In my cake supply shop yesterday......buying the whole shop as per usual icon_rolleyes.gif and I came across a produce called ' Clear Edible Unbreakable Gel' (apprently you can also get it in a white version). icon_surprised.gif

I brought it, and it comes with good instructions on how to mix & make it (it comes in power form).......But I am now wondering what I will use it for??? icon_confused.gif Has any body used it and what have they used it for?? icon_smile.gif


Thank you.

Yes, I've used it. I piped a spiders web with it and left it to dry then glued over it a little and sprinkled glitter onto it (it was the non toxic but non edible kind which wasn't going to be eaten anyway). I piped onto a piece of plastic then peeled it off easily and trimmed the ends but you can use wax paper on a flat surface too. Also if you spread it onto a plastic surface and allow it to dry, you can then trim it with scissors to make windows, you know, if you were making a construction of some sort, the "windows" can be position behind the frame...if you know what I mean (I don't think I'm making sense now!!) and it will look like a window from the outside. That's all I've ever done with it but I'm sure there will be many more ideas. Hope that helps! thumbs_up.gif

You can use it to pipe whiskers for animals too, Lindy Smith does it a lot - so cute!

You can use it as a 'washing line' with little clothes hanging off it. Or cables between pylons (can't think why you'd ever do a cake with pylons on but...)

Thank you all for your quick responses. I guess I will have to play around with it....I was thinking I might use it for an modelled elephant with water coming out of it's trunk.

Aine2 good to hear from you, just been looking at your lastest pics thumbs_up.gif. They are all soo detailed and fab. Still waiting for you to write a book!!! You must have something in the pipeline icon_wink.gif

Thank you
