Has anyone used piping gel as a cake board covering? I am making a cake of a spitfire plane , but I want to do it flying over the sea. Just wondered if its as effective on a board. HYCH

I would coat the board with icing and then cover it with piping gel.

Piping gel can dry out depending on the weather.
I think I agree w/suziessweatsntreats....cover the board w/a thin layer of fondant or b'cream 1st.

Also by changing the shading of the icing underneath, the piping gel will appear to show more depth and shadows.
