Has anyone ever used a homemade piping gel? I found this recipe:

2 envelopes (2 tablespoons) Knox unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons cold water
2 cups light Karo syrup

1. Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a small saucepan and let set for about 5 minutes. Heat on low until the gelatin has become clear/dissolved - DO NOT BOIL.

2. Add the syrup and heat thoroughly.

3. Cool and store, refrigerated, for up to 2 months.

I am making a stained glass cross this weekend and do not have access to any store bought gel. What do you think?

Thanks!

Hmmm, that sounds like it would work. Try it and let us know how it turns out. icon_biggrin.gif

Yes, this is what I use all the time, also. I like having a way to make things that would otherwise require my ordering on line, (expensive, what with S&H), or making a long trip to town. It works great.

That same recipe (different proportions) is found in the CC recipes sections (with reviews):
