I want to make a "stained glass" window on part of a sheet cake frosted with white BC. My questions are do I outline the "window" with black piping gel or black BC? Will the colors run onto the white BC if it sits overnight? Any info would be so helpful. Thanks in advance.

Bulldog,

I think you can do either. I have had the black BC colored icing kind of "feather" before if it sits too long. I worked at DQ years ago and we did all the piping with piping gel, outlines and all and didn't have any problems with the coloring running, but they were ice cream cakes and they were frozen.

Hope this helps!

Bulldog,

Just so you know, I have never used piping gel before, and you may already know this but the other day there was a forum on piping gel and everybody was talking about how it did not taste very good. I will try to find the link to that forum and post it. I have no idea if it is just a sensitive palette sort of thing or if it really has a bad taste. Just thought I'd give a heads up.
