I was trying to make a sugarveil recipe, but most call for tylose powder which I couldn't find. So I turned to gel.
Here's what I found worked for me, though it's not exact and I'd tweak it for your preference:
1/2 packet knox gelatine packet dissolved in about 2 - 3 tablespoons warm water
1 teaspoon xantham gum powder
approx 3 - 4 tblspoons powdered sugar
You might have to mess around with how much powdered sugar you put in, but this gave me a clear flexible gel that was easy to work with. If it set up on me, I just popped it in the microwave for 10 seconds and it softened up again to work with. Plus, it tastes great :) Wish I could post a picture on the forum....
Anyone know of an easy sugarveil recipe that doesn't have tylose in it? and perhaps uses fresh egg whites?
85 g. 10x sugar
4 g. tapioca maltodextrin
3 g. egg white powder
2 g. corn starch
1 g. xanthan powder
80 g. cold water
Sift dry ingredients
Add water and beat 3 minutes on medium speed
Spread into very lightly greased mats
Setting conditions similar to SV, maybe a little quicker
Not clear, but pretty white
