Last week was our homeschool Science and Art fair. One of the categories that my oldest daughter, Audrey (age 6), wanted to enter was baking. She made a Zebra cake and received a blue ribbon (top rating). I am sharing her recipe with you this week for my Recipe Of The Week post.
2 cake mixes – we used two white cakes mixes so that the color would show. But, if you want traditional “zebra” colors use one chocolate and one white. Another option would be strawberry and white.
Coloring of choice (we use Wilton’s gel coloring so that we are not adding much extra liquid to the cake mix)
Frosting of choice (or see recipe below)
decorations of choice.
1 t. Butter Vanilla flavoring (found at most bakeries or cake supply stores)
1/4 c. water
Coloring of choice
Mix all ingredients with electric mixer until smooth and well combined. Add extra water (1-2 t.) if needed to thin for better spreading, mixing well again after addition.
