Thanks MelC.
I've had the dispenser for some time but failed miserably the first time I used it so it's been delegated to dragee use only. When I went to the Bakery Expo last week, a very nice woman at the SugarVeil booth gave me a demo and let me try it to get the feel. I'm excited to try it for a cake this weekend. Wish me luck.

I used sugarveil for the first time last week and really loved it! It was so much easier than I thought it would be. I was kind of in a hurry so I put it in the dehydrator to dry. Worked perfectly, it was so fun to work with.

I had a little trouble getting the color I wanted, it took a lot of color, maybe next time I'll try coloring the water first before I mix it?

Can you color it? I was thinking about making an Elvis cake for my neighbor, and had thought about putting black lace on it. I just ordered this on Friday, so ofcourse I don't have it yet.

I'm going to make a cake, with ivory BC, and white roses (with white daisies out of gum paste,), and a few cake pops on top, for my class level 1 cake. I'm going to put white lace around it.

The lace and gum paste, ofcourse, are not in the beginning class, but I can do it, so what ever, huh? Very excited to get it. Can you store it in a plastic bag, and use the peices for other things?

Rhonlynn, for black, be sure to use powdered color (you can add it to SugarVeil before adding the water). SugarVeil is so white-white, it takes alot of color to make it black, and if you add that much gel to make it dark, it turns into something that's no longer SugarVeil. Ditto for red, or any dark/intense color; otherwise you can use any liquid or gel color - any brand works fine to color SugarVeil.

After you peel the mat from the lace, you can place the lace between sheets of parchment paper in a zipped bag and store out of sunlight so they will be flexible to use later.

P.S. You can also airbrush white SugarVeil lace or other decorations. This is really the easiest way to color SugarVeil - make all your decorations white, and then airbrush color onto them.

If you would like to color only one side of the lace, airbrush the lace while it's set but still in the mat.

Can Sugarveil be cut using the Cricut Cake? If so how would you attach them to a fondant cake and would the decorations last a long time on a dummy cake like fondant or gum paste does? Would it look different from fondant? would anyone be able to tell it's not fondant?

Hi Kelly- SugarVeil cuts great in the Cricut Cake. in fact, we've a tutorial on our home page at http://www.SugarVeil.com (the drop down list under "Confectionery Icing"). It sticks to itself and to anything with a slight bit of moisture on a fingertip.

SugarVeil looks much finer than fondant - actually looks more like fabric than anything else. If you would like a glossy finish, spread it onto a shiny silicone mat surface; for a matte finish, spread it onto the back of one of our Confectioners' Mats (http://www.sugarveil.com/mat/sugarveil-mat.htm)

It is fine for dummy cakes (for any dummy cake bows, use a finger smear of white chocolate - almond bark works best - to keep the fluffiness of the bow indefinitely).

Thanks

Can I spread it on my Cricut Cake mat? If so do I need to add anything to the mat first?

Yes, Kelly, you can spread SugarVeil onto your Cricut Cake mat, just be sure to grease the mat well with a Crisco-type shortening beforehand and follow all the prep/working details in the tutorial.

We are to grease the blue lace mat before using it, right?
post #30 of 35
Rhonda, you needn't grease the Confectioners' Mat before using, just spread the white SugarVeil across it and when it has had enough time to set, it will remove very easily from the mat. Same thing for the back of the mat when spreading SugarVeil fabric - we designed it so you do not need to grease it before use. Always remember to remove (roll back) the mat from the lace/fabric, not vice-versa.

If you are using a Silpat or any other silicone mat, those you need to grease. Use a Crisco-type vegetable fat before applying SugarVeil (don't use spray oil).
