The zebra is one of the world’s most popular symbols of romance, with couples around the world using it to mark a special moment or to celebrate a special event.
But some couples think it’s inappropriate to celebrate it with a cake.
Zebra cake lovers say they should celebrate with the real thing Zebra cakes have a history of taking over the world.
In 2011, the world became embroiled in a global controversy after a woman in China claimed her lover had created a zebra-shaped cake using leftover pastry from her wedding and had sold it on the internet.
But zebra lovers are fighting back.
Some argue that cakes celebrating a special occasion are not only tasteful but also fun.
“I think that’s an important part of a cake, to remember a special day,” says Joanne Smedley, who runs the zebra and unicorn cake blog.
“A cake is a big part of who we are and how we celebrate holidays, and it should be celebrating all things zebra.”
But a zealous few are not happy about cake-givers.
“It’s a very silly thing to do, it’s not a traditional way to celebrate,” says Kate Brown, a cake maker in the UK.
“Cakes are very good for you, but if you do it to celebrate something that’s not yours then that’s really a waste of time.”
