Hi Dawn

I had a go today and it was unsuccessful unfortunately.  When I added the tylose to the hot water it went very thick and lumpy and when I started to add dry ingredients it just went drier and lumpier.  Could you do a tutorial so I can see it made please?

I watched the youtube video that Sirena mentions but I found that I had to add more water to mine.

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!!!! icon_smile.gif

 

 

 

Hi DawnEdwards,can I swap meringue powder/egg white powder with fresh eggs whites,and if yes how many fresh eggs whites?

My SugarVeil bag was 1 cup of powdered mix, to which you aqdd 1/2 cup boiling water & beat on hi 4 minutes. It made about 1.5 cups marshmallow fluff consistency icing, that I have used in fondant lace molds, on waxed parchment, and now I'm trying Silpat or other silicone mats. 1/2 teaspoon made a strip of lace 1" wide by 8" long, so a little goes a long way.  The 1 cup bag cost $6 at my local (somewhat high priced) cake decorating supply store.  Fast, easy & reliable are worth $6.....Hope to be able to buy the dispenser tool someday, but it's about $150 for the entire kits.  BTW< I have kept mine usused icing in a bowl, with plastic wrap placed directly on top so there is no air contact, and my oicing has stayed white & workable for a week.  I'm in high humidity area, so drying takes longer, but I keep the molds under a ceiling fan till the project is dry to touch, and then test to see if it's ready to remove, i.e. set.  To answer other questions I've seen re: SugarVeil: it is Kosher, it does contain eggs & gelatins.

Don't know if you got an answer yet or not, but when working with isomalt we use a dehumidifying aid. Take a look at the following link to see if any of them would work for you.

AI just used the recipe posted by Dawn and it worked. The first batch was no good but i tried again but needed to use a bit more water. It took about 6 hours to dry before it came out of the moulds. (Cheap moulds from Ebay). Going to use rest of mix tomorrow and make more lace.

AHi I made this homemade recipe too. But it almost looks like a choux pastry. Does it have to be quite runny...mine has turned out bit like a lumpy dough I did manage to spread it not sure wat the end result should look like once all combined together. We'll see after about 6-8 hrs. To see if set. Am very excited and keeping my fingers crossed it turns out. Will keep you all posted

I just started following this thread and don't have time to read back through all 13 pages.  Could someone possibly post a link to the recipe or tell me what page it is on?  I tried a recipe that I got from a friend and it is stays sticky on the bottom (side that is touching the mold).  I haven't been able to get a piece out without it sticking to itself.  Thanks!

Previous page (pg. 12). People are just discussing the fact that someone said it does work, but that it needs more water, so be on the lookout for that.

Thank you SO much!!  The recipe I tried had 1/2 cup of corn syrup, so no wonder it was sticky!  I'll try this one, watching out for the water quantity.

By the way, it was Croxholden who said it worked for her:

AUpdate to my last post, I used about i tablespoon on water extra. The mix was like a jelly but it works. Kept the leftover on the fridge overnight, just refilled my moulds, so in a couple of hours I will have more lace. I let the lace from last night dry out over night, and put it on a wet paper towel for 60seconds, its soft again and is staying soft in a plastic ziplock bag.

The only ingredient that i couldnt get was meringue powder, so being Australian I used Pavlova Magic.

Hi Croxholden, I'm Australian too, could you please tell me where can I buy Pavlova Magic and, how much you put into the recipe instead of 1/4 tsp meringue powder/egg white powder? 
Thanks

Hello all - just happened upon this post and wanted to be sure to make a correction: SugarVeil contains no gelatin (it's also OU Kosher Pareve non-gluten, non-dairy, and contains no additives or preservatives). And on the eve of Halloween, here's a timely note: we've just added a set of three new mats to the website (including a spider web), and are giving away a sugar skull mold for a limited time with the mats: http://sugarveil.com/mat/gothic-mat.htm. You might get a kick out of this video showing 'live' skeletons demoing the mats, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am1J7I6pknQ&feature=c4-overview&list=UUr1MIDb0OmyMmpkqxsGq-Rw. Thank you!

AWhat type of lace mold did you us?

blwilley Posted 28 Oct 2013 , 3:32am
post #210 of 287
The molds come from ebay, cost about $3.50 each with free shipping.
 
 
This recipe works well with these molds.  To re-soften to bend around your cake, just lay a damp cloth over them for a minute or so.
 
Sugar Lace (or MOCK SUGARVEIL)
 
   1 T. Tylose 
1/4 c boiling water
    1 T. conf sugar
   1 T. cornstarch
1/2 tsp meringue powder
1/2 tsp corn syrup
 

In mixer bowl, combine Tylose & water, mix until completely clear.  Then add the other ingredients, one at a time, in the following order, blending well after each addition.

Conf. Sugar, cornstarch, meringue powder, then corn syrup.  When all is added, beat on medium high for 4 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl with spatula as needed.  A hand mixer can be used because the amt. you are working with is so small.  Store in ziplock bag with all excess air removed or SV will dry out.  Pipe to make webs,nets, & flower outlines.  When using molds, leave flat to DRY WELL, before handling.  Bending the dry mold will break the lace.  If the finished items become too stiff, soften them by placing a slightly damp towel over item as needed to regain flexibility, then remove from mold & bend to apply to cake.  Store finished items flat in airtight containers or ziplocks.  Cleanup with hot water.  Sometimes the lace will rise out of the mold as it dries.
