Can anyone please tell me what they use to get water effects on their cakes. It looks like some sort of gel, but I am not sure.

Thank you! icon_smile.gif

Hi there, welcome to CC. I use piping gel. You can colour it blue to look like water. icon_smile.gif

I buy Wilton's pre-colored blue piping gel in the small tube. It's the perfect colour for water, and you don't have to do any of the work!

Wilton also makes a sparkle gel that looks real cool too.

Wilton also makes a sparkle gel (several different colors) that looks real cool too.
