Rated 5 out of 5 by bsewsnoopy from I did this one for a new-membership Sunday at church. I adapted the design to match the stained-glass pattern on the plates and napkins, so it all coordinated. I found it much easier to fill in the gel "glass" after I let the black outlines dry a bit to prevent any bleeding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Malou from I loved this cake, everyone was so impressed with the technique, I'm planing on doing more stained glass cakes because is adorable. The gel color a little is enough and same goes for piping gel. The wilton instructions and picture help a lot to get it done right. I used boiled icing instead of buttercream and the result was good, making the outline with tip 2 makes the finish product more delicate, at the end tip 2 was all I used and I created the patron on parchment paper and transfered with transparent piping gel it worked perfectly

Rated 4 out of 5 by MargaretFRN from I used the technique but made a square and a round cake. To make it easier I used cookie cutters to imprint the designs on the cake.They were geometric shaped and round cutters. I also make a drawing of the basic design before making the cake. Co- workers loved the cakes.
