Piping Gel

Recently have been busying searching and planning cakes for myself and my daughter. Anyone out there please share chocolate praline royale mousse cake (Four leaves coco exotic cake)? Trying to do for my birthday on 25 Nov. Nothing beats a favorite and lovely cake bake by myself on my birthday. PLSSSS!!!

Prepare this gel for my daughter birthday cake decoration.

2 tbsps gelatine
2 tbsps cold water
2 cups light corn syrup

  • Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a small saucepan and let set for about 5 minutes.
  • Double boil or microwave on low until the gelatin has become dissolved - DO NOT BOIL.
  •  Add the syrup and heat thoroughly. Cool and store, refrigerated, for up to 2 months.

TO COLOR: Add coloring paste/gel or food coloring drops to get desired color.
TO USE: Put in icing bag or plastic squeeze bottle and decorate.

Wow. You are so creative to make your own piping gel. I should try it soon. Is it the same as store bought ones?

Hi Weng, thanks for dropping by my blog! Not too sure if it the same as store bought, but it works for me. I think it should not be a problem. Another replacement for light corn syrup is light Karo syrup, which can be found in giant or cold storage. Hope this help :)
