Zebra Print Cake

by Shasta Lee
(Louisiana)


This is a zebra print/polka dot cake I made for a friends birthday. It is a 2 tiered (8 and 6 inch) butter cake with vanilla filling and butter cream frosting. The handmade bow is fondant, trim work is butter cream and the zebra print/polka dots are hand painted with gel color onto a blank edible sugar sheet. It is much easier to paint onto the sugar sheets, then it is the cake, especially if you are not using fondant. I found a zebra pattern picture and followed the patterns and painted it onto the cake. I am not an artist by no means, but it is super easy to paint zebra print! The bow was made a few days in advance so it could dry, and then assembled on the cake. After painting the print on to the sugar sheet, leave it 24-48 hours to dry before using. It is best to thin the gel color a little, it is easier to paint with. Wait and frost the cake, only frost it right before you add the sugar sheets, if you frosting sits too long on the cake before the sugar sheets are added, then the sugar sheets will not "melt" away and it will be like chewing paper, not good for guests!!
