!

If you look at my pictures at my Super Mario Cake it is a 1/2 and 1/2 cake. One side was Mario and the other was Star Trek NG. I treated them as two different cakes it was a big hit!!

That looks nice...think I might just do that too. Treat both seperately except for the bow in common on top.

Hi I did one of these as well, but to seperate the two sides, I made a huge loopy bow on top and let the ribbon hang down the two sides, all the way to the bottom, it was a wonderful way to keep the decorations in tact but seperate thumbs_up.gif
