Cakelady247, You buy Pavlova Magic at the supermarket, i.e. Coles or Woolies or probably any other as well.

hennahk,

I have not tried gumtex in this recipe, but it seems to work in a lot of them as a replacement for Tylose.   It is not expensive, so why don't you just cut the recipe down into smaller amounts and try it.  In certain applications, gumtex does not thicken the way Tylose does, so it will not give the same elastic effect.  Tylose can easily be ordred from ebay, or other sites on the internet.  WalMart even carries it.  Hope this helps some.

I used  gumtex instead of tylose and it did not work.  :(

Why don't you try to find if you have gum tragacanth? Or try the other gums on half the recipe to see which one works? I think you can find the others.

I did try it but I ended up using a little more water.  The consistency just didn't seem right.  I used it with an inexpensive mat that I purchase from wholeport and it did work.  The first time I put too much on the mat and was impatient so it didn't come out too well.  I tried it a second time using much less and letting it dry a bit and it came out pretty good.  Didn't use it on anything.  It was just a test.

 

 

 

did u try with tylose powder or without tylose powder .. please reply ?

Melt MM in microwave in 30 sec. intervals till melted, stirring well after each.  Don't want to burn the sugar, now do we?  Use immediately, will harden as it cools.

This was Goreti's post, and she was responding to the post above hers, which was about DawnEdwards recipe, which used Tylose.  So I feel sure she was using Tylose.  Hope this helped.

Can someone tell me how to post a picture??? icon_redface.gif [/img]

HI Kellig,

Were you able to come up with that recipe yet??  Can I have it??  Please, please, please...I like the idea that it will dry AND remain flexible.

Even SugarVeil has to be put in an airtight baggy to keep it flexible.  Every recipe I have tried can do that, but none will remain flexible in the open air.  The only advantage that I can see with using SugarVeil over the other recipes, is that it dries, & can be removed from the mold, fairly quickly.  I came close, but after 24 hours it started getting a little brittle, would still flex some, but did break if I bent it too far.  That was with it sitting out on the table the entire time.  So we really do need your recipe, if you have finished it yet?  Thanx!

I have been researching icing pens, because the Sugarveil one is so over priced!  It looks kind of like my $30 airbrush without the needle.
Below are the only options I could come up with.  2 are manual, and 2 are battery operated.
I have #1, and have ordered #2, #3, & #4.  I will keep one, give one to my sister, and the other to a very good 'cakie' friend.  AFTER I have tried them, of course.
 
If anyone has already tried these, please give your feedback!!
 
#1
The original icing pen, manual operation.  Mixed reviews here also.
Averages $10-$15 with shipping

They all came in, & I put them to the test.

 

The E-Z DECO icing pen: Blue with the manual lever.  This gave the best control, and you could swap tips more easily, you could use ANY tip you wanted, and it produced the best results, with the least mess!.  It fit in the hand, as if you were holding a pen, felt normal.  And you could see what you were doing easily.  And better control the flow.  I even did some string work with it, using the frosting.  And a 4 row high over-piping, again using the frosting.  I could not do these with the other 2 pens.  I did not make royal for these tests.  This is not to say that this pen is any easier than just using an icing bag.  But the more I used it, the better I liked it.

 

The original plunger icing pen:   It did produce a nice thin line, BUT...If you squeeze on it WITHOUT holding the plunger down some, the plunger just gets forced back up and so you run out of icing, no pressure.  And if you apply pressure to the plunger as you write, it works, but is a little hard to control /stop the icing from coming out a little when you are done with a letter, and no longer want it to come out.  It does work, but not as well as the above option.

 

Battery operated Frosting Deco Pen:  I had high hopes for this one, but...  You can only use the tips that came with it, and the writing tip is just tooo big!  I like a finer line.  And it is messy to fill, the plate they provide for filling the pen from the bought icing container, really made a mess.  But the worst part was controlling the flow!  You have a fast and a slow speed.  The slow speed is fast enough.  You press all the way down to force the icing OUT.  Then you  back off the pressure HALF WAY to throw it into reverse, so the flow will stop!  If you let the pressure off the switch all the way WITHOUT this 'halfway' step, the flow continues and you have a mess.  I experimented with all the tips, was able to get them to work, but not how I would have liked...  I am a very unhappy camper with this one.

 

Maybe we can figure how to adapt a cheapo air brush to do the job??  Hope someone can figure this one out for us.  lol

Hi everyone!  Finally was able to upload the pictures, showing the results, of using each of these pens.

 

The original plunger icing pen:

This was done using the little pen with the plunger, #1 in the pictures.

Main drawback in my opinion, is that it does not hold enough icing, and it is hard to fill.

Probably not doing it properly.   And, yes, I can write a little neater than that!  It was running out of icing-again!

And it only has the one writing tip.

 

The E-Z DECO icing pen: Blue with the manual lever. 

This pic shows the best results that I was able to obtain, using tip #3 with the E-Z Deco icing pen, pic #2.

You can use any tip you want with this one, and NOT the others.  I did some quick string work on the container.

And a 5 high over-piping, that fell over because I did not let it set up between pipings, & I was using DH frosting.

Then I did a 4 high one that stayed put, also with the DH frosting.  .

 

Battery operated Frosting Deco Pen:

This pic shows how thick the icing comes out using the battery operated pen, #3 in the pictures.

The reg. piping tip has a hole that is just too large for any decent writing, IMO.

(JWinslow, I remembered that one! lol)
