I use SV every once in awhile, and I haven't bothered to buy a mat. You can just use parchment paper. Put a printed or hand drawn web underneath the parchment paper, and pipe away.

I picked this up off this website yesterday:

OPTION ONE
3 egg whites
1Tbsp Cream of Tartar
2lbs Powder Sugar
1 pkg Gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)
2 cups MM (melted)
 
OPTION TWO
Ingredients
3 Tablespoons Meringue Powder 
6 Tablespoons Water 
1 Tablespoon Cream of Tarter 
1 Tsp Vanella 
1 1/2-2 pounds Powdered Sugar 
2 cups Marshmallows (squish into measuring cup as much as you can) melted 
8 Packages Geletin 
1 Cup Hot Water 
Food dye gel
 
Instructions
3 Tablespoons meringue powder, 6 Tablespoons Water, 1 Tablespoon Cream of Tarter, 1 tsp vanella, mix well with wisk until lumps are gone. Add Powdered Sugar until it is about twice as thick as buttercream icing. (very stiff) may be lumpy. Add melted marshmallows. Dump 8 packages of geletin into a separate bowl and mix with 1 cup hot water, wisk until all lumps are gone. Add to Previous mixture by pouring geletin mixture through a strainer, and mix with a wisk until smooth. Add food gel dye to desired color and then microwave entire mixture 20 seconds at a time until very warm and mixture is smooth. Pour into piping bag and using a #5 tip pipe webs onto wax paper covered with a good layer of crisco to prevent sticking. If you don't use crisco they will stick to wax paper. Let set up for about 4-5 hours and then pick up webs careful not to let the webs bend and touch itself (they won't crack but will stick to itself!!) and drape on cake. As you work, your mixture WILL thicken, when it is too hard to pipe just take the tip off your bag and microwave on a plate for 5 seconds, replace tip and run tip under hot water while squeezing bag slightly until it flows easily again. When mixture in bowl thickens, just microwave for 20 seconds at a time until warm and smooth again. I hope this works for you as well as it did for me!! Just rember, you have to work with this stuff warm!! You can refrigerate mixture and just warm and wisk up again for more use.

I recently found several shops on Etsy that sell sugarveil mats, most of them are under $10. The shops are all based out of China, and I imagine that they are not the Sugarveil brand, the shops specialize in molds for all kinds of things. I have yet to purchase, but just thought I'd put it out there. All you have to do is search "embossing mat" and scroll through the results and you'll see the mats. Most of them ate called 'delicate flower' something or other. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

Hello Bakingshell,

 

To make lace without using the SugarVeil Confectioners' Mats, just place the bride's lace on a copier, print out the design, then place it under a sheet of greased parchment paper and trace/pipe over the lines with a parchment cone filled with SugarVeil Icing. You can also pipe out a monogram the same way, and when it is partially set, submerge the piping tip into the monogram and build it up to a nice dimensional shape (that has soft, sculpted edges). 

 

For other lace designs, you can download and print the lace designs from cakes pictured on this page http://www.sugarveil.com/icing_dispenser/design_patterns.htm, place under greased parchment paper, and trace/pipe with a piping bag or a parchment cone filled with SugarVeil icing. When SugarVeil "sets", you can peel it from the parchment and, because it is flexible, you can wrap the lace around a cake after peeling, or make it days ahead of time and store it between sheets of parchment in a zipped bag until you are ready to place it onto the cake. Go to http://www.facebook.com/sugarveilicing to see lots of cake photos with lace, or you can go here and see instructional SugarVeil videos: http://www.youtube.com/sugarveil. Thank you!
