Zebra Cake

Frosted Zebra Cake

I have to admit that this cake was a bit of a bear to make and it was equally a bear to get a good picture of. It didn’t help that I took it into work and couldn’t get a picture of it before hand. I had to snap an awkward picture of it while my kids were finishing up their specialist time and then by the time I got around to snapping a picture of the insides it was mostly devoured and cut at an awkward angle. That and it ended up being a bit lopsided. Oh, the joys of baking.

Technically this cake is supposed to be a zebra cake. I don’t know how much it actually looks like “zebra stripes” versus just marbling of chocolate and white cakes. It ended up being 5 layers and I had to make a double batch of icing (the second batch at the last minute). It was pretty tedious and I’m not sure that I’m up to making it again. Enjoy if you give it a go.
