Has anyone here used Claire Bowman's cake lace and mats? I'm wondering how they compare to Sugarveil? Her mats look more ornate than Sugarveil's and seem to be more reasonably priced. Would appreciate feedback. Thanks!

AHow long is it supposed to take to get there? I'm doing a wedding shower cake at the end of the month and am wondering if I have enough time to order and figure it out before I need to do the cake...let me know how you like it!

ASo i just bought it on the 2nd and it is supposed to be ship to me today so maybe by the beginning of next week?? I live in CT so it might take a bit but she does have a special, spend 75$ and she will ship you a free stencil of her choosing! Ive spent alot of time googling Cakelace and so far it seems to be better, as a sugarveil user i was totally not happy with it and pretty much ruined the cake i was doing. Ill keep you posted when it arrives!

I'd be interested to know if anyone has any luck with this product..I recently tired Sugarveil and it went sooo wrong. It was hard and not pretty at all. I thought it was my dry climate..but maybe its the product. Let us know how/if it works..would be much apprechiated!

I just found a thread from a few weeks ago comparing the two...I commented on it so it's been bumped up, but here's the link just in case...it seems that cake lace is definitely better!

AI love the cake lace,I haven't tried sugar veil so I can't compare the two. I can say tho instructions are to put in a warm oven to dry...my oven doesn't go that low so I just dry at room temperature for a few hours, and that works beautifully. And I one of them I got is the premade silver,loved not having to mix and have perfect consistency but wasn't impressed (my opinion) with the color for that one.

Update!! Love love love love love cake lace!!! I just recieved mine yesterday and literally used it right away even though i didnt really use it fpr anything jejej.

But the instructions are pretty easy, awesome texture and lovely just overall. So i def! Recommand you buying cake lace before your cake date that way you have a good feel around cake lace!

Thank you!!! I actually ordered it last night and it's already shipped. So excited to experiment with it! Is there a learning curve? The youtube videos (of course) make it look so simple!

ACake Lace is very, very easy to use with fabulous results. Just follow the instructions for perfect results every time, it can also be coloured. Once the lace is made it can be wrapped in grease proof paper and keeps flexible for months. Some I made a few weeks ago....

I love sugar dress.  Best results for me.  Lace stays pliable if placed in a plastic bag.

Cake lace is the best on the market so easy to use comes in a full range of colours also.

 

The mats are brilliant they are the only ones to replica real lace so delicate also 3D.

AI need some help with the conversion of Clair's 50ml of water. Exactly how much water do you add? And if my oven doesn't go to 80 degrees then I guess I have to air dry it? Someone on here said it took a couple hours. The directions say up to 8 hours. I guess it all depends? Just keep an eye on it. I don't know!!

50 ml is 1.7 fl ounces I had it on 70 but it wasn't done in that time so I left it on about twice the time. How low does it go?

Save yourself a lot of tears and just order Sugar Dress.  Probably the same as Cake Lace but I too will only use SugarVeil if a stiff bow loop is needed.  Will be posting a corset with Sugar Dress Lace soon.  Delivering it tomorrow.  Can't wait.

ACake lace is the best heat your oven to 70 degrees if it is gas by using a oven thermometer then turn off and place in the oven this works perfect or you can air dry it takes 3/4 hours.

DeniseNH Posted 5 May 2014 , 9:04pm

That would be 170 degrees in the USA.  :-)

AI know you're ovens lowest is 170 degrees so if you put in a oven thermometer and heat it till it reaches 70 degrees place caje lace in then turn the oven off this works perfectly.
