Tie Dye & Peace

They say in fashion, that trends find a way of circling back around every few decades. I believe it to be true....the other thing they say is....if you wore it the first time it was "in", you're too old to wear it the second time around!

I guess tie dye makes me think of the 70's when I was a young girl (VERY young) ;). And now it looks as though it is making it's way around to another generation.

Abbie wanted a tie dye/peace sign themed cake. I wasn't sure how I was going to translate tie dye in icing, so I did a lot of research on the WWW. So believe me when I say....tie dye is definitely popular again!

I decided to use a gel icing in multiple colors and streak through them to give it the tie dye effect.
I think it looks "groovy man"! Hee Hee. I also made a rainbow of peace signs in chocolate to surround the base of the cake.

Peace, love and cake!
