Hi Everyone,
I have been asked to make a sheet cake to look like the plate or napkin below. I'm lost on how to achieve this. Any help well be greatly appreciated.

What decorating method are you wanting to use?
If you have an airbrush, you can just spray the colored lines in a circular shape like the swirls of the tye-dye have, and then drag a spatula through the colors to give it that bleeding look.

Since it will be buttercream and no airbrush available, try hand painting your buttercream then dragging it or smudging it to blend it together....maybe do a practice.

This decorator gave a brief explanation on how she did this. You could pm her for more details if needed.

A frozen buttercream transfer or a colorflow piece would make a nice way to do the words, peace signs and white flowers.
Just set the dry pieces into the swirls.
