I am making an aquarium themed cake for a birthday in a few weeks. I was hoping to get a water look on my cake. I was thinking about covering it in blue fondant and then putting blue piping gel over the fondant cake and figures. Not sure how this will turn out. Any other suggestions to get this look?
Piping gel tinted blue will work well and is really pretty to me...just be sure to allow for enough drying time so that it won't be sticky!
I am worried that the piping gel will cause bleeding of my fondant figures. Have you ever encountered this?
I used piping gel for the water in my pool cake...it did not make the fondant pieces bleed, and they were in there a few hours.
By the way...
I experimented with blue jello first, ALL my scrap fondant pieces slowly dissolved, even when I made the jello with less and less water.
Thanks FlourPots. I checked out your pool cake and it looks amazing!
