Hi ilovefondant,

In general, when you work with SugarVeil in very humid climates, you design the SugarVeil decorations so they are completely supported by the cake. The stenciled dot and the ganache cake at the top of this page are both good examples:

Please let me know if I can help you with any other questions you might have.

Thank you,

Michele Hester
