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??
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.
Thats exactly what I was going to say....from experience...it just gets tacky....not dry!
Thanks to all. I think my questions were answered.
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!
