I am making a fish pond cake for a child's birthday. Cake will be iced with buttercream. I was thinking of making the fish with royal icing, then covering them with piping gel "water". Will this work or will the royal icing melt after being sandwiched between the buttercream and the piping gel?

Moisture is what causes royal icing to soft or 'melt'. I'm not sure but I'm thinking the moisture from the piping gel may not go with the royal.

If you have some royal sitting around you can always do a dry and see?

perhaps fondant fish? or those little candies that are fish-shaped?
