Can the cakes be decorated with cookies that have been decorated with the tye dye? You could get the t-shirt cutter and really go to town! Bake them on sticks and push them into the cake. I've also done a cake where the peace sign was drawn on the round cake top, then filled in with different colors in a rainbow effect. It wasn't tye dye, but it looked nice. Good luck with whatever you come up with! Be sure to post pictures!

Can you streak some gel colors into white fondant and then twist and pull the fondant until you get that tye dye look?

Or take chunks of colored fondant and do the same - twist and pull until it looks right?

Oh, man! No pictures? It sounds like it was a great cake and I'm bummed that we don't get to see it. I'm glad you were able to use the cookie idea (I'm partial to cookies!). And the swirled colors in the fondant sounds cool!
