Didn't we used to have a Sugerveil forum? Anyway I have some questions... I am getting ready to play around with some Sugarveil and was interested in using it on a cake due in a few days - I was going to use some fabric tulle on the cake but thought, hey! Maybe I can make the tulle out of Sugarveil!
I'm confused about drying times, how long its pliable and how long it will take to set in place? In short, what should my timing be if I need to pipe tulle, arrange it with my sugar flowers to make a topper, and have on a cake Friday?
Thanks in advance,
SugarVeil sticks to everything - fondant, gumpaste, a silicone mat (you need to grease silicone mats with Crisco when spreading SugarVeil onto them) - SugarVeil even sticks to you (ha - actually this is true; I attached lace pieces directly onto a model to accompany a SugarVeil wedding gown). Strange but true photos of this are here: http://www.sugarveil.com/gallery/sugarveilbride/sugarveil_bride.htm
Anyway, if your fondant happens to be dry, just use the slightest amount of moisture on your fingertip to attach the SugarVeil decoration to the fondant. Please let us know if we can be of help with any other questions you might have. You can email us at [email protected]

Lots of ways you can make tulle with SugarVeil, and it works wonderfully placed between/among sugar flowers. There are several examples on our Facebook page in the photos section (especially look at Kimberly Bailey's beautiful work) at http://www.facebook.com/sugarveilicing. You can use one of the fine lace Confectioners' Mats (http://www.sugarveil.com/mat/sugarveil-mat.htm) or pipe SugarVeil by hand. Drying time is dependent upon humidity. Thicker lines take longer to dry than thinner lines. If it is really humid where you are located, or you've piped really heavy lines, you can set SugarVeil in an oven with just the light turned on - it works great. You can make the decorations a few days before and store them between parchment sheets in a zipped plastic bag. Much information is also contained in our "Notes" section of our Facebook page. Please let me know if you've any other questions. Thank you!
AHi ! I'm fairly new to cake central forum, so I might need help from you guys. Can anyone suggest another way to make lace imprints for cakes or cupcakes without using sugarveil. It's a bit pricey and I'm just starting. Can I used the sugarveil mix on stencils as well ??
