I'm making a beach themed sheet cake & it will have an ocean on half of it. The cake will be covered with buttercream. I know I have to use piping gel and blue coloring, but how do I apply it?

-Do I need to make waves from the buttercream, then put piping gel on?
-Do I need to tint my buttercream blue? Or is white okay?

leave your buttercream a little messy, don't make it smooth, once you chill it you should have no problem applying the blue colored piping gel with a spatula. the white underneath will make it look nice and blue
