How to... Make Zebra Stripes

I decided to post this "tutorial" here after posting it at CakeCentral. Zebra is fun and can go with so many things! It's easy to make too.

I think zebra looks more finished if you use fondant. When making zebra stripes I think of the letters l, V and Y. Take black fondant, roll it out and freehand cut them with a cutter and make them like wavy bubble letters. Then you alternate them some up and some upside down. You can fill in gaps with small wavy I's. It's hard to explain but hopefully this picture I drew can help :)

For examples of my zebra cakes you can go HERE and HERE.
