to rehydrate my wilton icing gel colors? I decorate two cakes a year (so far) and by the time I get back to my gel colors, they've gone gummy!

Does anyone have a "cure" for this? thanks!

Add a few drop of Glycerine and mix.

You can add glycerin a drop at a time, and stir with a toothpick. If they aren't too dried up, it'll smooth them back out.

Good to know there is a solution to the dryig out problem. Is there a certain place to buy the glycerin.

I usually buy mine from Wilton at Micheal's or Hobby Lobby. That's all we have around here.

A lot of drug stores sell it, too

I get mine either from Walmart or the Drug store. Wayyy cheaper than Michael's.
