I made some sugar veil lace that I want to attach to buttercream. Do I just stick it on when the buttercream is still wet or is there a way I can attach it after the butercream has crusted?
the sugar veil people can take good care of you
i would just a take a little bit of leftover dried sugar veil and place it on the uncrusted buttercream
and see if it dissolved
then i'd just test it a bit on crusted bc
but the sugar veil people are very helpful and quick to respond
AIt will adhere best if your buttercream has not crusted.
Thanks, guys! Bakers wife, SugarVeil sticks to any surface (including you). If the buttercream has crusted, you can moisten the back side of the SugarVeil decoration just a little bit (a slightly moistened fingertip is the best vehicle) and it will stick readily.
Do let us know if you've any further questions. One of the best ways to get our attention quickly is via our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/sugarveilicing (and there's also lots of great cakes to look at from all different parts of the world) - thank you!
I made the mistake of using piping gel!!! Don't do it! Everything is so sticky it rolls up on itself !! So I used my homemade sugar glue. Only very very lightly however. It's easier with the buttercream NOT crusted but if it is u can ever so lightly brush the sugar glue over it and brush it on the buttercream.
Hi Doodie - All we use to adhere SugarVeil to any surface is a tiny bit of water on a fingertip touched to a few places on the back of the SugarVeil decoration, so you might try that, too. Everyone has their own way of working with SugarVeil, but normally it'll stick to just about any surface as-is (without the moisture) with a tiny bit of pressure.
I use Sugar Dress rather than Veil, but I’d imagine both work very similarly. I ice my cakes and chill them…probably not necessary but I like the firm surface when trying to attach something so that it isn’t so easy to mar.
I take my lace, place it face down on a clean hard surface, then pat all over the back side with a damp paper towel…not too wet, just enough to sort of moisten the lace. It will adhere really easily this way.
