In the years now that I have been making cakes, I have NEVER used piping gel. I am anticilating using it tomorrow for an ocean cake that is being consumed Friday. It will sit on top of fondant, and be refrigerated for most of the time until the party (outdoors but in the shade, not overly hot). How does it hold? Thanx!

It will hold up very well. If its on top of the cake. They only thing you have to be concerned about with piping gel (Wilton Brand) is if you use it on the sides of the cake, that brand will slide down your cake usually. I have went to White Stokes piping gel, and really love it. You can put it any where on the cake and it will stay there. Hope this helps, Happy Cake Decorating thumbs_up.gif
