I need to know how long it will take piping gel to dry. I have Pirate theme cake to do and want to use piping gel to give the water look of depth. Is anyone familiar with using it in this fashion?? hat1.gif

I used piping gel in my fisherman cake for water. It never dryed. I don't think it ever does.?>?

That is what I thought it would do, but reading online people say to let it dry completely. I may just have to airbrush some pearl dust over it to give it a sheen.

piping gel doesn't dry, it just gets a little stiff. icon_lol.gif

I recently did a cake with piping gel on it and I was worried about if it would dry and I found that it just got stiff. I never worked with it before and I was just squeezing it on and letting it blend together on its own but that seemed to make it more thick and softer. Towards the end I figured out that if I used a paint brush to guide it around, it came out thinner and I could control it more. Just an idea! icon_biggrin.gif
Good Luck
