I'm doing a safari cake this weekend and want the bottom tier to have a zebra print. What would be easier? Using fondant to make the zebra stripes or using a stencil and airbrushing?? If I do use fondant, does anyone have any tips or tricks?

 

Thanks in advance!!

AFondant hands down. Airbushing won't give you the smooth, dark black pattern you need. I just did one with zebra and I rolled a strip of fondant then cut varying curvy strips with my cutter. They're not hard at all!

Thin black fondant or gumpaste (extra thin).

Thanks - I agree! Watched a quick tutorial and it looks so simple. Going with the fondant.

 

Thanks for the responses!
