I have a large container of piping gel. It is suppose to be clear, but is about 3 years old. It has turned to an orange tint. Should I dare use it on a dummy that I am going to cover with White Fondant? Will the color bleed through?>

thanks for your help....

All piping gel that I've seen isn't clear but an opaque amber color. Since you want to use it on a dummy that isn't going to be eaten anyway, I'd use it. Even if it's orange (or opaque orange), it shouldn't show through fondant that's thick enough just like chocolate cake shouldn't show through.
