Hi all--

First of all, I'm new to this as of a few minutes ago! Always a reader, now a user! WOOHOO!

Anyway, I've been asked to make my MIL's 50th birthday cake. She is a hippie at heart, and loves tie dye and peace signs, so I thought about making a tie dyed cake (on the outside-- not the inside). Should I use color spray? I don't want to cover the cake in fondant, she doesn't like that. Anyone ever make a tie dye cake who could share a picture with me?

Any and all suggestions welcome, please!

I have never done it . . but I am thinking . . . .

If you have a bowl of white buttercream and you throw a few colors into it .. as you mix it it will make streaks and look kinda cool . . then if you spoon it out on top of the cake and spin your cake wheel as you use your spatula to level off the top frosting . it should . . in theory . . . . start to be pulled in circular motions . . . . and look kinda cool ??

Dunno . .. just thinking it out in my head lol

Iv only made the sponge as tye dye but as kuyaromeo said doing this motion with the buttercream and only mixing it slightly u will get the tye dye effect from this or u could try putting four differnt colour icing into a piping bag and u will get this effect as u pipe it onto the cake this works well aswell.
