Peace, love and tie dye cake

I made this cake for a young lady's birthday. She requested something with a peace sign theme but left it up to me. I thought peace signs, tie dye, hearts etc. and then saw a wonderful cake here on Flickr made by sweetcakesbyrebecca. This cake ended up being totally inspired by her cake. I just loved the look of her groovy style lettering and flowers. I like this cake alot but still think hers is better! It was my first time marbling the fondant and when I first twisted the colors together and started rolling they didn't look blended enough so I squished it up a bit more and rolled and they ended up blending too much! Oh well, there was nothing I could do about it as I knew I couldn't keep balling it up and re-rolling and I didn't want to toss it and start over. Its a 6 inch marble cake with italian meringue buttercream and MMF. I also made coordinating cupcakes in the next picture.
