“The Zebra Cake” Two flavors of cake mixes, chocolate & vanilla. Why not add bright pink food color to the vanilla? Fun? Yes!! This is a “scoop of chocolate & scoop of vanilla” literally! Start with 1/2 C vanilla in the middle, allow to spread a bit, on top add a 1/2 C scoop of chocolate…repeat! Don’t mix batter just allow to spread until pan is 2/3 full. Bake, Cool & Frost! Genius!

    Love the balloon idea

    1. Hi Bill! It’s a very clever technique indeed. I’m an avid potter and we use this technique for hand-built art as well. Anything to add volume. A friend has a story about being sans balloons and using another similar household item to form her art around–I don’t suggest it for edibles. We still have a good laugh about that one 🙂 Thanks so much & Cheers! Lana
