Since I had some zebra editable paper left I made it into a record label. He loves the old records.

Another favorite of Eric's is pineapple, so the cake was pineapple.

many thanks to Diane Smith whose marshmellow fondant I used to make this cake as well as both Terra/s wedding cakes.

    Take out and cool completely.

  • 5frost cake then apply rolled fondant and decorate as you wish. Apply any editable paper you wish.

    Mine said "Zebra records presents Eric's birthday"

    The inter record was zebra print editable paper as was the word "Zebra".
  • 6Notes.

    I found that working with the fondant it revamps better and rolls nicer if you use butter on the board and the roller as well as your hands instead of the usually preferred powdered sugar. It is twice as easy my way.
