Hi Necey,

I've colored regular piping gel, so if the recipe is like the real think, I would guess that you could do the same.

Can you share the recipe with me, or give me the link to the thread to I can get it there?

Thank you,

From the recipe:
To Color: Add coloring paste/gel or food coloring drops to get desired color.

Since you are talking about piping gel (sorry, don't want to hijack your post icon_smile.gif ) what exactly is piping gel? I've heard of mixing it with icing to make it easier to pipe letters and stuff like that. But you can use it as just regular icing? I assume you can eat it, so what does it taste like?

It's basically thickened corn syrup. It just tastes like corn syrup to me. Sweet.
You can mix it in icing, and it makes the icing a bit smoother. Over the top of icing, it makes it shiny (good for water, or jewels). It will stick fondant on a cake, or sugar onto a cookie. Drops on a sugar rose, looks like a dewdrop.
