Zebra Cupcakes, Wild!

So what kind of cupcakes do you make for a 12 year old girl who is turning 13? Why, zebra and pink of course!

When my mom asked me to make cupcakes for a co-workers birthday, I was all for it. I asked what kind she wanted, and my mom said, "She just wants something pink." Ummm, ok? Pink. Pink. What does a 13 year old girl like that is pink? So I asked my mom what she liked. Her co-worker said, "Can she do something zebra? Oh, and I want the icing to be fluffy." Can I do something zebra? Of course I can!

So I mixed up a batch of white cake mix and a batch of chocolate. Let me just say that the chocolate went a lot further than the white.

Wanna make some?
Step 1: Fill on squeeze bottle with white mix and one with chocolate mix.
Step 2: Squeeze a thin layer of white mix into a cupcake liner.

Step 3: Add a layer of chocolate over the white. ( Hint: It doesn't have to completely cover the white.)

Step 4: Continue to layer the different batters. You should end up with 3 layers of white and 2 of chocolate.

After baking, They should look like zebras ( at least on the inside). I got lucky and got one to look like a zebra on the outside as well.

Use a 1M tip to get the pretty swirl icing, then add some pink and white sprinkles to give it some sparkle.
