Coolest Zebra Print Cake

I made this homemade zebra print cake for a friend’s pre-teen daughter. It is a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing and marshmallow fondant. The base layer is two 10” round cakes (each pan required 1 cake mix) and the top is 2 9” round cakes (1 cake mix split between the two pans). I spread cream cheese icing between each layer and a thin coat under the fondant.

I covered the entire cake in white fondant, cut fondant tinted with black coloring for the stripes and fondant colored with lime green dye for the ribbon. This cake required 2 batches of fondant – about 1 and 1/2 for the white covering, and about 1/4 batch for the black stripes and the remaining 1/4 for the ribbon. I used left over icing, colored with more lime green dye, for the wording.
