Whimsical Zebra Cake and Hugs

Here's a tiered cake that I did toward the end of last year. I love delivering my cakes. There is something absolutely touching when a surprised birthday girl (no matter her age) sees her cake for the first time surrounded by her large family. Humbly, I must say that it is all too familiar for me to get hugs from complete strangers. This night was no exception.

The restaurant was a bit dark but you can make out the wired chandelier beads. I centered the cake right under a spotlight. The two tiers are covered in fondant. The stripes and flowers were dusted in edible disco dust. A nice touch that sparkled.

CWCakes Decorator Tip:  Wanna know how to sink those wires into the cake without it tearing through the cake/fondant?  Easy, use coffee straws. Your wires are bigger?  Then use those bubble tea straws. Yep, that way you get past all those haters too that say that you can't have wire directly touching cake.

  1. I can understand your love of disco dust, I have a little bit of an addiction to it myself! Your cake turned out very nicely - keep up the great work!!
