What is the best way to get even horizontal ombre colours when doing a buttercream ombre cake?

mix up plenty of your seed color in one bowl and set it aside

 

get out a ton of bowls (and/or plates if need be) and put decreasing amounts of white in each one enough to make one or two rows of ruffles and then place an increasing amount of your seed color in each one--add a little more color to each one-- mix 'em up-- i'd want enough of each color to go all the way 'round the cake once or twice

 

or you could do it the other way around and place your seed color in the bowls first and add white to that--

 

a whole lotta mixing going on!

oh wait delete that one line in there-- don't add more color in there -- just use your seed color icing and white icing -

AAre you asking how to make sure the lines are even, with no crooked stripes, or bleeding of colors from one stripe to the next?
