For my cake with the zebra striped insides I wanted to do something a little different on the sides. I was looking for something that would dress up the cake, with out doing a ton of decorating.
I went ahead and iced the top as I normally would.
Then I took my bowl of white icing, and tossed in some of the left over pink from class, along with a few tooth picks of red coloring, and lightly mixed it up. You could also do some bag striping here as well.
I bagged it in the 16in bag with a tip 1M. Next time I do this, I will use the regular 12in bag.
I piped a line from the board up along the side of the cake.
I added some stars along the top edge, again using the tip 1M.
The guys at work loved the cake, so I consider it a success. Of course I’m pretty sure since it was free cake they weren’t going to complain any about it.
And are you curious about what the inside looked like? I got a picture of that for you as well.
(Sorry for the bad cell picture here.)
I think it looks pretty neat myself!
