In my cake supply shop yesterday......buying the whole shop as per usual and I came across a produce called ' Clear Edible Unbreakable Gel' (apprently you can also get it in a white version).
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??? Has any body used it and what have they used it for??
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!
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 . They are all soo detailed and fab. Still waiting for you to write a book!!! You must have something in the pipeline
Cheers Arty! You never know!
The butterfly is beautifully done. What a great idea.
So many ideas.....I feel very confident to use this product now......I'm sure I will need a bit of pratice, but I will let you know how I how I get on.
Natasha, the butterfly idea is great, your butterfly is brilliant.
Is this similar to Sugar Veil?
