I was asked today to make a birthday cake for a 13 year old that likes peace signs and tie dye. Delivery would be this Sunday. I immediately thought of this cake (link above) to represent the tie dye.
A couple of questions for the experts out there…
1) I want to use Rose’s all-occasion downy yellow cake. Would the batter be compromised by adding Wilton’s gel food coloring to get the rich colors?
2) What flavoring should be added to mousseline to compliment this type of cake?
For decorations, I was thinking of a brightly colored fondant with tie dyed accents. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated!
