Cake decorating gel recipe

The recipe idea:
Decorating gel is used to add designs to your cake. Use it to draw pictures (like water, leaves, flowers, etc.) borders or words on your cake. Divide this recipe in parts to create various colors of gel.


  • 2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatine
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 cups light corn syrup (try Karo)
  • Food coloring

In heavy saucepan, sprinkle gelatine over cold water and let sit for about 5 minutes. Stirring, heat mixture over low heat until clear and dissolved. Do not boil. Add corn syrup and heat thoroughly without boiling. Remove from heat. Refrigerate. Add food coloring.
To decorate, put decorating gel into icing bag and apply to frosted cake. Can be stored and refrigerated for up to 6 months. thoughts:
