Homemade Piping Gel

Swimming Pool Cake

When you're in a pinch and you don't have any store bought piping gel on hand, this recipe is a good substitute! Plus, it tastes better.

1⁄3 cup Granulated Sugar (67 grams)
1 tablespoon Cornstarch (7 grams)
1⁄4 cup Lemon Juice (59 ml)
1⁄4 cup Water (59 ml)
  1. Mix over high heat until boiling & then let cool. You can tint this gel any color you'd like with gel colors.

Please note, this recipe creates a much thinner consistency piping gel than the store bought brand.
When I need it a bit thicker than this, I either add a bit less water or let it boil a bit longer on the stove, making sure to stir it often.
