12. Put two tablespoons of white dough in the center of the mold. The adze is slightly blurred along the bottom, on top of the white one lay out two tablespoons of dough with cocoa. Again we take the white dough, two spoons, and put it in the middle of the form, on top of the dark dough. So we continue to alternate until both doughs run out. The point is that each subsequent portion of the dough pushes the previous portion of the dough. Visually, it seems that dark and light stripes alternate, like the color of a zebra. The main thing is that the dough should always be laid out strictly in the center of the form, and try not to make blots. In the end, here is such a beauty turned out.
