It happens to me frequently. I usually have to "sneak up on it," that is, start on page 7, then go to 8, then go to 9 and it will probably be there. But not always. Quirky site.

For this recipe, has anyone tried it with cornstarch as the 0.3 grams of starch? If not, what do you use?

I put the liquid in a squeeze bottle (the kind you use for candy melts/candy making) and flung it back and forth on two-sheets-wide of waxed paper (coated in Crisco) in a criss cross pattern, and then just diagonal a few times. It dries to the touch in about an hour or two. It did not dry hard, but I messed up the recipe in halving it icon_razz.gif I halved everything except the 1 cup of water for the gelatin, so it was more liquid-y than it should have been.

Here is a picture of my webbing with mess up on the recipe:

Your so called messed up recipe for the web looks fantastic!!! That web effect is stellar since the lines aren't symmetrical and don't follow a pattern. Way to go! thumbs_up.gif

BUT...

I just want to say, that amazing as they make it seem...Sugarveil did not work for me. I have posted this before. I think I'm pretty capable in the kitchen. I bought the powder, followed instructions to a tee, 3 times. I kept getting a very frothy liquid that actually turned yellow in the bag after a day.
I wrote to the company and they suggested I tried again. I did....and I was very careful....no dice.
I have read forums where people have had success....maybe it was me? Maybe I got a bad batch? Who knows....but this was my experience.

3 egg whites
1Tbsp Cream of Tartar

1 pkg Gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)
2 cups MM (melted)

I mixed the first 3 ingredients together for 10 minutes as if making royal........then added the Gelatin, then the Marshmellows..........beat until it is stiff enough to pipe ( maybe 5 more minutes or so)

Try it and see what you think!

I've been scrolling through this thread, and got up to page 6 or 7 and quit. Where is the recipe for this? Did I miss it, or is it not here? Does anyone know? Thanks in advance.

Just stumbled across your post and figured I'd share a recent little discovery, you can spread sugarveil out really thin on a silicone mat and run it through a Cricut machine or any other electronic cutting machine to cut any design you need and I have been making some lace stencils for my cakes and will be trying this in the next few weeks on a few cake orders I have to fill....... Good luck and hope this helps.

ASomethin Sweet, can I use meringue powder instead of egg whites so it doesn't need refrigeration?

Hello, quick question about this recipe to the people that have tried it. Does this means I can do some designs with this icing and they'll be flexible/bendable just like sugarveil??

If it works I sure would like to have the ratio of the ingrediants

AThe humidity here is extremely high.so I always use oven to dry my confectionery icing. But once I take them out and keep in the air. They would turn to be sticky and soft again. Anyone has the idea to prevent this ? Or is it just normal? [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3026124/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

It would be normal if that is confectionary icing.  Not sure with the sugar veil from what I understand of the product.  I have not used it to be quite honest.

 

The ingrediant to making the recipe flexible would be xanthan gum.  Think chewing gum, it is the ingredient the makers of chewing gum use for that purpose.

Hi I have a home made sugar veil recipe! 

 

You can increase the amount of ingredients if you need more of it.

Here goes..

1 Tbsp Tylose

1/4 cup BOILING Water

1Tbsp confectioner sugar

2 level tbsp corn starch

1/4 tsp meringue powder/egg white powder

1/2 tsp. corn syrup

Pinch of white icing color or one of your choice color

 

Add Tylose to boiling water and with a small fork mix until you get a clear mixture.

When mix is clear, add confectioner sugar and mix, then add your cornstarch and mix again.  Add the meringue powder and mix again.  Then add your corn syrup.

Add coloring after this has been mixed. 

 

this mix can be kept in the refrigerator for a week.  To work with it leave it at room temperature.  Once you have made the lace, you can store it in a plastic zip lock bag.

To restore the elasticity, just place a damp kitchen towel on top, but not too long... keep checking it.

 

Good Luck!!!! :)

AI have bought the sugar veil set and other mats and its been a complete disaster. Not as easy as they make it look! One day I will try again.

I do know that one of the tips in using sugarveil is that you must not use any water that has been chemically softened, or with any added minerals.

They suggest you use only pure water no minerals or fluoride in it. Try using distilled water or water made by the Gerber Company called PURE.

Also, make sure that your home humidity is not too high or too low.
