I've come across a few recipes that uses decogel as part of its cake decoration. Can someone advise what exactly is that? I thought it might be piping gel but I may be wrong.

Thanks in advance for any advice. island

Hi Lileeng

I agree with your hutch. I'm sure it's decorating gel. Wilton's has a great variety: http://www.cakedecoratingcentral.com.au/category71_1.htm

Cheers

What is it used for in the recipe? Tinting it and use for decor or for glazing?

Thanks Ange and Zurynee. 1 recipe uses it for decorating, while another recipe use it also as a glaze. That's why I am a bit blur what this 'deco gel' is. Mainly I find them in Malaysian bakers recipe. see stars

I think it's save to replace it with piping gel. Sometimes for me I will add a bit of colouring and flavor to the piping gel and sometimes I will buy the flavoured gel from Ailin. Glazing I use jam with hot water added and than strain it. Works well for me Very Happy
