My kids are allergic to artificial flavors and colors. I am taking some cake decorating courses to try to make more professional looking cakes for them. Piping Gel is one thing had not been able to find an alternative for I went looking for recipes. This one was posted on the Feingold Group on Yahoo by Covey Denton. Original description from creator: The colors (that are normally muted in regular icing) really popped! I also tried it with an approved juice and the color was really a vivid purple and vivid red. I just omitted the sugar when I used the juice. Just thought I would share a neat recipe and a fun alternative to icing.


  1. Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan.
