I saw this online and had to give it a try!! It was a huge hit at the party. All the kids wanted a piece of the zebra cake. Even the ones that always ate chocolate. It was just white cake with food color. This is how we did it. :)
1, Split your batter (light color, we use white cake) in
half. Color one half black and leave the other white.
2. In a greased cake pan we add the batter. Starting
in the center at a large dollop of one of the colors.
We started with black in this one. We started with
white in the other one. No reason. It just looked
like we were running out of white in this one. lol.
The size of the dollop really doesn't matter but I would
start with at least 1/4 cup.
4. Trying to keep the batter in the center of the pan
add 1/4 cup of the white color to the center again.
Letting it spread out naturally.
5. Now add another 1/4 cup of black batter again.
6. Now add another 1/4 cup of white batter again.
Keep doing that until it has enough batter in the pan
to bake the cake. Letting it spread out evenly as you
add more and trying to keep it in the center and level.
Fill the pan about 1/2 way or 3/4 of the way full depending
on the batter recipe.
7. Here is what it looks like when it is full enough.
Ready to bake.
8. Here is the one where we started with white first.
Ready to bake.
As you can tell once it's baked you don't know which
one we started with.
I think it is just another great way to make a kids birthday that much more fun!!!
Let me know if you have any questions. I am happy to help.
