Homemade Piping Gel?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I attended a decorating class and the teacher mentioned how 'expensive' it was to buy piping gel and how easy it was to do it yourself with corn syrup. She just casually mentioned the recipe which I no longer remember except for the corn syrup. icon_sad.gif

Anyone here who do their own Piping Gel? Anyone got a good recipe for it? icon_smile.gif

Thanks in advance! icon_wink.gif

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who wont anymore, & who always will. So don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

When making this be careful to stir slowly, as you don't want to get air bubbles in the gel. The first time I made it, I got too many bubbles in it.

Thank you for sharing with everyone. I never even thought that you could make your own piping gel.

I was just at Michael's and was going to buy piping gel but it was pretty expensive and I thought just maybe I could find a recipe for it!!!! The first post I read and here it is. This is great. I read that you could use this to attach fondant and gumpaste flowers to cakes. Can you tell me some other uses for this piping gel?
Thanks so much
