Hot Pink Zebra Stripe Cake

My friend asked me (at the last minute) to make a cake for her daughter's 18th birthday this weekend.  She told me her daughter likes pink and purple and that she wanted strawberry filling.  Then she said I was on my own for the rest.  So with absolutely no idea of what 18 year olds these days like, and having never been hip, trendy or cool myself, this was all I could think of.

Hot pink buttercream with fondant zebra stripes and purple ribbon roses.  You can't really tell from the picture, but the top is sparkly, as I liberally dusted it with Hologram Disco Dust.  My husband says I have an unhealthy obsession with disco dust, but I'm ok with that.  Anyway, I would have done different flowers given some more time, but overall I'm ok with it.

  1. Love your vibrant colors. I have a topsy turvy bright pink and neon green cake to make and wondering how to achieve the colors. Appreciate any suggestions
