Hi there,
Does anyone have any suggestions for painting zebra stripes on a fondant cake. I used black fondant before and didn't really like the look. But using straight color doesn't seem to dry? Any help, TIA

They sell a zebra stencil. You could stencil the pattern with royal or butter cream frosting.

I painted them on with Americolor super black and it dried. I have painted things with wilton's black before and it can take a week to dry.

Wow, I checked out the stencil and it is pretty cool, thanks.

When I paint on fondant I mix a little of the wilton gel color with clear vanilla or clear alcohol (vodka or triple sec) it is my understanding that the acohol evaporates which helps it to dry. It always work great for me, usually dries within a few hours. It's how I painted the zebra stripes on my purse cake

I do the same and the alcohol does evaporate.
