How to make leopard print inside a cake/cupcake

List of Materials

  • Cake batter in 3 colors
  • Icing/pastry bags wit tips


Step 1) 3 different colors of cake batter. You can either use yellow & chocolate cake & color them accordingly OR you can use gel color and color the cake batter accordingly.


Step 2) Divide your cake batter into 3 and place the Black cake mix in one pastry bag, brown in the 2nd pastry bag and keep the rest in the mixing bowl


Step 3) On the bottom of your EMPTY cake pan or cupcake liner, draw/pipe the spots.


Step 4) Top the 1st set of spots with the lightest cake batter and just repeat the process, alternating between making the spots & topping them off with batter.

End result is a leopard print pattern on the bottom, middle & top of your cake/cupcakes. It literally takes a few mins. You don’t have to be neat either. Just have fun with it. ****If you are making a cake, you can pipe/draw the spots small b/c they will enlarge as the cake bakes.

Hi, I was wondering if by any chance you can send me the step by step pictures and instructions of the leopard print inside the cake. For some reason I can't see the pictures of the step by step instructions. Thanks.

Hey Everyone! I just uploaded a picture tutorial under my album with some step-by-step instructions. Here is the link to the picture.

Admin, can you please tell me why my pictures are not visible under this tutorial?

Greetings All, the Admin for the Pics deleted my picture b/c she said that I already posted a tutorial and therefore it's not necessary to post in the gallery. I will resubmit this tutorial and hopefully, the admin of the tutorials will delete this one and post the newer one. I will send you guys a message with the pics and step by step instructions.

MissMona Says... 2012-07-08 10:50:58

I don't understand, as popular as this is, why won't admin assist in straightening this out? It's been five days of people begging for photos....I would like to see this done also. Sad this has to happen to something posted on the home page and so popular. Sorry Angelfire. :(

gfbaker Says... 2012-07-08 11:42:50

Even without the pictures, these instructions are simple enough to follow. This would be fun and super easy cake to make!

becky444 Says... 2012-07-08 14:27:21

I know you're probably sick of emailing this pictures ... but if you could send them to me too I'd appreciate it! Thanks for posting the tutorial. :-)

srski Says... 2012-07-09 15:22:33

I would love the photos as well - hopefully before Wednesday as I have a cake due. If not, I totally understand. Thanks for sharing!

CasperCakeCreations Says... 2012-07-10 05:00:59

I would so appreciate a copy of your photo tutorial, as well. It would be helpful if the Admin would post, since the process is different from the one in the tutorials.

brittanyGA Says... 2012-07-10 11:13:25

I would greatly appreciate it if you could send me a copy of the tutorial as well. Thanks!!

Angelfire3 Says... 2012-07-10 13:05:55

On No, I ENJOY sending out emails to all of you. All I do is reopen my previous sent message and FWD to everyone. It's literally as quick as a copy & paste of your email address and I hit send. I do have a blogger and I will upload the pictures and directions on there and post a link here. But, send your email address and I will send all of you an email.

Angelfire3 Says... 2012-07-10 13:27:32

Alright everyone here is the link to the tutorial I posted on my blog~
