Making a cake this weekend for a lady at works daughter. It's in the shape of a peace sign and she wants buttercream icing done in tie dye design. Anyone know of a good was to do this? Should I just put the different colors on in swirls and then just mix them with a toothpick? I really want this to look nice for her!
what i have done for my tie dye cakes is to first ice your cake like normal even getting it nice and smooth but it doesnt have to be perfect. then take an angled spatula and lightly spread colored icing where you want your tie dye to be. then take your scrapper and resmooth the cake. it will probably blend some of the colors but i think its more realistic. then take a tooth pick and make the lines that you would see on a shirt.
