Hello, all! I need to make a cake covered in fondant with a tie dye look. Can you give me any tips or suggestions?
The cake is for a 60's theme. I'd love to hear any other suggestions you may have for decorations as well. Thanks!!!
Simply take pieces of colored fondant and slightly twist together and then roll out. Good luck!
Tint red/pink, blue, green, and yellow, bunches of fondant separately then twist and swirl and knead them together, there's really no wrong way since tie-dye, in nature is pretty random and free, should be really cool or should I say "groovy"
Search this site, I've seen it somewhere.
Try not to twist the fondant too much. I made a sample of 3 colors, red, blue and yellow. Twisted them slightly and it looked pretty cool. Then when I made the actual covering for the cake, I must have twisted/molded too much. The blue tends to take over very quickly. (see photo)
I've done tie dye with an airbrush.... zig zag the colors in a grading circles on the cake or even painted the colors on the same way it turns out really neat leaving the center white with some white showing between the different colors
there are some awesome airbrushed tye died cakes on here!!
Here is one with the marbled fondant
