Is there another edible medium I can use to make water other than piping gel? Piping gel is yuck to eat. I will need water for the pirate ship I am making next week. Thanks in advance.

Or an icing glaze, kind of like you use on cookies when you don't want royal - it dries hard and would look nice. Or you can do poured sugar - I have seen some big cake decorators do that.

I would say to try isomalt/poured sugar effect because that looks so nice when used with cakes. Just put a piece of "rough up" foil underneath where the poured sugar is going and it will give you a nice reflecting pool of water effect. If you don't want to do poured sugar because you burn yourself if your not careful then use a thin version of royal icing.

Or berry blue jello made with the jigglers recipe so it is less moist.
