Is that just piping gel for the colors?

Yes. I just made my own colors. Start from the center and make 6 lines spaced out fairly even to the edge. And then in between each section draw another line...and go around again...do that process until there is no more white space. I just used a 1/4" wide paint brush.

sugarmama,

Thanks for that suggestion! That is a cool looking cake!

NJSugarmama: how did you get the colors to spread/blow out like that? Hairdryer?  Such a cool effect -- reminds me of that spin art shops on boardwalk!

I also have a tie-dye cake to make this November, but I'm planning on making the multi-colored fondant logs twisted into pinwheels, then rolling out for each tier's cover.

I'd love to see how yours comes out. The only thing different I wish I did was to not do a rainbow, but mix the darker colors in between the lighter ones to give it a more tie-dye effect.

You could also just paint using gel color, there's a free class on craftsy about painting on cakes.

I found this tutorial http://kellythecakegirl.wordpress.com/2011/03/20/tie-dye-fondant-tutorial/

I think maybe make tiny logs and arrange in the pattern you want with a white background and use a fondant smother to press the colors into the white so you don't get distortion like you would with a rolling pin.

Sound like a fun project icon_smile.gif
