Ok so I keep seeing all these posts that mention "sugarveil" trying to figure it out I google it and an awesome YouTube video comes up of a cake "decorating itself". Can anyone give me more information about this neat looking product.... and is it possible to make it yourself?
I could be wrong, but I believe someone posted about adding something to Royal Icing to make it pliable like sugarveil!
Here is the link to the thread
I saved the info on my computer because I want to try it:
"How to make Flexible Royal Icing:
We have discovered a great secondary use for our new gumpaste mix. You can make a flexible royal icing out of it. Have you ever piped royal icing out onto parchment paper to make cake decorations, only to have most of them break prior to use? Well, here's your answer: Simply mix 1 cup of our TBK gumpaste mix with 1/3 cup hot water, beat well with an electric mixer, (it will be soft) and use to pipe out designsonto lightly greased parchment paper. Print out designs or monograms from your computer, lay under the parchment, and trace. Allow to dry overnight, and the pieces will be flexible and "rubbery". The vegetable gums in the gumpaste mix are the cause of this. Also works great for piping out rope borders or strings of pearls, then pick them up and stick on your cake! It is a little too soft to make royal icing roses out of it, but piped designs are perfect! Works on the white or chocolate gumpaste mix. The chocolate comes out a little stringier, but it's worth the trouble for such fantastic results!"
Glad that you discovered SugarVeil! Our website is here: http://www.sugarveil.com, with a gallery which shows many techniques you can do with SugarVeil Icing - making everything from incredibly fine edible lace to bird cage-like bridal veils and satin fabric.
If you'd like to see videos of how to make the lace, they are at http://www.youtube.com/sugarveil. There's also a recent Cake Central tutorial using SugarVeil here: http://cakecentral.com/tutorial/sketching-sugarveil and a beautiful lace overlay technique in the latest Cake Central Magazine issue.
Please let me know if I can answer any questions for you, and thank you for inquiring!
Can fondant be used on sugarveil mat jus like any other silicon mold.. or do they work only with sugarveil icing? Thanks
