Hi, I was at PH and saw so many different types of gels. There is Mirror gel, Piping Gel, Glazing gel and I can't remember the rest.

Does anyone know the difference between these gels and their usage?

If I want to use for glazing fruits, which do I use?

I have seen some bakery selling beautifully glazed fruit cakes and also others where the fruits looks dried up despite the glaze. I suspect it's the glaze. Could you give me your view on this? Thanks

What I know is that they usually use apricot jam. They heat up some apricot jam with a little water so that it's more liquid (like syrup). When it's cooled, brush it over the fruits.
