Is there an expiration on these once opened? I have not decorated a cake in 21 months (due to injury) and now I am wanting to make a cake for my DD's cheer banquet (not even sure I remember what I am doing..LOL), but I was wondering if my colors are still good??

If anyone can answer this I would appreciate it!!

Thanks,


Jennifer

I have never seen an expiry date on the Wilton gels before, but if it tastes/smells a little funky, I would buy new ones.

Are you saying you opened them 21 months ago and haven't used them since? icon_confused.gif Or that you haven't decorated in 21 months?

If they have been opened that long they may have begun to harden.Wilton colors are bad for that because if you get a hint of icing or shortening inside the bottle from a knife etc..the gels begin to harden after a long period of time.
