Has anyone tried sugarveil? How do you use it? what makes it different ? Any drawbacks? thanks
Check the search section in the archives. There are a bunch of threads about it.
I tried it once and it is just a really odd thing to work with. It pipes out nicely if you use a tiny tip... but when I tried to make their striped "fabric" by spreading a layer, combing the texture in with the comb, and then brushing on some colored Sugarveil, it just basically dissolved the first layer. Very very delicate stuff. It was like dissolving foam. Also, if you refrigerate it gets super fluffy.
Good luck, I plan to mess with it again when I get the time.
The product itself is OK, kind of a novelty. The Kit . . .meh . . .sorry I wasted money on that.
I have tried it a few times and it worked out great on the baby shower cake I did for my sister. It is in my photos where there is a baby sitting on a stork. The baby blanket is sugarveil. It took all night to set though before I could lift it. The other two times I tried it it was a waste of time because it wouldn't work.
It doesn't sound worth the effort. Thanks everyone.
I used it in my Spiderman bounce house cake...all of the webs are sugarveil... it was really easy to use and dried within 12 hours...there are ways to speed up the drying process, but I wasn't in a rush... It was very easy to drape and the taste was quite good...like chewy marshmallows...
