Pink Zebra Cake

Animals galore

The other day my friend Lynda asked me if I would make a birthday cake for her daughter who was turning 3. She was going with an animal theme and had come across the idea for a zebra-striped cake – the first time I’d heard of such a thing. Needless to say I was excited to experiment and after some research on the method, I came up with a variation that I thought worked.

Overall, I was quite pleased with the way it turned out – and of course you can’t really go wrong with chocolate icing on top! (Excuse the messy cutting here, by the way. We had 10 three-year olds running around like maniacs at the time.)

Chocolate cake

Foodie Quote:

“He showed the words ‘chocolate cake’ to a group of Americans and recorded their word associations.
‘Guilt’ was the top response.

If that strikes you as unexceptional, consider the response of French eaters to the same prompt: ‘celebration.’ “

– Michael Pollan, from In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto


Hmmm, I wonder which attitude towards food is healthier??
