I made this Homemade Zulu Traditional Cake for a colleague’s brother – he wanted this cake to thank his ancestors for his wealth which is a Zulu culture – and obviously have a party in the process. The cakes are from a pound cake recipe of mine covered in fondant.
The black Zebra stripes are glued on with edible glue. The top tier has a brown/white fondant on it. The Zulu shield is made from fondant as well. I used a side plate to get the shape and painted the shield with edible colouring. The spear and sticks are also made with fondant and painted with edible colouring. I used animal cutters to make the animals and also make the impressions on the side of the top tier.
