This may have been asked before, but I am new and not sure. I am doing a cake similar to the one below. I would like to get the coloring similar to the top tier, but not sure how to go about it without it turning into a weird colored blob. Any and all thoughts are greatly appreciated!!

You need to have all the different colors you need done first. Then just mix them together. You can roll them into logs and twist them or just start needing them together. Don't mix too much so that you get one hideous color.

I have all the colors ready, I was just afraid of overmixing them and getting that hideous color! LOL I will try the log thing and hope that it works! Thanks so much! icon_smile.gif

I find the best way to marble is to roll logs of each color then lay them on top of each other. Then, twist them into a rope and then roll up into a spiral. Roll it out into a rope, twist and roll up. Continue that process until you get it as marbled as you need. There is a good video showing this at website. HTH!

Thanks tracycakes! That video was very helpful! It's always easier to see it done first rather than trying to picture it in your head lol Thanks again!!! icon_biggrin.gif
