after you put the buttercream on and it crusts you can use a paint bruch and lightly "paint" on clear piping gel.

Hi mememalasia -
When I did one - I added a little corn syrup to the buttercream - stayed nice and shiny! HTH Gaye

Well, ketcup is not really completely opaque. I would make red piping gel and mix in just enough bc to make it almost opaque.
