I think I may have cracked the Sugarveil recipe......Maybe

post #1 of 262

OK- so I got bored tonight.... icon_rolleyes.gif ...DH is out of town.........and I thought I would do a little experimenting. Have been amazed by the wonders of Sugarveil- I have not actually used it so I don't know exactly what it should "feel" like.........BUT I started mixing a few things together- egg whites, cream of tartar, p sugar, gelatin, and melted marshmellows.......kinda cross between fondant and royal.........so I beat all of it together for about 10 minutes, piped some things and am waiting for them to dry. It's been about an hour, and so far so good.....firm but flexible! We will see! thumbs_up.gif

I will definitely be watching to see the results! Sugarveil is something that I am just in awe of but of course don't want to spend the money without using/seeing if it is something I would actually get my money worth.

This will be interesting.

Do a search on Google.......It's pretty amazing stuff! It is firm like royal, but flexible like fondant.......it can be used in the machine that they sell, or piped through a pastry bag using a tip.....I have just recently discovered it, and have been intrigued! I like the idea of it being flexible. I have a wedding cake that I have to do that has a Monogram on a round cake, which is what got me to searching! We will see how this experiment turns out! So far so Good!!!!

OH OH
you know what - there's a question I have about sugarveil anyway. I was on their site and I see you can buy a 1 lb resealable bag of mix for something like...12 dollars...anyone who's used this, can you tell me do you mix with water? I'm assuming since the bag is resealable you can make this in small batches, what is the procedure?

Is it worth the money, just in case redhotmomof3 doesn't get back to us because she's found the secret and is out there making millions right this very moment?

Sorry for taking so long........DH got back into town and cant stand having to share my attention! LOL! He says CC is my "boyfriend"!

OK.......so this is what I learned - this can be frozen or refrigerated when dry without any change whatsoever! Once you pipe your design, it takes about 2-3 hours before it is dry enough to pick it up........it can be applied to the cake then. Or you can let it dry overnight and it will get hard- but not nearly as hard as royal- It will not break your teeth if you try to bite it! LOL! It even tastes pretty good! Once dry, it is no longer flexible. So, it you want to put a design on a round cake, I would do so after 3 or 4 hours-

One more thing.....I kept the leftovers in a container in the fridge, and they firmed up a little bit, but once whipped up again with the mixer, it was the same as it was before! DH is gone again this week, so I'm gonna play some more! I'll let y'all know! Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

I have decided that I like it...from the first click on the web site and looking at the picture of the sugarveil bride. I deem it a gift from the sugar gods.
