Zebra Cake - Cake Slice Bakers July 2011





This months cake is still from Cake Keeper Cakes by Lauren Chattman published by The Taunton Press 2009. It’s something I’ve been meaning to try for ages, so was pleased to give it a whirl.



Short and sweet from me this month! It’s vanilla cake and chocolate cake mixtures dropped into the pan in spoonfulls, to give a bulls eye effect, which looks stripey when the cake is cut into. Mine wasn’t perfect by any means, but there was a definite stripe in it, wavy like a zebra’s coat. It was fun to give it a whirl, and now that I’ve at long last tried the technique, I must get round to giving a stripey cheesecake recipe I have been meaning to try a go too.



Do have a look at the Cake Slice Bakers blogroll, some of the zebra cakes are really awesome!

Lovely cake and congrats on baking this. It's great to see that every one's stripes come out differently even though we are baking from the same recipe with the same instructions.

Kelly-Jane, that looks great!
Are you talking about Carine Goren's cheesecake? I was looking at it today!

Yes, I, too, love the way the stripes have come out slightly differently for everyone. I love the slightly random waviness. Looking forward to hearing about your cheesecake!

Emily's comment made me laugh. ha! :-)

Stripes don't have to be perfect, because zebras aren't either. I think yours turned out great.

Can't wait to see your striped cheesecake. I bet that'll be awesome. Do it!!!

Speaking from the stripe impaired, I think your cake looks great!

Wow! Kelly-Jane I think your cake looks really beautiful:) I haven't seen everyone else's versions of this cake (yet), but I imagine that there is something lovely about all the variations:) I have to say, it looks like the way your cake turned out that it was supposed to look exactly that way:D
