I've been researching this sugarveil system and was wondering if you guys have tried it out. Is it challenging, expensive, not really worth it or is it awesome??? It seems like a great idea!

I have this system. When I first receivedit, I was scared of it. Now, I love it I use it not only with the sugarviel powder, but chocolate, anything that will go through the syringes.

Do you have the whole $200 icing dispenser or just the DVD and comb? I've heard you can learn how to use the SugarVeil system with just the comb and DVD, is that true? If so, that would be a lot more cost efficient, at least for me, at this point.

I have the whole sugarveil system and i LOVE it. I actually have never used the sugarveil itself yet. Just havent had a use for it. But im sure once i use it once i will find so many things to do with it. But i use the whole dispenser for all of my chocolate transfers and it works amazingly. I really have no idea how i would make so many detailed CTs without it. I highly suggest it!!! usaribbon.gif

Melissa, You mentioned that you used the sugar veil for making your own chocolate transfers, would you share how. I just got one and never considered it as a use. Sounds great though. Thanks.

This is picture of the craft store version....I have yet to open it. In fact, I was going to return since I figured I was never going to use it.

What else can we use this for if we don't have the sugarveil icing? Has anyone used the cheapie version? This was regular $20-$25 at Michaels and I used a 50% coupon so if it works, I will hang onto it. thanks icon_smile.gif

I have the SugarVeil system and love it. I use it for piping, making letters, placing dragees, etc. I have fibromyalgia and it so much easier on my hands than squeezing a piping bag. You can use the icing without the system to get a feel for whether or not you like it. I really like the icing because it kind of "melds" into itself so you don't get the ridges that you might with royal or buttercream -- it rounds itself out. No points on dots either.
