I'm helping my daughter do her plant cell project, so naturally she wanted it made out of cake.  We were thinking of making the cytoplasm out of sparkle gel (kind of like the water in pool cakes), but I'm not sure how to fill the entire area.  Can I thin the gel with water to make it easier to spread, and cut down on the cost?

 

Thanks!

AThinned out piping gel would be a more affordable option. The sparkle gel looks similar to piping gel so I would imagine you could thin that out too. Best of luck on the project!

Thanks!  I hope it works.  I'm a little annoyed that her project has suddenly become my project!  I swore, I wasn't going to be "one of those parents," but here I am.  Shame on me!!
