This year for Sam's 10th birthday cake she wanted a pink & black zebra cake. I'm not going to lie. I didn't think I could pull it off. In steps Pinterest.
1. Make 2 cakes mixes. Either make 2 white ones & color them or do 2 different colors. I did 1 Devil's Food & 1 Strawberry.
2. Plop a cupful of one batter into your prepared pan.
3. Plop a cupful of the second batter onto the first batter.
4. Repeat until pan is filled.
5. Bake as directed.
I had seen the cake tattoos (sugar sheets) and figured I might be able to find one. I found some that was pink & black zebra BUT it was pre-cut into 2 strips that were to go around the edges of a 9 inch round. Sam didn't like the package we saw with the pink & black zebra. Thus, we opted for a square black & white one.
Ta day! Pink & black zebra striped cake! Yea, I'm awesome like that.
We had family come over for pizza, cake & ice cream tonight. Even though Caleb has pink eye we still had a good turn out.
Sister was so excited to find out she got a kareokee machine for her birthday!
I can't believe my baby girl is turning TEN! It really does feel like she was just born yesterday.
