I am making a 60's themed cake for my mom's birthday... I want one or two of it's layers to look tie-died. How is the best way to do this? I have heard of printed icing sheets but I am not sure I want to go through that trouble.. is there an easier way to get a tie died effect??

There was one on a recent episode of "Cake Boss" where Buddy took lots of different colors of fondant and ran them through the sheeter to get a solid sheet of different colors. You might be able to do something similar with a pasta machine. It was a very cute look when it was finished.

To do a camoflauge cake, (although I used rolled buttercream) I colored several different shades of green and brown then tore pieces off of each color and threw them together on a mat. I then rolled them together until it was a continuous sheet. If the seams between the pieces seemed like they were coming apart, I used my finger with a little shortening to smooth them together and rolled it again. It turned out great! I would post a picture, but can't figure out how to get them off of my phone!
