  • REC: Homemade piping gel

    I know a lot of you like to make cakes for parties  and I thought you might like to be able  to save some money on piping gel, which is expensive for those little tubes from Wally world. Here's a recipe for it that is very inexpensive and is exactly the same thing.

    HOMEMADE PIPING GEL

    2 cups white corn syrup

    1-2 envelopes unflavored gelatin ( 2 envelopes make a stiffer gel)

    2 Tbsp. cold water

    Soak gelatin in 2 tablespoons water. Heat on low until clear and gelatin is melted, then add the corn syrup. allow to heat thoroughly, then store in a covered container. This product can be tinted with paste food colors. This should be stored in a refrigerator and used within a few weeks as it molds. This is because there are NO PRESERTATIVES in it.

    Paste and gel food colorings are found at Michael's or in the craft dept. at walmart.
