I was asked to do a baby shower cake this weekend for my cousin. She wants a 2 tier zebra print theme, but wants the flavor of the cakes to be strawberry and dark chocolate on each tier. (So when you cut the cake you get a pink and dark brown color piece.) I have no idea of what kind of filling to use on this. I've never mixed cake flavors in one tier. Help me please!!

You could fill it with a chocolate ganache or a chocolate bc or strawberry bc, even just a vanilla bc... these are all simple and will compliment your flavours.

Thereis a Strawberries n' Cream Mousse recipe on here that is very yummy. I have used it and gotten awe's over it.

Looked at your photos and you are obviously a skilled decorator/baker. I'd just take Sheena's advice and keep it simple with matching strawberry and chocolate buttercream in the respective layers. That will allow the best appearance of brown and pink in each tier.
