Has anyone used SugarVeil to decorate cookies? I was wondering if it sticks to the cookie directly or if you need to have icing on the cookie first. I'm thinking of using it for a gingerbread house. Thanks for any help!

If you are just intending on draping the piece on the cake, like where it will kind of hang there, then no. It will eventually settle down and mold itself. Now, this being winter, and mostly dry in areas, your piece may become really brittle, and once you put it where you want it....don't even touch it. You'll kind of figure out where you need to use "glue" (royal icing, or just some sugar veil itself) as you go. Just have something on hand to be prepared.

I bought Sugarveil last year and never used it. If it works on your cookie please post pictures as I would love to try it (why did I buy it if I'm not going to use it???). Thanks!

Thank you for the input. I also emailed SugarVeil and they said:

"Yes, you can pipe SugarVeil directly onto cookies - it sticks to everything. You can also smooth it into "fabric" (see the "Decoredibles" section of our cake gallery at for more information) which may be cut/punched with paper craft tools.
We've a few gingerbread cookies on the site, and shortly we will post our gingerbread house completely decorated with SugarVeil (inside and out - wallpaper, rugs, tree and trimmings, lace curtains, etc)."
