Ok I'm watching food networks cake challenge 3. Mary used some kind of glow the dark icing?! icon_eek.gif I didn't catch what she used. Does anyone know?? It only glows under a black light. Maybe tonic water?
TIA

No idea..but it's kinda frightening to think anything truely glow in the dark is edible. The closest i've done to glow in the dark 'looking' is icing a cookie is really black icing and then piping on it with neon green.
I'm curious what they used too.

I think they said it was the quinine in the tonic water that caused the glow.

quinine glows in the dark under blacklight, apparently. I don't know if it worked as my DVR started misbehaving and so I have to wait til the pacific airing later tonight

Kerry Vincent said she didn't think there was a strong enough concentration of quinine in the tonic water for it to work, but it looked pretty good to me.

I'd like to know too. My wife decided to call her mom just as they were talking about what was being used.

Thanks everyone. Thats what I thought. Tonic water and what looks like piping gel.

OK, I'm not putting quinine in my icing.

Yep, that's what she used...tonic water in piping gel. They turned off the bright stage lights, and voila-firefly glow! It didn't glow really brightly, but the glow was there, and may have been distorted by the studio lights.
You can bet I'll give this a try icon_wink.gif!

Is the quinine already in the tonic water, or did she add it? I missed the show tonight...our company just wouldn't leave!

James was eliminated. He and Bronwen had 30 minutes to decorate a cake out of what was in the box.

kjt~ please let me know how it turns out if you try this! I'm not a fan of piping get as it looks like slime to me.

If you do try this, please portion it out so I know exactly how much you used of everything to be able to pipe it. Thank you so much!

Mary had to have used a ton of gel as it was pipeable.

Glad she got on. Sad James had to leave. Shame on him for that crappy 30 min. cake he did. He should have known Bronwen could pull it off fast. Poor James. Wish he could have stayed.

I think this is what saved her somewhat, I was disappointed to see that the globe fell out of her figures hand. And she wasnt prepared!!! These people are amazing to such all this talent, I see them and think...wow!!! I will never be able to do that.

But then again, I never was able to ice a cake before in my life and now I think Ive come along way in just 2yrs. starting this and only 8mos really getting into this. and I love it!!!! Im hooked. No Intrevention needed here.

so is the show over now? I mean James got kicked off after the 30min challenge.
