Piping Gel

“This can be colored and/or flavored as desired. I have doubled and tripled this recipe also. I use it to brush on unfrosted cake surfaces prior to placing fondant on cakes when necessary. It makes great little champagne ‘bubbles’ or creates the raindrop effect on roses too.”

Piping Gel


  • 2 envelopes (2 tablespoon) Knox unflavored gelatine
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 cups light Karo syrup


  1. Soak gelatine in water. Heat over low heat source until clear and dissolved. Do NOT boil. Add syrup and heat thoroughly. Cool and store in refrigerator for up to 2 months.
  2. To Color: Add coloring paste/gel or food coloring drops to get desired color.
  3. To Use: Put in icing bag and decorate.
