I am having to make a brain cake and I was hoping to brush the fondant detail part with some diluted piping gel to get that really gross, slimey effect, but just realized that the gel will probably dissolve my fondant!
What to do??? Any other ideas or solutions that might work?
Cake is being picked up tomorrow before church! I need help please!
Thanks in advance,
I know people use piping gel to make designs on fondant so I don't think it'll dissolve your fondant. You might try a little test piece to see how the fondant reacts after a couple hours.
Other option - can you use thinned down royal icing in place of the piping gel?
I wouldn't dilute the piping gel...but I made stained glass on one of my cakes with piping gel and it was fine...no worries. People also use it for water and other stuff like that.
If you brush it with water, it'll have a wet/shiny/kinda slimy look- and that look will stay for several hours, in my experience.
you need the recipe for edible varnish!!! It's in here somewhere.... goes looking....
here ya go! You must post your cake when done! Sounds very cool! Be sure to darken the crevices a little for a nice depth.
