My family bought me the Sugar Veil Standard Kit from Icing Images for Christmas. I can't wait to use it, I have been wanting this ever since it came out. They had a special before Christmas sale. It was under $200. WOW
Wow, what a great gift. Don't forget to send pictures.
Have fun! It's messy! Pay attention to the humidity levels in your home, it is very important as to how the stuff dries, whether it stays tacky, whether it crackles, etc. Finicky stuff at times!
Geez, I wish I'd known you wanted the kit. I probably would have sold you mine. It's one of the few cake tools I actually regret buying. Maybe you can teach me something about it to make me like it. Become the CC Sugarveil expert, OK?
leahs what didn't you like about it. I'll need all the help I can get.
Well, I don't know what Leah doesn't like about it, but it's basically like working with a big pile of melted marshamallows....sticky, messy....can turn "not fun" in a heartbeat! I'll probably still use mine every once in awhile, I've got it vacuum stored away for longer shelf life.
I liked the product OK. It does some cool stuff. I object to the kit. It appears to be an aquarium pump, a plactic tackle box, some syringes, and some other off the shelf stuff that's been assembled, marked up to probably 3 times it's value or 5 times its cost and sold as a "kit."
I LOVE the stuff! It makes writing so much easier and I love using it to do logos.
I do agree that the air pen is not worth the money. I just use my regular piping bags and tips. It does take some time to get the consistency right, but all in all I really like it!
If you get the DVD it teaches you all kinds of things that you can do with it.
Oh my goodness Janel...I just looked at your gallery, that Christmas with Jesus cake is the most touching creation I have ever seen. I personally would not have been able to do something like that....as the fondant would have dissolved away from all the tears I would have been shedding on it.
Thank you so much!! It was not an easy cake to make (emotionally). I noticed that I was much more patient with my 2 year old that day and I was so concerned about making it look perfect for those families!
I was suprised when I opened it and saw the pump and tubing the the syringes, but I did come across a post on the internet that the stuff comes out of the syringes with a steady flow that it would with using just a bag. We will see, some day in the next few weeks we will have a play day and see what we can do. I'll let you know. Thanks for all your help.
