Happy 21st Sarah!

Here's my version of a zebra cake I saw online. I made it for my mom's friend's daughter, Sarah's (ha ha!) 21st birthday on Monday. It was a cake I've been dying to make and I had fun doing it! It took a little longer than I expected, but when it was done I was very pleased.

This is the first cake I have made completely from scratch, white cake with raspberry filling covered in buttercream icing. I found a recipe online for a 'simple' white cake that turned out to be not too sweet. I also used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening for the frosting, which turned out yummy. I was a little nervous about what they would think, but was told the cake was "great- not too sweet". That's all that matters, I guess! I think I will still sample out different recipes until I find the 'perfect' one.


  1. Totally cute! My favorite so far!

  2. This is an amazing looking cake! You are super talented! My favorite it the purse though. Can't help it.
