Topic: Piping Gel too runny
JanRitt 04/22/2011 2:45 PM

Help, I added color to my piping gel and it is too runny to use as an outline. Can I add something to thicken it up? Thanks.

Corn Syrup will work.

I bet you need to add unflavored gelatin.

Thanks, Mike179 and mmumsie for the info. I will try them both. I can't believe this is the first time I had this problem, and I have been working with piping gel for several years now. Thanks again

Well, which worked? Curious minds want to know!

Well, I can't explain this one, but it has been a while since I needed to use my gel for a cake and when I opened it up, it actually was thicker without doing anything with it! Can you explain that? I guess it just gets thicker as it "ages"? Well anyway, thanks for the posts. Sorry I haven't gotten back here sooner, but I had a lull in my cake orders, but it is picking up again.
