Chances are, you probably have at least one leopard-print patterned item in your wardrobe. Maybe that one leopard-print patterned thing is even in psychedelic colors, to really set it apart from the crowd. Bet you never considered, though, how great that colorful leopard-print pattern would look on a cake…

Jenn from Cookies, Cupcakes and Cardio had a pair of leopard-print flats tucked away in a shoe closet, but it took making this cake for her to finally appreciate their big cat-inspired pattern. “This isn’t the first time I’ve found new love through cake,” she says.

As for how to create this wonderful edible? Well, Jenn began her cake with vanilla buttercream, vanilla cake batter and six different food colorings. She used deep pink, sky blue, yellow, orange and regal purple Americolor gel pastes for the bright colors, and super black to outline the spots. So technically it’s missing green – and she should have used red rather than pink – to make this a truly rainbow-colored cake, but we still love it.
