Okay, I have large cake that I colored part of it blue, for the water, and I am putting piping gel over the top. Unfortunatly, I cant find my other 2 things of piping gel!! I dont know if I left them at the store, or if they are right under my nose..

so, is there ANYWAy I can stretch this piping gel?? I HAVE to have it.

and I have TRIED to make piping gel, I dont think it turns out right... I have a bottle of Karo- can I put that in there? mix it up real good??

If it were me I would go back to the store and get more piping gel. It may be a pain to do that but I think it would more of a pain not to. HTH
