I made a zebra striped bow but had a hard time keeping the black stripes to lay nicely on the fondant. (You can see the bow on my link - http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1896731 ) I've got another order for the same cake and was wondering if there was a better way to keep the black stripes on the white fondant. Or, should I just make the bows and then paint/marker them on?

When I do a zebra stripe I take the actual stripes and lay them on my fondant and then with the rolling pin mush them into the fondant. I don't seem to have any problems when I do it this way. I hope this helps.

Also here is a link on this method that really helps.

The you-tube tutorial is awesome! I got the mat for Christmas this year but have not yet used it. Didn't even think about using it for this project. Last time I made a zebra print bow I did try to roll the black into the white but still had some trouble areas. I'm thinking the mat will take care of that. Can't wait to play with zebra print tomorrow! I had searched the web for this but didn't have any luck. Thank you sdrb84 and icer101 for your help! icon_biggrin.gif
