Need ideas for this complicated design

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a client that wants a purple zebra, quarter sheet cake with a 6-inch round on top that is pink leapord. She wants Happy Birthday on it also.
I wasn't planning on doing it with fondant. (She's not paying for fondant).
I have racked my brain but just can't figure out how to do this. Is this even possible?

Do you have an airbrush machine? that may help but if you google buttercream zebra print cakes you can get an idea as to what others have done. here's a couple I found... remember these are just for ideas you can do it any way you like icon_biggrin.gif

Would the cost cover a little fondant, here's a cake on CC that use both buttercream and fondant

You could do it basically the same as the camo tutoial on the home page right now.

Of course it's possible...and quite easy. icon_smile.gif

 

Simply do your zebra stripes in black fondant on purple BC (or whatever the color scheme is) and hand paint the leopard print on crusted BC for the 6" round.  I am not a fan of zebra stripes done in BC because they do not look as clean and sharp as zebra stripes cut out of fondant, and you shouldn't feel the need to charge her extra for using a plum-size ball of black fondant (if that) on the quarter-sheet for the zebra print.  I do zebra print quarter-sheets with mind-numbing frequency.
