How can I get the shapes for a zebra or tiger print cake? Do you just guess and freehand them or is there an actual cutout pattern for them? Please help icon_smile.gif
Also, how can I get silver fondant?

I free hand my zebra designs. Just use a pizza cutter to run up and down black fondant in various sizes of crooked stripes and some v-cuts.

As for silver fondant, some people airbrush, some people spray (like Duff's from Michaels) and some people paint. Most agree that starting with grey fondant helps best.
