Can you be more specific please? Marble effect on what? Fondant, Buttercream?

For fondant, it's a matter of how much veins you want. The basic way to do it is rolling out sausages of fondant and then putting it right next to each other. Once that is done, just roll it out.

I am so sorry about not specifying!

I want to get the marble effect on a cake.

Thanks again

Do you mean marbled cake batter? The way you do that is to start with two different colors or flavors. Then put one flavor in the cake pan and drop spoonfuls of the other flavor all over it. Swirl with a knife and then bake icon_biggrin.gif

Twist the "sausages" Rylan mentioned together first before rolling out for a marbled effect. You will have to experiment with how much to combine them according to the look you are trying to achieve. thumbs_up.gif

oops, just realized that maybe Texas_Rose answered your question (marbeling cake batter as opposed to fondant marbeling) icon_redface.gif

and if you mean fondant, then just knead two or more colors together, and stop kneading before its a solid color icon_smile.gif or looks swirled thru hehe
