I am not sure I understand your question..."she wants the cake tye dyed"? or the fondant..If it is the acutal cake..just take small portions of the batter..colour it and swirl it into each filled pan..the colour will bleed into each other giving you a tied dyed look...good luck

i'll see if I can post a pic of mine for you...oh well I can't seem to get it to work.

I colored each cup of batter different colors

yellow, royal blue, green, orange, purple, pink, aqua...

I poured one on top of the other until the pan have enough batter.......I have swirled it AFTER that step, but I find that leaving it unswirled makes for a prettier CUT slice of cake

I dyed the white batter using neon GEL colors by Betty Crocker (found at WalMart Supercenter in the cake mix aisle). I divided the white batter equally into the # of colors I was using.

I put in the first color, let it spread a bit, added the second color, and so on. I didn't swirl them for fear of creating "muddy" areas.

Here's a photo of the cut cake:
