Zebra Print Fun!

This cake was made for my cousin's 18th birthday. She requested animal print, and I thought this was fun, yet sophisticated. I made the cake from scratch, a moist chocolate cake with cream cheese filling. The outside was then covered in white fondant. I used premade black fontant, cut into strips to achieve the zebra print, then colored some fondant pink for the bow and circle. I formed the bow using 1 strip of pink. I made a freehand stencil for the monogram, which I then traced out on the black fondant, and rolled some white balls for the "Flintstone" pearl look around the bottom.
