Making a half sheet cake it's going to be chocolate cake with strawberry filling in one half and a custard filling in the other half, i'm kind of stuck on the kind of icing to use. I was going to do chocolate buttercream but then how do I decorate?

Thanks in advance.

Do you ever do any fondant work cause zebra stripes are the big thing among girls right now... and neon colors. Of course you could do buttercream and then get those Duff sugar sheets (he has a zebra print) to put on it. So I would do white buttercream if your going buttercream. If you can do fondant go with a really wild neon pink, green, or blue with black zebra stripes.

Buttercream design:
On a rectangle cake a smooth coat of white buttercream, leave a blank spot in the middle an oval size about 6 inches, pipe black shell border and then the birthday girls name or her monogram inside the oval! the the rest of the cake would be cut zebra stripes sugar sheets with black shell border around the base.

Fondant design:
Hot pink or neon green layer of fondant over the entire rectangle cake, then do the same thing as above with regards to the oval, name, border and lay fondant zebra stripes around the rest of the cake outside the oval.


Hope that helps a bit!
