Well I decided not to freeze the gel as a transfer because I read that piping gel did not freeze well. I just did a regular piping gel transfer to get the pattern of the leading. Then I mixed white chocolate w/ piping gel and added black color for an opaque look for the leading and piped it over the transfer lines. I really like the way this turned out. Not sure about the fondant border but I thought it needed something and truthfully I was out of icing bags icon_redface.gif

I was hoping to see this cake! It looks fantastic!
Great design and colors, and done really well!

I am glad to see it and hear your advice before I do my stained glass cake tomorrow/Friday.

Thanks! Great job!

Thanks! All in all it's a pretty easy technique. It took a little while because I painted my piping gel on instead of using a bag or bottle (except for the leading).

Wow! Very nice job. I love how the stained glass looks. I wanted to do something like this not too long ago, but I couldn't figure out how to get it to work. Thanks for describing your technique.

Well for some reason the attachment isn't working. You can see the cake in my pictures.
