A friend of mine would like a tiered tie dyed cake w/ peace signs, etc for a 70's themed party. The only cakes I can find online were either airbrushed or marbelized fondant. I don't have the equipment to airbrush, and my friend thinks the marbelized fondant doesn't really look tie dyed. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the tie dyed effect, particularly with buttercream instead of fondant? Thanks in advance!
someone just uploaded a few days ago a tie dyed cake in buttercream, it looked really good .. I will try to find the link!
I thought this cake looked really nice! If you search for Tie Die or Tie Dye cakes in the search gallery there are lots of ones to look at!
I did a "That's So Raven" cake and made a tye dye design with the Wilton spray colors.

Cakerator, that's the same one I was thinking of! I had it saved in my favorites cause I want to try it, but I couldn't find it fast enough!
I have done tie-dyed cakes kust like JamieAgain suggested and they look great. I just use something like a shish-kabob stick to make the lines. I ice in white first, then put the colors on, that way when you scrape through the colors, you see the white underneath. It is time consuming, but it looks very good.
This one is by "itsacake" here on CC. She said she hand painted it with gel colors. Thought it was really cute.
I'm interested in this too! I have a couple that wants a tie dye wedding cake. they want it done in BC
Thanks so much for all the tips. I'm very new to the site and realize now that I wasn't searching correctly... I just found a ton more pics!
In my pix I've done tye dye tee shirt cookies with instructions in the comments. Perhaps you could adapt that to a cake somehow.
I think if you also make the icing tie dyed, you should tie dye the inside of the cake too! Well, as long as they are using white cake I mean ... theres a picture of that on here as well, it would be a nice surprise when they go to cut the cake!
