I was wondering if anyone had ever done a fondant overlay that looked anything like this picture on these boots. This is much more detailed than I would like to do it but this is the idea. also what is the best way to do flat zebra stripes? I have done them with fondant but I just layered the black over the white and it ends up a little too thick I am not sure if I got the picture of the boots attached or not. I am new to this

No picture so can't help u with the boot. Have you tried the marbeling technique with fondant? You could try that with black and white to make a flat zebra pattern instead of laying strips of black on white.

For the boot I would find a mold that looks similar to that pattern and create the design that way. Unless you want to create your own stencil and paint it on the boot.

Thanks! I am not actually making a boot. I am just wanting to do an overlay on a cake that looks kind of like it

If you look at my photos one of my cakes has a royal blue on white overlay using molded pieces to create a similar idea to what you want to for. Good luck!

That is beautiful! Thank you! I wish I had a mold but I don't and I am doing the cake today
