Homemade  Pink Zebra Cake

Homemade Pink Zebra Cake

The ultimate girly-girl cake! The inside of the Pink Zebra Cake is chocolate cake with peanut butter cup filling (Whip together: 1 c. creamy peanut butter, 1 stick room temp. margarine, 2 c. powdered sugar, 2 T. milk). Then I lightly iced the outside of each tier with buttercream.

I prepared the bottom for stacked construction using 4 dowel rods. Cover each tier with pink fondant. I brushed the entire cake with pink pearl dust to make it glitter. Cut out flowers of each color, then lightly roll them with the rolling pin to smush the two colors together. Make a "sandwich" of flower, fondant adhesive, wire, flower and let dry overnight.

Meanwhile, cut zebra stripes out of black fondant and use fondant adhesive (watered down mushy fondant applied with a brush) to back of each stripe and press onto side of cake. Stack the little cake on top. Roll pink and black balls and alternate them for border. Dip each ball into a little bit of water first. Insert a flower spike into the center of the top tier and push fondant down inside of it.

By the way, the wires were 18 gauge florist wire just bent by hand. Lastly, push wires into spike. Voila!

Homemade Zebra Print Cake

by Laura

This was for a 18th birthday. I do not know how to make fondant so the stripes are made with candy melts. So was the initial. Melt in a decorator bag and cut a very small hole, the tips I had were too big and without the tip the bag could be reheated in the microwave if the chocolate started to harden. I made lots of stripes on wax paper. I printedzebra print images off the computer, place wax paper over the top and trace. Let cool, I did mine in the frig. Make extra in case of breakage. I like doing my letters this way, as a beginner redo's are easier than erasing icing from the cake. The layers are just 2 regular sheet cakes, the 2nd cut into square and turned diagonal. I had problems with keeping the pink out of the white, I was told to do the white last in the future. Not bad for a beginner. The birthday girl liked it.

Coolest Zebra Striped Birthday Cake 7

Homemade Zebra Striped Birthday Cake

Homemade Zebra Striped Birthday Cake

I am a wanna-be baker who loves to make cakes! This idea came from a request from a Mom for her daughter's 21st Birthday. She liked zebra stripes, who doesn't, and the number 21.

Instead of just writing on the cake, I cut out the numbers. I then lightly frosted the numbers and covered with homemade fondant. Next, I colored enough fondant for the stripes. Lastly, I put co-ordinating black/white ribbon around the bottom to give it a finished look.

Don't forget to cover your cake board for extra effect! I used bright pink tissue, some of the ribbon, and clear cello to cover. It must have been a hit at the party cause I got another order yesterday!!

How did you make the strips? Free hand?

Me too!
by: Laurie

I too have taught myself to make cakes starting with my oldest child's 1st bday cake. Now my youngest wants a zebra striped cake for her 10th. This challenges me as I am not sure how to do the!! Never used fondant either?

What size pans do you use and where do you get it at?

Cake pans not needed!

I made a similar cake for my brother's 30th bday.I just free hand traced the numbers & cut them out.Then make a sheet cake,lay paper on top of cooled cake& use knife to cut cake around paper to make shape.I use this technique a lot,saves a lot of $ from buying expensive cake pans that you might only use once plus you can make the cake whatever size you want!!Good luck!!

Coolest Zebra Print Cake 2

Zebra print cake

Zebra print cake

My cousin asked me to bake her a cake for her 25th birthday. I always say she's my "Barbie Doll", since loves bright pink, animal prints, star-shaped stuff, etc.

So, I decided to make her this zebra print cake. It is a simple vanilla cake, with layers of strawberry jam and chocolate.

I first covered the cake with white fondant. Then, I used a scalpel to cut the stripes of black fondant. I used a zebra print mug she loves as a pattern.

I added a pink fabric ribbon to give it a nicer finish and the star-shaped candles for a final touch. She loved it!

Im looking for somebody to make a zebra print cake for my birthday party which is May 9. If you have your own business maybe you can put your e-mail on here or your business number if you don't already have it on here and i can give you a call.

Oh my God i love this cake. I'm planning to use this cake idea for my 17th birthday. I'm not using the big pink bow but that is really pretty. I want polka dots on the side of the cake where the bow is because I love zebra print and polka dots. I was trying to choose between zebra or polka dots but with this cake idea I can have both. You must be really creative :) there is no way I could've done this lol. you did an awesome job.

Coolest Zebra Print Cake 20

Homemade Zebra Print Cake

Homemade Zebra Print Cake

I made this Zebra print cake from a 9" double layer round cake covered in marshmallow fondant. A cake order that I had for a little girl's birthday.

The zebra stripes are chocolate marshmallow fondant. It's easier for it to actually color it black without adding to much food coloring. The beads around is just fondant rolled in to little balls and stuck on with butter cream. The top is just circle cut-outs in different sizes.

The customer loved it which of course made me very happy.
