Hello jorcasma, the technique is the same for any colour combination or the number of dots. For the side of the cake, decide how many dots you want from the top to the bottom of the cake. I used tip 12, and the amount of pressure you use will determine the side of the dot. It's best to dot the entire row (top to bottom) first, then with a small angled spatula, small rounded knife (that is what I used on this one) you smear from the centre of the dot to the right, you do this for each dot all the way down. Dab the next row about a finger space away, and repeat the process all the way around.
