Hi - does anybody know what the name of the product is that a lot of cake decorators use to make what looks like a gel that is tinted blue to replicate
oceans and water?
I've seen some cakes that have had wilton piping gel tinted blue.
Although I have never personally used it.
Yes. Tinted piping gel works great. You can buy piping gel at most Wal-Mart's for just under $3.00 for a 10 ounce carton.
Late one night, with no piping gel in the house, I tinted corn syrup blue and used that.
Leah..I actually found a recipe for piping gel that I want to try (someday). 99% of it (4cups!) is corn syrup. I bet the consistancy was better that store bought stuff.
Piping gel is great. I have used it in jungle themed cakes. Just add a small amount of gel color to start and then build from there. Put it on the cake where you want it and let it crust over. Voila. good luck.
Leah - corn syrup sounds great. I ran out of piping gel and I don't want to go out and get some. How does it set/dry?
