Hi! I am fairly new to this site, and I think it is amazing!
I have been asked to do a cake for my DH's co-worker's wife's 50th birthday. He would like me to decorate it like Mount Rundle in Banff, Alberta. He has supplied me with a photo (see attached), and I think it will be easy enough. I would like to make the lake at the foot of the mountain look realistic by making it appear shiny.
Any suggestions? Any other suggestions about ths type of cake is welcomed too! Thanks!

piping gel tinted the different shades of blue... you will find that alot if you look at water features on cakes on here, and elsewhere!

Another cool thing to try is poured sugar. Just make a mold out of foil and grease it. Then boil some water, sugar and maybe a little bit of corn syrup to prevent crystalization. Tint it blue and pour it into the mold, its something different.

I use the piping great. I've included two pics where I used it.

I really like it,

Thanks for the tips! I will experiment with both piping gel and poured sugar to see how they turn out.

ssuzyqqq27, what a coincidence, I just did a golf cake very similar to the one you posted! I attached a pic! I love the way your pool cake looks, the water is so realistic.
