I would like to make water out of piping gel for the cake I'm working on. I have no idea how to do it. Do I just add color to the piping gel or do I add icing, gel and color? The cake will be traveling for several hours and it will be a couple of days before it's cut. Will the piping gel melt? I really like the look but I don't want it to be a mess before its served. TIA

Hi. You just add a small amount of your blue coloring to your piping gel and mix. The piping gel will not melt any easier than bc will as long as it kept in reasonable temps. HTH K'ly

Depending on the type of effect you're looking for, blue piping gel over blue icing makes really cool looking water. They don't need to be the same shade of blue, which makes it even cooler.

Piping gel doesn't taste that great, so a thin film over buttercream is preferable to a big blob of gel. Experiment with icing and gel on a practice board or cake pan to see what kinds of effects you can make. icon_smile.gif
