Pink Zebra Graduation/Birthday

This was a fun project - a cake celebrating both a Graduation and an 18th Birthday! I also had the pleasure of experimenting with flavors a bit as there was a new filling request - to somehow incorporate a strawberry cheesecake flavor! The finished cake was a vanilla buttermilk cake with a layer of fresh sugared strawberries, cheesecake filling, covered in vanilla buttercream with fondant zebra stripes. I then fashioned a graduate's cap using rice krispie treats and covered that with fondant and added fondant banners with messages congratulating the new graduate on her diploma and her birthday! There were also vanilla mini cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and sugar pearls in coordinating colors. :)
