I painted the stripes with a paint brush right out of black gel bottle. I printed out a couple pics of zebras from the computer and then tried to paint those on the cake. hth

Another method shown by Julie bashore is to take black and weight fondant. Split in half, twist together and roll it out. You will get a very blended random file. Unrelated fact, I went through a safari park and a zebra came up and licked my elbow!!!! It was wild to see one up so close, they are beautiful creatures!

I also found the Elaine Thomas videos to be very helpful. I just substituted her solid lines with wobbly W's. This worked well because I used the off-cuts as well.

Can you only paint on fondant or can you paint on crusted buttercream too?

What did you guys that painted on the zebra strips use? Could I just use watered down food coloring?

I really don't like the stripes that look like worms or leeches on cakes. I really like the tutorial mentioned earlier. I think the thing to keep in mind is that every stripe needs to have at least one end that is connected to the base of the cake or under another tier. (If that makes sense.) In other words, it shouldn't look like a worm crawled up the cake. I like wide stripes and Vs or Ws. The look nice. Just google zebra stripes and look at real ones.
