SugarVeil Burlap and Needlepoint

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 

Do you think there's a customer out there that would ever want a 'needlepoint' or 'burlap' cake icon_razz.gif ? 

 

I've been experimenting and came up with these two kind of bizarre ways to use SugarVeil with a new mat that we have ('Woven' - it looks like Aida cloth http://www.sugarveil.com/mat/sugarveil-mat.htm).

 

Think one of these is a keeper, or [ha] should I keep on thinking)?

I can see the top sample incorporated into a cake for someone who is into needlepoint, embroidery or other needlecrafts.  I could see the bottom one as part of the decorations for a fall wedding theme with sunflowers or mums, or a harvest themed celebration.  It might even work for a more harvest themed halloween cake.  I'd want the needlepoint one in different colors myself, but the burlap bow is perfect

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Thank you all for the feedback - and the great ideas, too! Very much appreciated.

 

And thank you BakingIrene for the correction in terminology - needlepoint is totally unfamiliar territory for me.

Yes there is a customer who wants burlap on her wedding cake. I have been looking for what feels like days for a way to make burlap out f fondant. I'm so excited to find this post. Thank you for thinking outside the box.

I have a bride coming tomorrow who wants burlap, as well. I just can't justify the expense of the molds, as gorgeous as they are!

I have a bride who wants burlap.  How did you tie the bow without tearing it? This would be an adorable cupcake topper.

You don't tie a bow, you make a bow. 2 gathered loops, with a band in the middle to hold it together and cover the ugly edges, and make it bow-like. It isn't an actual bow, though. Set it on 2 gathered strips to mimic the ties.

Totero, Anna said it perfectly. Also, brush some powdered cocoa on the Woven Confectioners' Mat before spreading with white SugarVeil. And while the SugarVeil is still a bit tacky in the mat, dust more cocoa on top, too, so both sides of the 'Burlap' are the same rough brown color. For the edges, use sharp snips to create frays. Here are a few more shots of the Woven Mat: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151305699139893.490927.58910664892&type=3. And here are photos of making a bow (but no need to 'hem' the edges when working with the SugarVeil burlap): http://www.sugarveil.com/information/pdf/acdm.pdf. Thank you!

I see how the burlap is done but how do you create individual looking stitching effect with Sugarveil? I'm not familiar with Sugarveil.icon_smile.gif
