I saw a wedding cake show. One of the decorators used some sort of special royal icing that she drew out a spider web on wax paper.
After it dried, she was able to pick it up and mold it onto a 3 tiered cake. Does anyone know what kind of royal this could have been. It was really neat! Thanks to anyone that can help.

Didn't catch that show, but she might have used the SugarVeil system...

Here's a related (but corrupted) thread:

I printed out the faux SugarVeil recipe, but not the CC author icon_redface.gif (I was still new then.)

3 egg whites
1 Tbsp. Cream of Tartar
2 lbs. Powdered Sugar
1 pkg. Gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)
2 cups MM* (melted)

*Marshmallows

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)

Here's a SugarVeil helpful hints/tips thread:
