Wow I know there is a lot of experts here that can answer this. My first thought is piping gel, but tray us not hard. You could melt sugar and pour it into the shape you want for the cake. I'd like to know too.

I did a sushi cake and wanted the little roe (I think they're called - the little fish eggs) to look shiney so I painted them with corn syrup. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture, but it worked pretty well thumbs_up.gif

I would go with melting sugar and pouring into the shape required, once it sets it will be like candy and have a shiny surface. Good luck!
