I´m making a washing machine cake, and want it to look like a little water run out on the fondant below.
How do I do that?
You could use piping gel. Or add a tiny bit of blue food coloring with white fondant, and don't mix it all the way - leaaving it marbled. Flatten it out to make it look like a puddle. You could even make it shiny by rubbing a little shortening on it.
i think piping gel will do the trick ??
Oh, unfortunately piping gel isn't available here in Sweden, only by mail-order and there is no time for that!
You could use poured sugar.
I found this recipe on another thread for homemade pipin gel (original author is darkchocolate). Maybe you have these items available to you? The gel will set after it cools. HTH!
2 envelopes or 2 T of Knox Gelatin
2 T cold water
2 C light Karo Syrup
1. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a saucepan and let it sit for 5 minutes. Heat on low until gelatin has become clear/dissolved. Do not boil.
2. Add the syrup and heat thoroughly.
3. Cool and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
To color: add gel or food coloring to piping gel.
To use: put in an icing bag with a small tip or a plastic squeeze bottle.
You can make piping gel if you have all the ingredients in Sweden...
2 envelopes (2 tablespoons) unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons cold water
2 cups light corn syrup
Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a small saucepan and let set for about 5 minutes. Heat on low until the gelatin has become clear/dissolved - Do not boil. Add syrup and heat thoroughly. Cool and store, refrigerated, for up to 2 months.
Add 1/2 teaspoon piping gel to one cup of thin consistency buttercream icing to produce smoother writing and printing and pointed leaf tips.
Or there is one on CC, I haven't tried that one though...
Lol same recipe posted within one minute of each other!
You could also melt some blue hard candies.
Thanks everyone! With a double recipy of homemade piping gel I will absolutely give it a go!
if you have any kind of jello, jelly product that is blue you could use that too, just dissolve it with the smallest amount of water.
