I just happen to have a bag of the Sugarveil Mix ... here are the ingredients:

sugar
dried egg whites
maltodextrin
cornstarch
xanthangum

Stir 10-12 tsp. boiling water into 1/2 C SugarVil mix and beat for 4 minutes until glossy and smooth.

BUT...

I just want to say, that amazing as they make it seem...Sugarveil did not work for me. I have posted this before. I think I'm pretty capable in the kitchen. I bought the powder, followed instructions to a tee, 3 times. I kept getting a very frothy liquid that actually turned yellow in the bag after a day.
I wrote to the company and they suggested I tried again. I did....and I was very careful....no dice.
I have read forums where people have had success....maybe it was me? Maybe I got a bad batch? Who knows....but this was my experience.



I've seen your cakes before, and if you're having trouble with it, then I'm scared to try it! This is intriguing though. The sugar bride is something to look at, but there's just something "un" edible about a sugarveil bodice on a real person...just me. BUt, it could take popping out of a cake to a whole new level...hmmm.

[quote="redhotmomof3"]Oops! Sorry crp7- thought I had done that- must have been on another forum! Here it is.......

3 egg whites
1Tbsp Cream of Tartar
2lbs Powder Sugar
1 pkg Gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)
2 cups MM (melted)

Are you using real egg whites or powdered and is the gelatin knox or great lakes or are you using JELLO? I purchased a package of sugar veil at the convention Sunday and it should be coming soon. I will try this recipe and see if the two of them are similar.

Thanks for all the experimentation with this recipe! I think the sugarveil looks cool, especially if it actually works! I can imagine a lot of uses for it! I really hope your recipe works and will try it out as soon as I can!

I'm anxoius to see posts from you and others that are trying it out, and maybe even tweaking the recipe to perfection!

Hi
I'm new to this site and was just reading what you had to say about the SugarVeil. My husband bought me the unit for Christmas and it is really amazing. I wish they would have included a really thick book with many ideas of how to use it.If anyone has any questions about it, let me know and I will be happy to answer them if I can!

I've written down the recipe to try this weekend after finals (yuk!) and my dh and I will scuplt with it. Has anyone else (other than redhotmamaof3) tried this yet? Could we scuplt with this in replacement of fondant or gumpaste?? Does it dry hard?? I am so excited to try this!!

I loved the wedding gown in Sugarveil, painting the naked lady sure makes it a seller!! Why didn't they do a choclate tux version??? icon_smile.gif

Okay, does anyone know the final result of this post? Did redhotmomof3 experiment herself into a copycat version of SugarVeil successfully? I'd like to try this if it works. Does anyone know?

TIA
