I think I may have cracked the Sugarveil recipe......Maybe - Page 2

post #16 of 260

Oops! Sorry crp7- thought I had done that- must have been on another forum! Here it is.......

3 egg whites
1Tbsp Cream of Tartar
2lbs Powder Sugar
1 pkg Gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)
2 cups MM (melted)

I mixed the first 3 ingredients together for 10 minutes as if making royal........then added the Gelatin, then the Marshmellows..........beat until it is stiff enough to pipe ( maybe 5 more minutes or so)

Try it and see what you think!

My sis brought her surag veil stuff when she visited last month. Boy, that air pen works slick. I'd love to have one, but will hold off till I'm doing more cake business. The thing about using the gun is the work it saves your hands. You hold it like a pen and control it with your index finger over the hole that regulates the flow. Super easy! You just develope a feel for it like anything else. Wish she lived closer so I could play with it on one of my projects. I played with it using colored piping jel so can't comment on the sugarveil itself but I am sure impressed with what I see on their site.

Red hot....I am going to try your recipe...thanks....I'll post my results....

BUT...

I just want to say, that amazing as they make it seem...Sugarveil did not work for me. I have posted this before. I think I'm pretty capable in the kitchen. I bought the powder, followed instructions to a tee, 3 times. I kept getting a very frothy liquid that actually turned yellow in the bag after a day.
I wrote to the company and they suggested I tried again. I did....and I was very careful....no dice.
I have read forums where people have had success....maybe it was me? Maybe I got a bad batch? Who knows....but this was my experience.

Adven68- I hate it did not work for you...That would be my luck too! I have not used the Sugarveil personally, so I can't say for sure this is the same thing (or even close to it) I did have to beat it for 10 minutes, then after I added the Gelatin and MM - for another 5 minutes......It came out so fluffy! Try this and let me know how it works for ya! Good Luck!

Adven68, I just looked at your photos again and cannot imagine what you might do with sugar veil. Your work is amazing!! I am very taken with the detail work on your rocking horse christening cake. Wow!

I think the sugar veil looks neat too, but I"m not quite sure what you would do w/ it - sure you can make a doily-looking thing and put it over the top of the cake.... but what else can you do? I saw the wedding dress and yeah that's awesome, but I don't think I'll be making one of those any time soon...... icon_smile.gif

You could use it on a wedding cake to recreate any embroidery patterns that may be on the bride's wedding dress. It would probably be way better for detail then royal icing. Not to mention you could make it on a fondant drape and not worry about it cracking off.

Make a big lace sheet out of it and put it over your head. Run around and say "I'm a Sugar Woman! Eat me."
