I am visiting my mom and making her a cake. I didn't bring any piping gel, but want to pipe vines. I was thinking a few drops of corn syrup would thin the icing down to make the vines stay nice while piping, but wanted suggestions.
I usually just use the liquid for my buttercream to thin down icing. Water for royal icing.
Yes, I've used corn syrup before, both in cake buttercream and in cookie glace. It works fine.
I have used corn syrup in cooking icing. I don't see why it would not work just fine in the buttercream.
I only use corn syrupin BC....it makes writing with icing easier IMO and makes nicer points on leaves.
Thanks, gonna give it a try right now.
It worked out really well.
