Hi everyone! I am doing a wedding cake next month and the bride wants rustic icing with red tops. I've attached a picture of what she meant by the tops of the tiers being red (they are pink in the picture, but that is the look she wants). Do you think that the red is straight piping gel, or is it mixed with something else? I RARELY use piping gel so does it get that dried look once it sets, or does it stay glossy? I will be assembling the cake on site so if it's piping gel, that's probably not something I should do before I stack the cakes, right? If it were up to me, I would just use red buttercream but she clearly stated red icing/gel, so I am thinking she wants that shiny look. I'm sorry for all of the questions....I just have no experience with using piping gel other than to write!
