Several weeks ago someone asked for help doing a tie-dyed cake. I explained my technique, but the OP wanted to see a picture. I did not have a digital photo at that time. Last week I did the technique on a cake and I took photos. So here is my technique again with a photo.
I use a non-crusting buttercream. I ice the cake in a thin layer of white buttercream. Then I pipe a fan shaped design in various colors on the cake with a # 6 tip, alternating colors as you go. I put the cake in the freezer for a few minutes until the icing is firm. Then I smooth down the design. I have to put the cake back in the freezer several times until I get the entire thing smooth. Then I start at the base of the cake and pull a shish kabob stick through the colored icing so the white shows through. The finished cake photo is in my gallery.
Wow my DD would love this-she just tie dyed a shirt today!! Thank you so much for sharing such a neat idea!!
I can't see the cake? Is it my computer or CC?
very clever! thank you for sharing!
can't see the pic....i get msg saying that it doesn't exist?!
I looked in your gallery...I haven't saw a cake like this... very cool.
Sorry gals, that is frustrating that the photo is gone. I spent an hour getting it downloaded...too big, too small...I felt like Goldilocks!!
I think you can still get the general idea if you look at the cake in my gallery.
