I want to make fake ketchup and mustard but need large quantities and don't want to purchase Piping Gel. Can I just color Corn Syrup and store it in ketchup and mustard containers for a kid's party? How long will it store for? Does the consistency work with squeeze bottles or does the Corn Syrup get too thick for the opening? I have tried frosting and icing but they both crust up and clog the opening of the squeeze bottles. The same goes for melting chocolate.

The clear corn syrup would work in a squeeze bottle, because they come in squeeze bottles. Maybe you could use those bottles (which have a flip lid like ketchup) and make lables for them to cover the lable on the bottle? And i figure you could store it for a long time, I am guess until the expirey date?

There are a couple of piping gel recipes listed on this site. I have used the Piping Gel that works a few times with no problems.
