I think I may have cracked the Sugarveil recipe......Maybe - Page 8

post #106 of 260
FWIW, I used the recipe that daj85202 posted and it worked perfectly. We already had the ingredients in house (my fiance and I dabble in molecular gastronomy on the savory end) and voila icon_smile.gif It makes half a cup and the ingredients are really cheap.

I might invest in one of the lace veils. And first post, haha. Lurker I was. Hi folks icon_smile.gif

I found out the lady who developed Sugarveil is only 1/2 hour from my house...And I had no idea being in awe of it for a week. We both live in Kansas City,and I'm going to try to get in touch with them, to go and pick up an order.....cause it's a very exciting product....then I'm going to maybe play with it a bit, and your recipe too.

??? What was? The fake sugarveil or the real one? Which recipe did you use (there's several on this thread.) What went wrong?

It was someones recipe on here that was a waste of time and money. I was trying to find it yesterday but I cannot remember the title of the topic! In the forum or did i save the recipe in my favourite recipes which is annoying I must have just written it down. I'll just have to buy the real thing lol

Wheeeee silly me! Found it lol 'just found the heading ' my forum posts' yep I know totally mad! Mad as a hatter lol did you see my latest cake? Funny this website I thought this cake would surely get some great comments but I have only had one :0( I'm so proud of my cake. Seeing I am self taught and only started making cakes like this since October/November 2010 and I think I'm getting better and better! Is it because I'm from the uk? And not American?

daj85202...that was smart to do...to get the true recipe. So, I did some searching to see if I could find the exact ingredients. The "sugar" is drivert sugar and is described as a "dry fondant sugar used in icings and pan coated confections" it has invert sugar in it and that helps keep it moist, so obviously regular powdered sugar is not exactly the ingredient and, therefore, will not perform like drivert will.
The meringue powder is just dried egg white powder which can be found at most supermarkets and is much cheaper than Wilton's Meringue Powder. The "starch" is actually a type of corn starch,called Mira-Gel, that when added to liquids produces a gel, but with the amount used in this recipe it acts as a texture modifier. It has to be purchased from a specialty store or bakery supplier. The xanthan gum acts as a thickening agent, but also as a stabilizer. Finally, the maltodextrin, simply described is a corn based sweetener, but apparently it does a little more than that in the process of baking, etc. or it wouldn't be mentioned separately.
So, now that we have the actual "recipe", does anyone think they will try to reproduce it exactly?
I may give it a go one day when I don't have anything else planned. I'd love to see how it works, not to mention see if making it myself is any cheaper than just buying the darn stuff ready-made would be.
I would, obviously, never try to sell it...after all, it IS patented and I know that if I had been the one smart enough to come up with this recipe, I certainly wouldn't want people "bootlegging" my product, so I will respect that with Ms. Hester as well.
If anyone else DOES eventually come up with a recipe that does not infringe on a patent and actually WORKS like the REAL thing, I would love to try that one also, so please share the recipe. I, myself, will most likely read up on these ingredients a little more as well as any substitutes/alternatives and may actually get in the kitchen to see what I can come up with. I will keep you guys posted if and when I do...

@techie81, so sorry...I did not see your post about having tried the actual recipe before I posted my last comment...okay, so now that you have tried it and found that it DOES work and IS cheaper, I will definitely give it a go. I am still going to see if I can get close to it with ingredients that are a little easier for home bakers to find, just to see if it can be done...

It will be interesting to see what you come up with...By the time I waste my gas going to Lenexa and beyond, it's probably as easy to order the stuff. with each ingredient being specialized. (explain: I live in Independence,MO, and Lenexa is about 40 minutes away, but the store is worth the trip...but not for ingredients like that.

She sells lace molds, but not Sugarveil. But I talked to the owner of the cake supply shop about the SV,and she wants to see it after I make it, when I get it. Some ingredients are quite expensive, compared to buying an actual thing. (like gum paste ingredients) .

1 pkg Gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)
2 cups MM (melted)

Are you using real egg whites or powdered and is the gelatin knox or great lakes or are you using JELLO? I purchased a package of sugar veil at the convention Sunday and it should be coming soon. I will try this recipe and see if the two of them are similar.



I'm new at this..my 1st post so I hope I make sense. Don't know what MM (melted) is..... thanks for your help
post #117 of 260
are not the ultimate understanding of MM 2 cup (melted) someone could explain me

Did this thread get corrupted? It says there are 9 pages but I get a "no topics exist" notice when I click on the last page. Is this happening to anyone else?

I tried the Gummy Spider Web recipe today for lack of anything else to make "webs" and I found it turned out fine. It is like gummy worm consistency, so if you're going for cotton candy like webs, or lace, this isn't going to work.

I put the liquid in a squeeze bottle (the kind you use for candy melts/candy making) and flung it back and forth on two-sheets-wide of waxed paper (coated in Crisco) in a criss cross pattern, and then just diagonal a few times. It dries to the touch in about an hour or two. It did not dry hard, but I messed up the recipe in halving it icon_razz.gif I halved everything except the 1 cup of water for the gelatin, so it was more liquid-y than it should have been.

Here is a picture of my webbing with mess up on the recipe:
