So I got some Sugar Veil a LONG time ago. I decided to mess around with it today. And I used it to make bows. OMG they look awesome and are much easier and even more realistic than the gumpaste bows. I mixed the product last night and let it set up over night and then early this afternoon I got around to making the bows. I am attaching some pictures.

Wow they look incredible! Isn't it $$$ ? Do you have to buy the whole kit or just the actual product in order to make stuff? I couldn't tell when I was looking at it a while back.

This special icing that dries and will stay flexible for a while. You can get it at sugarveil.com. I have the machine but never use it. The icing mix isn't very expensive.

To make the bows I only used the mix. I made the mix. Smoothed it flat on parchement paper. For the striped one I used a cake comb. I don't remember how much it cost. I got mine a long time ago but am loving the results. They took less than a minuted to make. used scissors to cut out the rectangles to make the bows. It was super easy, easier than gum paste.

Love the "movement" in your bows. They definitely look like the real thing.

I'm thinking it's tutorial time icon_biggrin.gif (pretty please icon_lol.gif )
