Homemade Animal Print Cake

Homemade Animal Print Cake

This animal print cake was made for a customer whose daughter was turning 21. She's a model and is apparently really into animal print.

First, I worked on the gum paste bow since it needs a few days to dry. I tinted some gum paste with a very small amount of Wilton brown icing color and rolled it out about 1/16 in thick. I then cut 20 strips, 1"x7". All but 2 were folded over into the bow shape (I actually only used 14, but it's best to have a few extras just in case!). The other 2 were laid out flat on a box with about 2 inches hanging off the edge.

For the cake, I baked 2 8" cakes for the top tier and 2 12" cakes for the bottom. Each was iced and covered in homemade white fondant. I then tinted some fondant in Wilton black to make the "base" flowers. I used a fondant cutter and had to press the black flowers out a little bit so they would stick out behind the top flowers. For the zebra print flowers, I cut out white fondant flowers and hand painted the stripes using black icing color. For the leopard print, I tinted some fondant with some Wilton brown color, again a very small amount.

I then cut out the flowers and used the brown color thinned down with clear vanilla extract to make the spots. Then I went around them with black color. I used the same technique to make the spots on the bow. I piped a black shell border using tip #18 and piped the black lettering with tip #4. When I delivered it, the mom was ecstatic and even ran up and gave me a big hug!

This was the first time I made marshmallow fondant. Everything was made except the zebra strips. I bought the Wilton sheets and cut out the strips and placed them on the bottom cake that was covered in white fondant.

The cake was made with lemon cake mix. I added lemon zest and sour cream to the batter which made the cake very moist. The blocks were made of rice crispy treats and covered in fondant.

This Animal Print Baby Shower Cake was such fun and I really enjoyed the finished product. Here's to you Jessica. I hope you enjoyed it. I cant wait to see what my next project will be.

Coolest Baby Zebra Cake 8

Homemade Baby Zebra Cake

Homemade Baby Zebra Cake

We decided to do a zebra themed party for my daughter's 2nd birthday. This Baby Zebra Cake is a double layer cake with the top layer being smaller than the bottom. I used white icing on the entire cake and added fondant stripes to the sides.

I prepared a topper using black icing and wax paper. I traced out my design on the wax paper in black then froze it and covered it with white icing. Then I froze it again. Turned that over on top of my cake and viola a zebra!

Zebra Cake
by: Tiffany

I too are in need of making a zebra cake and yours is the best that I have found. My question is, when u piped the black out line, did u fill in all the black and then freeze and just cover with white or did u put on cake then finish filling in the black?

Homemade Wild Wedding Zebra Print Cake

My son & daughter in law had the theme colors of hot pink, zebra and black. At first I was not sure what this Wild Wedding Zebra Print Cake would look like together, actually, it was beautiful together.

I had made cakes before; but, never with fondant. My son's father made the fondant and rolled it out and I decorated it.

I LOVE this cake!!! Hope to have a smaller version for my next birthday. My mom makes cakes and I showed her this pic and told her to add bling to the ribbon around the bottom.... don't listen to the "TOO TACKY" comment. Some people have no taste or manners.....You made an awesome cake!
