Fortunate for us, Apti, SugarVeil starts out tasting good.Add candy melts, (or even better yet 'top shelf' chocolate like Valrhona), and the brooches taste absolutely divine!
Didavista, the texture is firm, like candy clay. Pliable until the candy clay/chocolate hardens, which can be quick if you pop it into the freezer for a few minutes - really is amazing to see the candy melts texture change to clay instantly upon adding in some SugarVeil!
If you stir prepared SugarVeil Icing into (melted) candy melts, it instantly turns into candy clay! So quick - was able to make perfect brooches with it today! Here's the recipe: 2 Tbl. prepared SugarVeil [instructions for preparing are here http://sugarveil.com/mat/SugarVeil-Confectioners-Mats.pdf] to 1/4 c (about 20) candy melts. It's pretty amazing - happens instantly! More commentary at http://www.facebook.com/sugarveilicing.
Hi Jeanne - here are a few tips for you. If it's dry where you are (or if you have a furnace or oven or fire going that dries out the air), and you're working for extended periods of time with very delicate SugarVeil decorations, roll up a few wet towels and place around the immediate border of your work area. I use a dish 'pad' (one that you place on the countertop to absorb the water from freshly washed dishes) directly under my silicone mat work area - like this:  It...
Cupcake you'll need to use whatever would allow your fondant brooch to be supported by the cake (my guess would be a not-too-moist royal icing). Since SugarVeil is pretty delicate, the brooch would need to be pretty small and light weight for SugarVeil to be the support (if I'm understanding your post correctly). Gum glue, royal icing, as well as a tiny bit of moisture under the brooch would all stick to SugarVeil - just use a minimum of moisture in whatever you choose to...
Chqtpi, so sorry to have somehow missed your post here. Parchment paper is a better choice than wax paper for parking SugarVeil (if you must use wax paper, then grease it with solid vegetable fat so the SugarVeil will release easier), and store the decorations air tight until you are ready to place them onto the cake. To set SugarVeil within minutes, follow these oven-setting instructions: http://www.sugarveil.com/mat/SugarVeil-Confectioners-Mats.pdf. And if you've ever a...

Hello qtrican,   For making SugarVeil black, you can airbrush white SugarVeil decorations - this is the most economical way to do it, since it takes about 5 tsp. of powdered color mixed into one cup of dry SugarVeil to get a good black. Note that liquid or gel colors mixed into SugarVeil are great for medium or pastel shades, but because SugarVeil is so white-white, it takes way too much sticky liquid/gel color mixed into it to get a deep black, red, or any really...
