Recipe of Zebra cake


Preheat the oven to 180 °C (convection oven 160 °C) and grease the baking pan with Bake Release Spray.


Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe as directed on the packege. Bake the cake for 30-35 minutes. Let the cake cool down by using a cooling grid. Bake a second sponge cake using the same quantities.


Prepare 200 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the package.


Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Enchanted Cream® as indicated on the package. Flavour the Enchanted Cream with the flavouring paste.


Cut both cakes 2x with the cake cutter and fill with Enchanted Cream®. Start and finish stacking with a bottom of a biscuit and put a cake carton cut to size in the middle.


Spread a thin layer of buttercream all over the outside and let it set in the fridge for 30-45 minutes. After this, spread the cake again with a slightly thicker layer of butter cream and let this also set in the fridge.


Knead the FunCakes Sugar Paste White smoothly and roll it out into an oblong piece that fits around the cake. So line the side of the cake with this first. Then roll out a piece of the white fondant and line the top of the cake with it.


Knead the FunCakes Sugar Paste Multipack Blue colours and roll them out very thin. Make zebra stripes using the cutting wheel. Stick the stripes to the side of the cake with some edible glue.


Put the remaining Enchanted Cream® in a decorating bag with tip #1M and swirl small tufts on top of the cake. Finally, sprinkle some shark nonpareils on top.
