Zebra Cake


I made this pretty zebra cake for my daughter's birthday. She wanted a zebra birthday cake and I had no idea where I would find a zebra cake topper.

I thought of making an icing zebra or a fondant zebra, but didn't have time to attempt something that was so foreign to me, so stuck with what I know. Paper products! Lol. I used my Cricut Expression Machine along with the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge to cut out the shape of the zebra. I cut one zebra out of white cardstock and used hot pink cardstock for the second zebra. I cut the stripes out of the white one and placed it on top of the pink zebra to create the two tone layered look.

I taped popsicle sticks to the bottom of each of the legs (in between the white and pink zebras) so the sticks wouldn`t show too much. Then I was able to insert the popsicle sticks with zebra onto the top of the cake! I decided to make the zebra even more girly by tying a little bow out of matching pink ribbon and used a Mini Glue Dot to place it atop the zebra.

It also took quite a while to make the yellow cake with buttercream frosting, but it was worth it!
