Does anyone know how to create a tie dye swirl effect in buttercream on top of a cake? I assume you use spray colors, but how do you do it to make it a nice, neat swirl?

The dream of tie dye is it isn't neat icon_smile.gif
Yes, use spray cans or an airbrush for best results.
Mask off parts of the cake you do not want color on.

So just overlap the colors a bit then? Mask off the main areas except for a little overlapping?
