How to make a horizontal stripe cake



Well, here it is!  How sweet is this pretty little cake! :)

I've been wanting to do this design on a three tier cake where the top and bottom tier has this design and the middle tier is a smaller, perhaps 2" high cake, in the turquoise color.  OH, that would be soo cool!!  But, alas...I'm homeschooling! :) So, it's just a one tier! - but still very stunning none the less!!

If you'd like info on how to create this sweet little cake using my wax paper transfer technique, see this post HERE for more information!!

Blessings!

  3. You're homeschooling too? I'm homeschooling my kiddos this year as well. It has definitely taken a bite out of my cake time, but so worth it. I love your little striped cake, it's beautiful. God bless your school year!

  11. I'm really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one today.

    1. Why thank you! This is just a standard blogger page. No upgrades or bells and whistles. I've been toying with upgrading to a wordpress site...just too busy with life right now! :)

      Blessings!

  12. Will this technique work to transfer fondant onto a cake that isn't covered in fondant? I need to make a large stripe of fondant for a cake that is frosted in buttercream. Just curious if it will work the same.

    1. Yes! It would be perfect! You might need to wait to peel off the wax paper until after you put it in the fridge for a bit?! - or take it right from the fridge and put the wax paper/fondant stripes on so the fondant sticks to the buttercream - you'll have to play with it.
