I am making a cake for Sunday that has a stream/river running through it. I have seen several episodes of Cake Boss and AOC where they use some sort of sugary substance to create the water effect. please help! any suggestions?

If you look at my pictures i have done some cakes with waterfalls.
If that is the water effect you want to achieve I half mix some white and blue buttercream together and then put it on the cake in the design i want, and then i dye piping gel blue and the coat the buttercream.
You could use piping gel tinted blue OR I have seen it done on tv where they crumple up tin foil to provide the movement of the water and then they pour hot colored sugar overtop. It hardens and takes on the shape of the foil.
Tinted piping gel is the easiest way to do "water".
