Don’t get confused here, because this isn’t a blog post about Zebra shaped cakes, it is about a dessert cake that people just happen to call “Zebra cakes” (Or Icebox cakes if you are elsewhere in the world) apparently the first ever Zebra cakes where just a slight deviation from a trifle! But I only found out about these the other day when someone posted a picture of one they had made on their Pinterest wall, it looked so amazing it inspired me to do this post! So come with me and grab a dessert spoon because you are going to want to try some of these…

1 – It started with a dribble!
And it all started with this one that someone had pinned on their wall and so it should end with the same one. You can just imagine that when I saw this I just had to discover more about it, what it was, how to make them and more importantly what they tasted like. I have done the hard work in finding the recipe for this in the link, so now all I have to do is to find out how they taste! And maybe make me one as well.
