I just did a tie die fondnat covering on a cake Friday. I made my purple and had white. I rolled the white into a shape much like my forearm. I rolled the purple into the sme shape but smaller. I then twisted that like a roap and kneaded it slightly until it became marbeled or tie died looking. I did the same thing for the black except i kneaded it more so that the white was actually colored grey.

here is the link to my cake i just did using the tie dye look.

I made a marbled (some call it tie-dye) cake this weekend too. its in my photos. Be careful not to over-knead or over-roll because if you do, it blends the colors as opposed to making it 'streaky'. I layered colored on top of each other and then rolled. Darker colors, especially black, can swallow up your other colors! That's why the cake I posted isn't a black marble - I started over. I am just experimenting so that's what I have so far! Good luck!
