What can piping gel be used for? - Page 2

post #16 of 18

That's a good idea using it in buttercream when using a # 1 tip. I just couldn't get the icing out of that tip. I will try this very soon. thanks.

You can use it in whipped Cream Icing. Here is the recipe for Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing.

 

1 cup heavy whipping cream (mix together with 10x sugar to soft peak stage)

2 tablespoons confectioners sugar

 

2 tablespoons Piping Gel (Add piping gel and extract)

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Yields about 2 cups.

 

Can double or triple if you are using as filling and icing to cover cake. This is for those who do not like too sweet of icing.
