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.
Thanks for the recipe. However, where in the store is the paste food color located? I've not been able to find that. latinrose
Paste and gel food colorings are found at Michael's or in the craft dept. at walmart.
Thanks for sharing Deonia.
Thanks, grma_pat. I will look for the gel and paste next time I'm in town. latinrose
Always glad to share dessert1st. It used to be cheaper to buy the premade things but now it's getting to be cheaper to make them from scratch again. I knew we'd get back to ole'time cooking again LOL
Good one. Thanks!
