How to do I get a stain glass effect on fondant. I researched the net and piping gel keeps coming up. Is there another method.

the only one I know of is piping gel as well. maybe some kind of poured sugar? hopefully someone with that experience can respond. good luck!

I've never tried it but you might could try colored gelatin sheets.

If you look at my photos you will 2 that I have done using jelly (jello) and turkish delight outlined with chocolate. Have not seen anyone else do it this way and was very successful. Can't attach a photo at the moment.

I made the turkish delight - its basically made of gelatin/sugar/water cooked and poured into a tin wait to set then cut and roll in sugar but I coloured and piped it when it cooled as it takes about 24hrs to set. - if you google recipies something should come up. I am off to bed soon so if you have no luck I can type it out tomorrow. The reason I used chocolate for the outline is because royal icing and fondant strips will melt when in contact with jelly or turkish delight - plus its faster and tastier thumbs_up.gif
