piping gel

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to ask if anyone knows if I put a few dots of piping gel on sugar flowers will it make the flowers soft like water does? I like the look of piping gel but I wouldn’t want use it if it will spoil my flowers.

Many thanks.


Hi Ozzym

That’s what I use to make droplets of water on flowers and sea spray. It dries and leaves a lovely clear sheen but you can also colour it with very tiny amounts of colour. If you want to make water droplets, using it in a piping bag with a small nozzle gives better results for shapes.


Thanks very much madeitwithlove it is good of you to take the time to answer my query.
Kind regards, Mandy– Ozzym
