Piping Gel Uses

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
How do I use piping gel to get the wet look on my cakes? For example, I have seen fabulous cakes on CC that look like green beans, chili, baked beans, shines glass bottles, patent leather, etc. In the comments by the cake artist, some say that they used piping gel to get this look. I want to use this technique but don't know exactly how the piping gel is applied or how much to use. I also want to know if the piping gel dries or does it stay wet and sticky on the cakes?

Thanks for any help.

Oh, I forgot...I'm planning on making a crock pot with either baked beans or green beans...or maybe mixed vegetables. Love the ones I've seen on CC.

You can use a soft brush or even your fingers. The trick is not to use too much. Mine never dries completely, but I don't know if that is just the way piping gel is or whether it's because of the humidity where I live.

Piping gel is NOT supposed to dry out. It will "crust" over in very dry climates but it still looks shiny.
