Piping Gel question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need to know how long it will take piping gel to dry. I have Pirate theme cake to do and want to use piping gel to give the water look of depth. Is anyone familiar with using it in this fashion?? hat1.gif

That is what I thought it would do, but reading online people say to let it dry completely. I may just have to airbrush some pearl dust over it to give it a sheen.

piping gel doesn't dry, it just gets a little stiff. icon_lol.gif

Thanks to all. I think my questions were answered.

I recently did a cake with piping gel on it and I was worried about if it would dry and I found that it just got stiff. I never worked with it before and I was just squeezing it on and letting it blend together on its own but that seemed to make it more thick and softer. Towards the end I figured out that if I used a paint brush to guide it around, it came out thinner and I could control it more. Just an idea! icon_biggrin.gif
Good Luck
