Ok, So here is my problem I can't afford to purchase the Sugarveil mat but would love to get a lace design for the side of my cake. Does anyone know how to use Sugarveil other then putting it on the mat. icon_cry.gif

I've used Sugarveil twice and only purchased the actual product. I believe it tells you in the directions to crisco up wax paper. I didn't have any problems with it sticking that way. I used it to make spiderman webs, not lace but can't see how it wouldn't work! Hope this helps.

well, i have used it on a silicone place mat (the cheap ones you get at walmarts) with out any problems. I don't see why you couldn't use it on waxed paper or parchment.

You can Crisco parchment paper and it will work just fine.

Ok thanks for the ideas everyone but I need a lace design I can get it not to stick with your ideas about that but can anyone help with the lace part of it?

I misunderstood your question. Sorry about that, you are talking about the lace mat, not the silicone mat. You just need to find a copy of a piece of lace that you like. Sugarveil.com actually has some on their website I beleive, print it out, tape it to a table with a piece of criscoed parchment, also taped down to the table. Then just trace the design by piping on the sugarveil since you can see through the parchment. Let the Sugarveil set and peal it off. Its a lot more work, but worth it.

I was just looking at these lace mats this morning. I think you're talking about the ones with the impression--you just spread the product over the top, then let it dry--no piping!!
I too was wondering if the was a cheaper option...

I completely agree, it is very expensive. I have thought of how to make it and it is very complicated and costly, so unfortunately paying up and buying the mat is the best thing to do to save the fuss, bother and potential wasted money of trying to re-create.

 

But! a good idea is to buy the mat and then sell the finished product (lace designs) to friends, I believe two lace designs are going for 10 Pounds at the moment for other people who cant afford the mat and just want it for one cake or some designs.I believe they do well in the post if packaged right. So the mat will pay itself off in no time + maybe more money in the kitty for another mat design!

I actually made my own lace mat using a vinyl tabecloth and silicone mold.  Worked like a charm!

Sugarveil is Sugarveil, and I'm quite sure they haven't released their recipe to the general public.
