Purple Zebra Cake

This cake was made to celebrate a graduation.  Can you guess the graduation girl’s favorite color?  Yup, it’s purple.  This cake was actually inspired by a birthday cake I made a few years ago.  I hate to make the same cake twice, every cake needs to be special and new so I made a few changes and I love the result!

The stars really bring the cake to life.  The bow is handcrafted from gum paste that I tinted purple.  It was then airbrushed with pearl shimmer color.  Here is a closer look.

The cake was vanilla cake filled with chocolate fudge.  Once it was filled and crumb coated, I covered it in white fondant.  I then airbrushed it a glittery purple color.  Finally, I added black fondant zebra stripes.  A message to the graduation girl was added to the silver cake board.
