Hello all - just happened upon this post and wanted to be sure to make a correction: SugarVeil contains no gelatin (it's also OU Kosher Pareve non-gluten, non-dairy, and contains no additives or preservatives). And on the eve of Halloween, here's a timely note: we've just added a set of three new mats to the website (including a spider web), and are giving away a sugar skull mold for a limited time with the mats: http://sugarveil.com/mat/gothic-mat.htm. You might get a kick out of this video showing 'live' skeletons demoing the mats, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am1J7I6pknQ&feature=c4-overview&list=UUr1MIDb0OmyMmpkqxsGq-Rw. Thank you!

Mine is still going well, mix is still able to be used , 6 day from when it was made. Have made lots of lace.

What type of lace mold did you us?
post #203 of 259
The molds come from ebay, cost about $3.50 each with free shipping.
 
 
This recipe works well with these molds.  To re-soften to bend around your cake, just lay a damp cloth over them for a minute or so.
 
Sugar Lace (or MOCK SUGARVEIL)
 
   1 T. Tylose 
1/4 c boiling water
    1 T. conf sugar
   1 T. cornstarch
1/2 tsp meringue powder
1/2 tsp corn syrup
 

In mixer bowl, combine Tylose & water, mix until completely clear.  Then add the other ingredients, one at a time, in the following order, blending well after each addition.

Conf. Sugar, cornstarch, meringue powder, then corn syrup.  When all is added, beat on medium high for 4 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl with spatula as needed.  A hand mixer can be used because the amt. you are working with is so small.  Store in ziplock bag with all excess air removed or SV will dry out.  Pipe to make webs,nets, & flower outlines.  When using molds, leave flat to DRY WELL, before handling.  Bending the dry mold will break the lace.  If the finished items become too stiff, soften them by placing a slightly damp towel over item as needed to regain flexibility, then remove from mold & bend to apply to cake.  Store finished items flat in airtight containers or ziplocks.  Cleanup with hot water.  Sometimes the lace will rise out of the mold as it dries. 

All things 'CAKE' are rapidly becoming a very exciting & rewarding hobby for me,

but the 'grandkids' will always be my real passion.

How do you know when it's 'done'? That is, what is the certain appearance you're looking for after mixing for 4 minutes?

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

It will become a little thick, pasty, & sticky. Spread it with a flat edge onto the mold, scraping off any excess.  Let dry several hours, lift an edge to check for elasticity before removing completely.  If you wait until it is firm, just soften by laying a damp cloth over it for a moment or two as needed for the flexibility you are looking for.  I often slide the mold off the table onto my palm, support the middle & work the edges loose.  Less likely to crack.  I am a novice.  This was my very first mold, made 3 days ago, and it went well.

What do you think?

I've order from this place.  The molds are a long strip, about the length of a half sheet pan.  I tried them out, and one came out great, and the other I fought with.  I used Sugarveil, which I am not very impressed with.  I've ordered a couple of mats and the Sugar Dress product from GSA.  Should be here today. I'm hoping it's a better product, but will try this recipe out too.  I'll post my results with the Sugar Dress and if I get around to the other.

This site has some different designs, some are the same as GSA, but they are only one strip.  The real mats have at least three per, so not sure which is the better way to go.
