SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA
In a similar fashion as 'Brush Embroidery', you can create sketch-like effects with SugarVeil Icing.

List of Materials

  • SugarVeil Icing
  • Icing Dispenser, parchment cone, or piping bag fitted with small tip
  • Flat toothpick
  • parchment paper (greased)

1. Start with a simple flower design outlined with frilled edges.

2. Mix SugarVeil Icing as directed. After mixed, stir in a few drops of additional water to use in the SugarVeil Icing Dispenser. Place cartridge over mixture and, using plunger, fill cartridge 2/3 full with the icing. Here's the Icing Disenser - http://www.sugarveil.com/icing_dispenser/index.htm. Alternately, you can use a parchment cone, or a piping bag fitted with a small tip.

3. Place a sheet of greased parchment over the design. Attach the largest tip (salmon-colored) to the cartridge and insert into the Icing Dispenser. Place your finger over the hole of the Icing Dispenser [http://www.sugarveil.com/icing_dispenser/index.htm] and trace the outside lines. The reason for the frilled edges is so a substantial amount of icing can be placed at the edges of the petals.

4. Using a flat toothpick, pull the edges of the petal outlines toward the center in swift strokes, leaving small spaces between the strokes.

5. When the outer edges have all been 'pulled' inward to create sketched lines, use the Icing Dispenser to outline the second set of petals.

6. Use the flat toothpick again to pull the border line of the interior set of petals inward.

7. When SugarVeil Icing is set, remove the flower by pulling the parchment paper in a downward direction over a sharp edge.

I am amazed that works! It is beautiful!
What a lovely cake. Very clever.
fab cannot wait
This is gorgeous, I can't wait to try it!
This is absolutely gorgeous :)
Really like this. Thank you for sharing. Time to experiment again - :)
This is a really beautiful technique!
Once the icing has set and is hard, how to you get it to BLEND on the edges of the cake WITHOUT breaking the flowers??????
Newhome, when the SugarVeil Icing is set, it is flexible, which allows it to bend and blend nicely atop the cake's surface. There's more information that shows how SugarVeil works at http://www.youtube.com/sugarveil and http://www.sugarveil.com. Thank you!
I love Sugarveil!!!
Hope this isn't a stupid question...Is there a recipe for this icing or do you have to order it?
did you have to wait overnight before using the sugarveil or did you use it straight after mixing? Thanks
Olubola, you can use the SugarVeil directly after mixing for this technique, and for all other techniques like combing, stenciling, piping, and spreading into 'fabric'. For the Confectioners' Mats, use 2nd day SugarVeil. More tips are in the 'Notes' section of http://www.facebook.com/sugarveilicing. Thank you!
Once you make a design, how long will it keep?  
Indefinitely, bouginvelia. Store SugarVeil decorations between parchment sheets in a Ziplock bag out of sunlight. Should they become dry after weeks, handle gently and pass lightly thru a stream of steam (tea kettle or boiling pot of water, for example) to restore flexibility.
