The book I have says "General humid weather does not affect finished pieces; however, gelatin should not be placed in refrigerators or freezers."
Though it's difficult to see the seams, I suspect those are separate segments -- cut and applied very carefully and accurately -- rather than single, continuous zig-zag strips.   You could use some type of ribbon cutter so all the strips are exactly the same width, then cut even length sections with angled ends. A quilter's ruler would be helpful to cut the angles. Take care to make sure the fondant doesn't stretch when you apply it to the cake, and make sure the...
You can use a tapered spatula to make a texture like that. Just hold the tip at a slight angle while you turn the cake on the turntable.

I think this is a good first attempt. I've seen lots of zebra stripes that really didn't look like zebra stripes, so you definitely should not be discouraged. It's great you've come here to ask for comments! That's how we learn!I've done a couple of buttercream zebra stripe cakes.
