I think I may have cracked the Sugarveil recipe......Maybe - Page 10

post #136 of 259
Somethin Sweet, can I use meringue powder instead of egg whites so it doesn't need refrigeration?
post #137 of 259

Hello, quick question about this recipe to the people that have tried it. Does this means I can do some designs with this icing and they'll be flexible/bendable just like sugarveil??

If it works I sure would like to have the ratio of the ingrediants

The humidity here is extremely high.so I always use oven to dry my confectionery icing. But once I take them out and keep in the air. They would turn to be sticky and soft again. Anyone has the idea to prevent this ? Or is it just normal?

It would be normal if that is confectionary icing.  Not sure with the sugar veil from what I understand of the product.  I have not used it to be quite honest.

 

The ingrediant to making the recipe flexible would be xanthan gum.  Think chewing gum, it is the ingredient the makers of chewing gum use for that purpose.

Hi I have a home made sugar veil recipe! 

 

You can increase the amount of ingredients if you need more of it.

Here goes..

1 Tbsp Tylose

1/4 cup BOILING Water

1Tbsp confectioner sugar

2 level tbsp corn starch

1/4 tsp meringue powder/egg white powder

1/2 tsp. corn syrup

Pinch of white icing color or one of your choice color

 

Add Tylose to boiling water and with a small fork mix until you get a clear mixture.

When mix is clear, add confectioner sugar and mix, then add your cornstarch and mix again.  Add the meringue powder and mix again.  Then add your corn syrup.

Add coloring after this has been mixed. 

 

this mix can be kept in the refrigerator for a week.  To work with it leave it at room temperature.  Once you have made the lace, you can store it in a plastic zip lock bag.

To restore the elasticity, just place a damp kitchen towel on top, but not too long... keep checking it.

 

Good Luck!!!! :)

I have bought the sugar veil set and other mats and its been a complete disaster. Not as easy as they make it look! One day I will try again.

I do know that one of the tips in using sugarveil is that you must not use any water that has been chemically softened, or with any added minerals.

They suggest you use only pure water no minerals or fluoride in it. Try using distilled water or water made by the Gerber Company called PURE.

Also, make sure that your home humidity is not too high or too low.

This is the same recipe that Joan Pinto in Venezuela teaches!!!....

 

He is an Amazing teacher and Cake Decorator professional!!... I love all his classes...

 

the difference is that he use Glucose instead of corn syrup, and the merengue powder is not the same amount if you change it for egg whites...

 

I can tell that this recipe works perfectly!!!...

 

 

HTH...   :)

I did make it, this past week, and used it for my hubby's birthday.  He requested a cheesecake!  I used the sugar veil mold of course.

This turned out perfectly!
