Best zebra birthday cakes

July 20, 2011  ·  Posted under food & recipes, zebra

Just felt like talkin’ CAKE today. : ) I searched to the end of the web and back to find some really lovely zebra cakes – here are my favorites!

These perfect cupcakes and matching zebra smash cake are by Katy of The Happy Cake (Oak Park, Illinois).

Zebra, marabou, pearls and a rhinestone bow… fabulous. Found on Cake Central.

This cake is so cool because the fondant gives it the illusion of being crooked, although it’s not! By Buttercream Designs (Fredericksburg, Virginia).

The award for best and brightest fondant goes to these hot, hot pink cakes by Cakes By Danielle (Fort Worth, Texas). The shoe on top is a fantastic touch too!

Love the monogram letter and the bow! Found on Cake Central.

I like how this cake rocks the polka dots on top and the zebra on the bottom. By The Blue Sheep Bake Shop (Green Brook, New Jersey).

Flowers, rhinestones, and a lil’ butterfly. Found on Cake Picture Gallery.

This one has to be my favorite of all. A zebra cake, with an actual zebra, and it’s so, so pretty! By Sweet Elizabeth (Detroit, Michigan). See more photos of this cake here.

    Zebra print just seems to "go" with pink (for any age, I noticed)! Such pretty finds!
