Hello, I have a hippie themed birthday to do for next week. I was thinking of tie-dye effect for the fondant. I've never done anything like that, so would it be more effective to put stripes of color on a white fondant log and twist, or should I color the fondant a pale version first then put color stripes and twist?? I saw a cake on pinkcakebox that had a pink color with orange twisted through it that looked really funky! Thanks for any tips!!
Here's the link to the cake colours I had in mind:

Make up the colors you want to use then cut them into chunks and pull them together. Becarefull to stop far enough ahead of time that when you roll it out the colors are still visable.

I agree, it is just the marble effect.
