I have a cake order coming up for a punk rock theme. The party is going to have blacklights and everything that will glow in the dark. I thought it would be so cool to have painting on the cake that glows also. I have heard of using tonic water but not sure how to use it and if it would work on a fondant cake. Seems like it would make the fondant sticky.

tonic water is mixed with piping gel to paint or pipe on.

I got this recipe here on CC, but it didn't give measurements. icon_sad.gif

Put clear piping gel in a saucepan and heat until smooth.
Add tonic water.
Add plain gelatin.
Heat until thick.
Let stand for 2 hours.

I assume you can add whatever color you want to the tonic water. HTH!

Following! How much tonic water and gelatin do you add to piping gel?
