I have seen piping gel used alot lately and have only used it on my dummy cakes to adhere the fondant. I would not expect it to have a good flavor let alone the slimey texture. Just wanted to get the opinions of those of you that have covered a cake in it.
I would like to know this too? Also, does piping gel expire? I took a Wilton class about a year ago and would like to take another. I'm wondering if I'll need to buy new stuff or if I can use mine from last year?
I was told that it does't expire. I acually has a sweet taste and when I do characters I will do it all in piping gel You can use it to transfer images.
I checked my Wilton piping gel, and there isn't an expiry date.
As for the taste, kinda sweet with a hint of chemical somethingerother. I wouldn't eat large amounts of it, but for writing or small design applications its not so bad
Did anyone see the cake challenge on Food network this week? Mary of CakeGirls made her cake glow in the dark with tonic water and piping gel; it was awesome! Piping gel with blue coloring makes great looking oceans. I wonder if adding a little flavoring would make the piping gel taste better.
