Completed my first tye dye cake this weekend and was very happy with it. I was scared I wouldn't like the effect the first time and have to scrap all the fondant but it worked!

I just rolled out several "snakes" of each color, pinched some over onto the next color, wound all into a spiral and rolled out. I was especially happy with the bottom tier.

I knew it could be achieved!!! I knew it!!!

That cake is gorgeous!! I attempted to do a cake like that a few months ago, and everytime I rolled it out.. at first it would seperate into its individual colors...then about the third time rolling it out, it turned brown on me!! icon_cry.gif

Oh I knew it would be gorgeous. YEAH !!! I am going to have to attempt it again using your method to combine the fondant.
